Being powered from battery the DAC will be freed from the possibility of dirty mains electricity interfering with the sound quality in the vital DAC section. This is nothing new for the company as they previously produced the DAC 040 (Pictured) which was battery powered.
Battery power will be used only in the DAC section of the 040BD whilst other sections of the DAC will be powered by the mains.
The 040BD will use a non-oversampling DAC with 12AU7 output valves.
Price is $12 000
