Weiss DAC1 MKII-FW – No Longer Available
The Firewire interface allows to connect the DAC1-MK2 to PC or MAC computers. The features of the Firewire interface are the same as those of the INT202 interface as shown here.
There are three digital inputs on XLR connectors, and one on Toslink (optical). The accepted sampling frequencies are 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz. AES/EBU signals on a single connector are used. Each XLR input is actively routed to a corresponding XLR digital output, allowing monitoring at multiple stages in a digital studio setup.
Several signal reclocking schemes are combined for extremely high jitter attenuation, making the DAC1 virtually immune to jitter over a very wide bandwidth.
The correlation technique (using two converters per channel) which was already successfully employed in the ADC1 gives the DAC1 an edge over other D/A converters with equal wordlength and sampling rate specifications, resulting in improved SNR and THD.
The discrete Class A outputs have a virtually zero Ohm output impedance, but still can drive large loads without stability problems. Output levels can be set between -infinity and +27dBu. The outputs are symmetrical, but do not have any sound degrading servo mechanisms built in. For asymmetrical operation only one leg of the XLR connector (plus ground) is used.
By hooking up an analog potentiometer or fader to the remote connector, the output level can be remote controlled. This level control happens in the digital domain. The input source selection can also be remote controlled.
