Wireless USB DAC Transmitter: The DAC 2’s Transmitter consists of a mini-USB (type-B) connector with a mini-USB (type-B) to USB (type-A) adapter cable. Using the included USB cable, the DAC 2’s Transmitter plugs into your computer’s USB (type-A) port and bypasses all the analog circuitry in your PC and then wirelessly transmits high-resolution audio directly to the DAC 2’s Receiver, which is connected to your hi-fi system, using the native digital format for the best possible sound.
Wireless USB DAC Receiver: The DAC 2’s Receiver consists of a integrated Digital-to-Analog Converter with analog & digital audio outputs. Once the wireless HD audio is received at the DAC 2’s Receiver from the DAC 2’s Transmitter, the digital signal is converted and sent as an analog signal to your home receiver through stereo analog audio outputs. There is also a coax digital output that allows downstream digital processing.
24-Bit/192kHz DAC: To achieve the best possible sound, the DAC 2’s Transmitter digitally transmits the HD audio from your Mac or PC to the DAC 2’s Receiver, which then converts the digital signal to analog using premium Burr-Brown OPAmps (TI PCM1781) and 24-bit/192kHz Delta-Signma DACs with selected passive components in a proprietary NAD circuit.
