SPL Audio Director Mk2

The Director Mk2 is the derivative of our reference preamplifier Director:vThe all new high voltage digital to analog converter now supports 32 bit and sample rates up to 768kHz as well as DSD4. Fans of analog tape machines or external audio processing can insert their beloved gear in the Tape Monitor loop. Now there is a total of six analog inputs. Two of which are balanced with XLR connectors. The housing has grown in height to provide space for the big aluminum volume control with marker LED and two mechanical VU meters.

 

The mandatory lowpass filter is built in 120V-VOLTAiR technology. The DAC768 features the new DLP120 lowpass filter board that contains two separate lowpass filters. Depending on the digital format the analg signals runs through the PCM or der the DSD filter.
