Totaldac’s DAC product line:

d1-core: The entry level but still with Totaldac sound and perfect tonal balance. Universal 3V RCA and 6V XLR outputs, and like all other DACs with volume control.

d1-single-mk2: The first released DAC. 3V RCA outputs, with high current class A output stage and headphone output.

d1-tube-mk2: The only DAC with tube output stage. Based on two R2R ladders per channel. 1.4V RCA outputs.

d1-six: Based on 3 R2R ladders per channel, with 2.5V RCA and 5V XLR outputs. High current class A output stage with headphone output.

d1-seven: Based on 3 R2R ladders per channel, 3.2V RCA and 6.4V XLR outputs. Lots of optimisations compared to d1-six for the 7th anniversary of Totaldac.

d1-direct: 1.6V RCA outputs direct from 3 R2R ladders thank to new filtering and offset circuitry. Based on d1-seven with d1-twelve direct output, not so versatile but so transparent sounding.

d1-twelve-mk2: Made of 3 boxes: one digital front end and 2 DAC monoblocs. 6 R2R ladders per channel. 1.6V RCA output direct from R2R ladders as well as 3.2V RCA (6.4V XLR) buffered output.

d3-core: This is the 3-way active crossover based on the d1-core DAC. A 2-way active crossover is also available, called d2-core.

Totaldac’s products with digital outputs:

d1-digital reclocker: Rebuilds all 4 inputs into a coax and AES-EBU output with less jitter. Can also apply volume control and convert DSD to pcm 176/24 if required.

streamer board: A computer board with ethernet input which can be mounted in a DACs or reclocker. Compatible with RoonReady, UPNP/DLNA, Airplay, NAA.

d1-streamer: It is the reclocker also equipped with the streamer board and a GIGAFILTER. So it is a streamer with USB, coax and AES-EBU outputs.

d1-player: Stores your music files and runs Roon core or a UPNP edia-server.

Network output to a RoonReady device or a UPNP streamer.

Analogue product line:

d1-driver: Connected between a DAC and the amplifier to perfectly drive the amplifier. Like a high end preamplifier but relying on the DAC volume control.

AMP-1: The Totaldac amplifier. Tube qualities and able to drive 1ohm speakers.
