Heed DACtilus 3 Digital to Analogue Converter

High performance 192kHz/24bit S/PDIF (Co-Ax or Optical) + Asynchronous USB Audio 2.0 DAC

The third generation Dactilus 3 D/A converter has been improved both technically and sonically. This has been achieved by using an analogue buffer amp stage that boosts the output, with low output impedance and high voltage, similar to our reference Obelisk 'da' converter, thus minimizing susceptibility and dependence with regard to cables and amplifiers. The Dactilus III utilises our well proven Dactil 1.2 DAC module, which is based around a highly integrated Wolfson D/A chip including not just D-to-A conversion, but also the basic output analogue filtering

Additionally the feature set has also been extended by including an auto selecting asynchronous USB Audio 2.0 input, again via a plug-in card like the Dactil module instead of the usual onboard solution, thus enabling future upgrades. The high performance USB Audio 2.0 (24bit/192 kHz, asynchronous) module is based around tthe current state of the art XMOS chipset solution.

Like all other Heed components, the Dactilus 3 benefits immensely from power supply upgrades. Replacing the basic supplied "in-line" power cord PSU with the separate high performance 'Q-PSU', catapults it into a significantly higher level of performance, up graders will appreciate this no-compromise upgrade for their Dactilus 3.
