TEAC's UD-H01 digital-to-analog converter proves that full-sized sound doesn't always require a full-sized component. Just plug your computer into this compact desktop DAC's USB input to enjoy big-time sound qualiy with the music on your PC. The TEAC works wonders with uncompressed high-res and lossless music files. And even Internet streaming audio sources sound more fleshed out — not just listenable but actually enjoyable. The UD-H01 performs much better than even high-quality sound cards, which are handicapped by having to operate in the noisy environment inside your computer. Plus, its classy, slimline form will look great in your home or office.
Ready for high-res music
Versatile digital music handling comes courtesy of dual built-in Burr-Brown DACs that support high-resolution sampling rates and bit depths up to 192kHz/32-bits. The UD-H01's asynchronous USB input allows the DAC to control the timing clock signal instead of your computer, reducing jitter to the lowest levels possible for smoother, more detailed sound. The TEAC website has all the free USB driver downloads you'll need for computer playback available online. The UD-H01 also takes advantage of a beefy toroidal transformer-based power supply and dual-mono circuit design throughout for powerful sound, optimum channel separation, and clear stereo imaging.
The ins and outs
The TEAC UD-H01 sports multiple inputs and outputs to handle your audio system's needs.
This DAC features three inputs: the aforementioned USB, plus two digital inputs (1 coax, 1 optical) for connecting a CD/DVD player, game console, or other audio device with a digital output. You also get both unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR audio output connectors to hook up a pair of powered speakers or an external amplifier. Or, keep your listening immersive and private by plugging in to the headphone output on the front panel.
