Leema Elements 24bit/192kHz Asynchronous DAC
The Leema Elements DAC is the first stand-alone Leema DAC and as such establishes the Leema benchmark for digital-to-analogue conversion, in performance as well as features.
Quattro Infinity DAC topolgy, first seen in the range-topping Antila IIS Eco CD Player, has been further developed and improved to ensure that the Elements DAC has outstanding technical performacne. All inputs, including the USB input, offer full 24 bit / 192 kHz capability. The latest asynchronous and multi-frequency adaptive modes ensure perfect synchronistation with the source for almost invisible levels of jitter, to ensure the highest possible quality of digital replay. The USB input on the Elements DAC is the first to use Spintronic Galvanic Isolation, meaning that there is no eletrical connection between the connected PC/Mac vastly reducing if not eliminated power supply noise and other contaminating noises into the DAC.
The inclusion of an analogue volume control allows the Elements DAC to be used as a very high quality pre-amplifier. The digital volume control fitted to some DACs actually works by reducing resolution at the same time as attenuating the signal, making them a poor choice for high resolution audio. In addition to the analogue volume control, the Elements DAC featues infro-red remote control, a mute button and an on-board headphone amplifier so it can operate perfectly as both a DAC and a high quality pre-amplifier
Full LIPS implementation allows for easy system integration with other Leema products and home automation systems.
