Marantz are no stranger to quality, having designed and constructed some of the most prestigious and well-regarded hifi components in the world. The HD-DAC1 takes this reputation and embodies itself as a pure example of why the company are so critically acclaimed. This ultra-high quality digital-analogue converter/headphone amplifier forms a truly astonishing sound performance, due to its advanced Current Feedback amplification technology, found within Marantz' high-end Premium 11 series. 

The HD-DAC1 is an authoritatively powerful machine and wouldn't break a sweat driving audiophile high-impedance headphones of up to 600 ohms, with complete MODE ease. It's phenomenal quality and level of performance is due to the intricate and well-designed componentry found within the unit.. This component includes the three-level gain control, Marantz-specific HDAM modules, a high-current, audiophile standard DAC chip (CD4398) and premium quality fixed and variable RCA output connections.

Not only designed for headphones, however, the HD-DAC1 can be connected to your existing hifi system as a DAC or preamplifier. Connectivity is prolific and vast, as the HD-DAC1 features a number of optical and coaxial digital inputs, as well as a USB-B port to allow you to stream music directly from your PC or MAC. Apple devices are supported via the USB port found on the front of the unit, which has been optimised for these gadgets. 

The USB-B connection works in asynchronous mode to support not only 192 kHz / 24bits high resolution audio, but also to playback DSD 2.8mHz and 5.6mHz for the best possible performance with the most direct way to enjoy your music files exactly how they were intended to be. To further enhance the quality of computer audio, an extended isolation technique has been used around the USB-B input to eliminate any potential high frequency noise that may otherwise be generated by the computer being connected to the HD-DAC1

To top it off, jitter-removal technology and a Dual Clock system aids in forming an even more precise level of digital accuracy.
