Buffalo, NY — Bluebird Music, distributor of high-performance audio products since 2000, is pleased to announce the availability of the new DAC204 from Switzerland’s Weiss Engineering.
The DAC204 is the most versatile and affordable USB DAC offered by Weiss. It can be permanently connected to multiple digital units and the user can easily switch between them with the front-mounted Input Selector switch.
The DAC204 has three digital inputs; USB, Toslink and S/PDIF and two analog outputs; balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA. It accepts all standard sampling frequencies from PCM 44.1kHz up to 384 kHz plus DSD 64x and 128x, and it can convert DSD to PCM. It employs no less than four oversampling sigma-delta D/A converters per channel, operated in parallel for enhanced signal-to-noise performance. Several signal reclocking schemes are combined for a high jitter attenuation.
An external power supply is included with the unit. All sensitive voltages have their own linear regulators. The result is an analog output free of “digital noise” and channel crosstalk. The DAC204 delivers a clean, neutral presentation with a high degree of musical integrity and excellent detail and separation of instruments.
The DAC204 is housed in a simple black chassis with a silver faceplate and delivers outstanding sonic performance for the money.
US retail price is $2,895, ($3,795 Canadian), and the DAC204 is now shipping in USA and Canada.
Dimensions are 6.5” deep, by 4.2” wide by 3.8” tall. Features found on Weiss’ DAC501 and DAC 502 such as DSP, remote control and headphone output are not offered on the DAC204 nor is the DAC204 networkable / roon ready.
