Overview: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II is an external
digital-to-analog convertor operating at 24-bits, 192kHz with true up-sampling.
The V-DAC II has extremely low noise, very low distortion, wide bandwidth, and
outstanding linearity. The V-DAC II digital-to-analog convertor with
asynchronous technology will make
substantial sonic improvements to almost any CD player, computer, or other
digital source. Simply connect the V-DAC II between your digital audio device (via
optical, coaxial, or USB) and your home stereo receiver (via analog stereo RCA).
Aluminum Construction: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II is constructed of brushed silver aluminum for a sleek look
& long-lasting durability.
24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II features a
built-in 24-bit/192kHz Burr-Brown (DSD1796) digital-to-analog convertor with an
asynchronous up-sampler (SRC4392). The V-DAC II
provides lower noise, better linearity, a ruler-flat frequency response,
excellent stereo separation, ultra-low distortion, and incredibly low jitter
compared to most integrated DACs found in today's CD/DVD players, game consoles,
computers, and other digital audio sources.
Asynchronous USB Port: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II external digital-to-analog
convertor features an asynchronous USB (type-B) port for the connection of your Windows PC or
Mac computer, so you can listen to your stored compressed music files with
high-quality sound. The asynchronous USB allows the audio data transfer to be
governed by the V-DAC II, as its master clock is effectively disconnected from
those within the potentially noisier environment of your PC or Mac. As a result,
the V-DAC II lets your compressed music files sound like a
high-quality CD player.
Note: The V-DAC II's USB (type-B) port supports Windows 98, ME, 2000,
XP, Vista, and 7; as well as MAC OS X.
Digital Inputs (optical/coaxial): The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II is
equipped with an optical & coaxial digital input for connecting your CD player,
DVD player, game system, or other digital audio device. The V-DAC II's surpasses
most digital-to-analog convertors found in your digital audio source device.
Note: If connecting to a television set's optical output,
please make sure that you are able to select PCM as the default optical out
audio format from your television's Audio menu. This DAC is not compatible
with multi-channel audio signals and will not work with televisions that do
not output PCM.
Analog Output: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II is equipped with a
gold-plated, stereo RCA output for connecting the device to your home stereo
Input Select: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II is fitted with a input
select toggle switch which lets you choose between the a digital coaxial or USB
LED Indicators: There are 2 LED lights to indicate operating status.
- Blue LED: There is a Blue Power LED indicates the unit is powered
on and ready for use.
- Green LED: The Green Status LED indicates the presence of a
External AC Power Adapter: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC II
operates off of standard household current (120V AC, 60Hz) using the supplied AC
power adapter. The external power adapter is
separate from the digital-analog-converter to further improve sound quality.
