Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
USB Audio DAC: The TEAC UD-H01 features coaxial and optical S/P DIF
digital audio inputs, as well as a USB port to allow use as a high-quality D/A
converter. These digital inputs connect to a premium-quality Burr Brown PCM1795 dual DAC with
up to 192kHz/32-bit audio resolution for the highest-quality sources. The device
can receive data asynchronously meaning the timing signal is included reducing
jitter to the absolute lowest level. Input sources can even be up-converted to
higher sampling rates for smoother audio quality. Output terminals include
gold-plated RCA connectors, line-level output and XLR balanced output terminals
for connection to a full-fledged high-end operation amplifier.
Dual Monaural Configuration with Independent Left/Right DACs: The TEAC
UD-H01 incorporates two 32-bit/192kHz Burr Brown D/A converters (PCM1795); one for each channel. The
dual-monaural configuration eliminates interference between the channels for
maximum performance from the D/A converters. A shunt-regulator circuit supplies
the current to the D/A converters in order to eliminate ground noise generated
by fluctuations in the supply voltage
192kHz Up-Conversion: All digital input signals are converted to
192kHz via non-integral up-sampling, dramatically reducing jitter and allowing
consistent D/A conversion based on the high-precision internal clock. ASRC (Asynchronous
Sampling Rate Converter) is used to produce a natural, 192kHz high-sampling rate digital audio
Supported Formats: The TEAC UD-H01 is the perfect DAC for playback of
high-resolution computer formats like FLAC, WAV, and Apple Lossless. Its three
digital inputs (optical/coaxial/USB) support sampling rates of 32, 44.1, 48,
88.2, 96, 176.4, and 19kHz. 16- and 24-bit rates are supported. There are six
front-panel LEDs (44.1/48/88.2/96/176.4/192) to indicate which sampling
frequency is being input.
USB Type-B Port for Computer Audio Streaming: The TEAC UD-H01 features
a USB (type-B) port for connecting your Windows PC or Mac computer. The
UD-H01 digitally transfers audio source material stored on your computer to your
connected amplifier at up to 24-bit/192kHz. The UD-H01 also supports USB asynchronous
mode, which uses its precise internal clock to control timing and eliminate
jitter issues. This allows optimal playback of high-resolution digital audio
files from playlists/libraries in your iTunes, Windows Media Player, or similar
playback programs on your computer. This unit does not offer control over your
computer's music files.
Note: Before using the UD-H01 with your computer, you
will need to download and install
the dedicate TEAC driver on your Windows PC or MAC. Supported operating
systems included Windows (XP*/Vista/7/8) and Mac OS X (Snow
Leopard/Lion/Mountain Lion). *Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is not
Optical & Coaxial Digital Inputs: The TEAC UD-H01 is fitted with
optical (toslink) and coaxial (RCA) digital inputs for connection of other
digital audio sources like your CD, DVD, or Blu-ray player. These digital inputs
will accept two channel linear PCM (not Dolby Digital/DTS).
Independent Balanced & Unbalanced Outputs: For output to powered
speakers or an amplifier, a Muse 8920 dual-operation line amplifier terminates
to gold-plated stereo RCA and balanced XLR outputs. The output circuit is
completely independent in the left and right sides for optimum channel
separation and clear stereo imaging.
Stereo Headphone Amp: The same high-quality operational amplifier used
for line output is used for headphone amplifier output. A dedicated high-quality
aluminum knob controls the headphone volume. This allows users to enjoy a
high-sampling-rated digital audio in spaces with neighbors close by, or other
situations where speaker playback might disturb others. The unit is fitted with
a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack.
High-Performance Power Supply: The UD-H01 uses a high-capacity
toroidal-core power supply transformer capable of providing a stable current
with high efficiency. This minimizes flux leakage and eliminates noise generated
by electromagnetic induction.
