The DA is our multiple input, remote-controllable digital-to-analogue converter for the Obelisk family.

Digital to analogue conversion is not a staight-forward method in the audio world. There are many ways to achieve good results, but it requires great effort to make any of them sound excellent. The DA is the proof that a digital system, even from a CD, can sound as musical as a great turntable. This natural analogue performance of the DA is clearly outstanding.

The DA is not only the ideal compliment to our DT compact disc transport, it will also extract the very best from any digital source: computers, media servers, DAB tuners, satellite boxes, etc. And its modular DAC card and USB interface upgradeability assure future-proof enjoyment for many years to come.

Five inputs make the DA the digital center of your system. Moreover, there are two kind of outputs with different levels to find a perfect match to your other devices.

The USB input of the DA is a 24bit/192 kHz capable card, which utilises the well-accepted asynchronous transfer method. It employs an on-board dual quartz clocking system and benefits the nice and smooth power the DA mainboard provides.

At the DA’s heart lies the Dactil 2.1 DAC card, capable of 24bit/192 kHz high resolution signal processing. A deceptively simple module with excellent musical qualities, the Dactil 2.1 manages to scale new heights in the employ of the Obelisk DA’s ‘no compromise’ approach, featuring entirely independent supply rails for its analogue and digital sections.
