Roksan K3 DAC

Innovative DAC with Wireless streaming option
Availability: In stock
Manufacturer: Roksan

The K3 DAC is Roksan's first stand alone digital-analogue converter. Joining the ranks of the K3 family alongside the K3 Integrated Amplifier and K3 CD Player, the K3 DAC is another success story.

Within the sturdy casework of the K3 DAC, there is some serious technology employed. At its heart is a very high-quality DSD1794A DAC chip from Texas Instruments. This chip handles both PCM (up to 24-bit / 192kHz) and DSD (up to DSD 128) data streams in a superior manner, utilising the advanced DAC architecture to secure excellent dynamic performance and improved tolerance to clock jitter. This allows for a consistent, high performance across the myriad of input options at your disposal, including 1 x AES3/SPDIF (XLR), 1 x Optical, 1 x Coaxial RCA and 2 x USB (Type B).

The K3 DAC is also the first product to use Roksan Audio’s new wireless technology, K-LINK. K-LINK allows for uninterrupted CD-quality wireless streaming from a digital or analogue dongle at up to 150m* range. The K3 DAC is supplied with the digital USB dongle for wireless streaming from a Laptop or PC, while the optional analogue dongle allows for wireless streaming from a traditional Line-level hi-fi source. 

The analogue output filtering has been optimised to deliver a sonic performance worthy of the high standards the K3 Series is kept to. Combining an almost analogue smoothness with exceptional detail, the K3 DAC is a fine example of how engaging digital audio formats can be. By utilising many of the same internal components as both the K3 CD Player and the Integrated Amplifier, you can guarantee a truly audiophile performance whether incorporating the K3 DAC into a dedicated K3 system or any other hi-fi set-up. The delivery will ensure retrieval of micro-detail, spacious soundstaging and a powerful, enticing sound.

The K3 DAC is available in the same three finishes as other K3 Series products; Anthracite, Charcoal and Opium. Control other inputs can be achieved via the front panel and through the supplied R7 System Remote, which also works with the K3 CD Player and K3 Integrated Amplifier.
