Weiss Helios Reference DAC
Weiss Helios DAC features a no-compromise design that allows you to hear the same representation of the music that mastering engineers hear in the studio.
To achieve its exceptional performance, Helios uses an eight-channel 32-bit D/A converter chip, with four paralleled conversion channels per audio channel. All analog processing is done with Weiss’s discrete operational amplifier modules, the Weiss OBP2-BP — arguably the best audio operational amplifier currently available.
For ultra-stable clocking of the D/A converter, Helios also uses and internal high-precision / low jitter clock generator.
More than just a DAC, Helios also functions as a preamp and UPnP/Roon streamer and includes the same professional-grade DSP algorithms that were used to mix and master the original recordings. An optional headphones adapter turns Helios into the ultimate headphone amp/DAC.
The new Helios delivers another breathtaking leap forward in DAC technology. Audition it at your local Weiss dealer and prepare to be astounded.
