The Pre₂ DAC separates the pre amp into its own chassis and provides a dedicated power supply which means the pre amp can resolve more detail. Complete with a built-in DAC, the pre amp is compatible with a very wide range of sources such as CD players, streamers or your TV digital audio out.

Advanced Technology

The Pre₂ DAC delivers surprising audio performance and value because it is based on the advanced preamplifier circuitry from the DAC XP Signature; benefitting from a ‘trickle down’ of our most advanced technology.

Pre Amplifier

The Pre₂ DAC offers a sonic step up in performance from our integrated amplifiers; achieved with its own power supply. The internal power supply provides isolation from the demands of other system elements, making available an additional level of dynamics and resolution.

Integrated DAC

The Pre₂ DAC features a high performance 24/192 DAC bringing optical and coaxial inputs and a driverless USB connection for plug and play connectivity to a PC or Laptop. This DAC can be further upgraded to ‘Qx’ specification bringing in upsampling DAC design from the DAC XP Signature.

Essential Connectivity

Six analogue inputs, a high quality headphone amplifier, Zone 2 and pre amplifier output give the Pre₂ DAC flexibility for connecting a wide variety of audio devices. There is also a PSX-R port on the Pre₂ DAC allowing connectivity of the instant upgrade off-board power-supply.

Advanced Setup

The microprocessor controlled operating system in the Pre₂ DAC allows extensive programming of many functions within the unit. Input naming, differing display readouts and input volume matching across all sources are just some of the possibilities.
