With its AES and XLR outputs and decoding capability of PCM 384K & DSD256, the NuPrime DAC-9 is a reference-class DAC designed for studio professionals. With four digital and one analog stereo inputs, the DAC-9 is a full-featured DAC and preamp ideally suited for high-end systems.



Highly Accurate CD Playback

  • A powerful ARM chip LPC2103F CD reads, writes and controls error correction

  • Philips SAA7824HL high-end laser reads/writes head control and decodes chips

  • Supports CD-DA CD-R, CD-RW

  • Algorithm reduces digital interference and jitter

A Reference Class Preamp

  • •Advanced, FPGA-implemented, switched-resistor ladder network for controlling volume with a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting

  • Individually adjustable volume on each input for precise source-level matching

  • •Volume adjustments in 99 precise 0.5dB increments. Full microprocessor control with memory retention


Sampling Rate Converter

  • The sampling rate of any digital inputs, including CD playback, can be converted up or down between PCM and DSD, from 44.1kHz to 768kHz  or DSD64 to DSD512

  • The conversion is achieved by up-sampling to mega hertz before down converting to the targeted sampling rate with ultra-low jitter and distortion

Headphone Amp

  • High performance op-amp headphone amp

  Compatible OS
