New Version of a Bestselling DAC with Enhanced Circuitry
If you want to get the absolute best sound quality for music playback from your computer, Sonos, AppleTV, or even your CD player, try Peachtree Audio's DAC-iTx! If you are connecting any of these devices into your stereo with analog interconnects, what youíre hearing is the noisy, low output of your computerís sound card or the antiquated DAC inside your streamer or CD player. You are not hearing your music at its best. The DAC-iTx takes a pure digital signal from those devices and uses its own powerful ESS Sabre DAC to eliminate distortion and jitter to give you sound that is clean, clear and dynamic.
The new 'x' version of the bestselling DAC-iT now uses Peachtree Audio's premium Grand X1 USB converter circuitry that allows for bit-perfect playback of high resolution files, like 88.2, 176.4, and 192. Even MP3 files and streams from Spotify sound closer to the original recording due to the new high precision clocks and the asynchronous design. This upgraded circuitry provides a hefty boost in performance!
The DAC-iTx has all of the inputs you need for state-of-the-art sound from your computer or other devices. It has one asynchronous USB input with 24/192 capability, and coaxial and optical digital inputs with 24/192 capability, dependent upon the source.
High Performance ESS Sabre 9023 DAC
The 9023 Sabre chip from ESS Technology is a testament of trickle down technology. It delivers a lionís share of the performance of their top-of-the-line 9018 chip for a fraction of the price. Its patented Hyperstream jitter elimination is a key reason why DAC-iTx can make non-audiophile sources (AppleTV, computer) sound so good.
Galvanic Isolation for Clearer Sound
Electrically connected sources like your computerís USB or your streamers coax digital output can carry noise along with the digital signal. This noise masks fine detail in recordings and makes your music unfocused and hazy. Galvanic isolation moves this noise away from the digital signal so you end up with clearer more detailed sound.
Low Jitter Asynchronous USB
The USB input on DAC-iTx is the best sounding input for digital music. Asynchronous technology (vs. adaptive or synchronous on the original DAC-iT) allows the digital clock inside DAC-iTx to control the flow of data coming from your computer. This method of communication leads to less jitter (timing errors) for the Sabre DAC to deal with which results in clearer more defined sound.
Add Apple's AirPlay to Stream Your Music Wirelessly
With a DAC-iTx, an AppleTV, and your homeís WiFi network, you can get incredible wireless sound streaming from your favorite apps on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or on iTunes from your computer. Streaming Pandora, Internet radio, Spotify - just to name a few - has never been so easy! Just connect your Apple TV to the DACēiTx with an optical cable and you're ready to enjoy the music!
For added convenience, a remote control with direct input selection is included with the DAC-iTx.
