Audeze - Deckard - DAC and Headphone Amplifier
The pure class-A circuitry drives any headphone to best effect.
A powerhouse of a headphone amplifier combined with a high-performance DAC, the Deckard drives any headphone with power to spare. The DAC has impressive specs and handles 16 to 32-bits and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz. There is a volume control and front-panel switches to choose gain and input so you can also use the Deckard as a great line-level preamp. The sound is exciting and dynamic with beautifully rendered tonal colours that make music come alive.
The internal DAC has impressive specifications that play 16 to 32-bit audio and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz on Mac OS 10.6.4 and above. Windows computers are system limited to 192kHz and 24-bits. The front-panel gain switch chooses between three gain settings and we recommend starting at the uppermost position labelled Mid with Audeze headphones; other brands may require changing the gain.
The headphone output is a standard quarter-inch stereo jack with RCA line-level analog inputs and outputs.
Audeze’s advanced manufacturing process combined with the latest materials and technology produces extremely accurate and incredible sounding headphones. The LCD Collection, handcrafted in the USA, delivers the listener into a new world of music, full of rich detail, bass clarity and overall accuracy.
