Overview: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC is an external
digital-to-analog convertor operating at 24-bits, 192kHz with true up-sampling.
The V-DAC has extremely low noise, very low distortion, wide bandwidth, and
outstanding linearity. The V-DAC digital-to-analog convertor will make
substantial sonic improvements to almost any CD player, computer, or other
digital source. Simply connect the V-DAC between your digital audio device (via
optical, coaxial, or USB) and your home stereo receiver (via analog stereo RCA).
24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC features a
built-in 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog convertor with up-sampling. The V-DAC
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.
Digital Inputs (optical/coaxial): The Musical Fidelity V-DAC is
equipped with a optical and coaxial digital input for connecting your CD player,
DVD player, game system, or other digital audio device. The V-DAC's surpasses
most digital-to-analog convertors found in your digital audio source device.
USB Port: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC external digital-to-analog
convertor features a 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 V-DAC lets your compressed music files sound like a
high-quality CD player.
Note: The V-DAC's USB (type-B) port supports Windows 98, ME, 2000,
XP, Vista, and 7; as well as MAC OS X.
Analog Output: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC is equipped with a
gold-plated, stereo RCA output for connecting the device to your home stereo
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
Power Requirements: The Musical Fidelity V-DAC operates off of standard household current (120V AC, 60Hz) using
the supplied AC power adapter (12V DC, 500mA). The external power adapter is
separate from the digital-analog-converter to further improve sound quality.
