V DAC II Musical Fidelity - DAC Converter

The all new Musical Fidelity V-DAC II improves upon the original V-DACs benchmark performance. The distortion (0.002%) has been halved over the outgoing original V-DACand improved the stereo separation to an incredible 105dB.

The new V-DAC II has an asynchronous USB input. This is exactly the same technology and programming as used in our highly successful, enthusiastically reviewed V-Link. Featuring 24bit 192k upsampling reclocking V-DAC technology and a super-performance, asynchronous USB in one box. The V-DAC II has an improved finish and appearance, improved technical performance and asynchronous USB.

The V-DAC II brings true hi-fi quality digital-to-analogue conversion to an affordable price point.

From CDs to music streaming and downloads if you listen to digital music then you need a digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) before amplification and speakers can work their magic.

Computers and even many CD players use very basic DACs, meaning you wont get close to hearing the best from your music. That all changes when you add the dedicated V-DAC II: from lower bit-rate internet streams to better-than CD quality music files, your listening will be transformed.

With co-axial, optical and USB inputs, theres not a digital device the V-DAC II cant enhance itll even boost the performance of your TV receiver and Blu-ray/DVD player.

Crucially, its a 24bit/192kHz asynchronous USB design, offering a significant sonic step up for computer music lovers.

All this high-end hi-fi technology is presented in a solid casing with a sleek brushed silver finish. As with the rest of the V Series, the V-DAC II is a product youll be proud to own.

The original V-DAC was praised for offering premium hi-fi performance at an affordable price. The upgraded V-DAC II, with an advanced specification and fresh styling, provides even more exceptional value for money.

At the heart of the V-DAC II are a high-quality Burr Brown DSD 1796 DAC and Burr Brown SRC4392 asynchronous sampler. No other DAC at this price can offer such a combination of 24bit 192kHz upsampling, reclocking, and asynchronous USB in a beautifully built box that also boasts high-grade optical and coaxial inputs. Many far pricier DACs dont meet this high technical standard.

Asynchronous USB implementation is crucial it means the V-DAC II fully controls the transfer of audio data from your computer, isolating the signal from digital noise your PC and Mac can introduce.

The V-DAC II also improves on its predecessors already excellent technical performance. Distortion has halved to a remarkably low 0.002%, while stereo separation is now an incredible -105dB.

The results are audibly impressive. Hi-Fi Worlds review praised the V-DAC IIs clean, crisp and engaging sound, also confirming that it measured well in all areas.

The V-DAC IIs technical and performance excellence comes clad in suitably smart casing, complete with reassuringly solid aluminium extrusions and a smooth silver finish. As the Hi-Fi News review concludes: the V-DAC II is superb value for money, offering the latest package with looks that do its quality internals justice.
