The Longdog Audio VDt1 DAC is a £3650 Digital to Analogue Converter that has been designed by well known valve MP_54921_300guru Nick Goreham and so expectations were high when Hifi Pig reviewer Jerry plugged it into his system for a proper evaluation.

Three regulated power supplies are provided;- for the digital board main supply, the output stage valve heater supply, and a valve-regulated high voltage supply using MOSFETs and an EF86 pentode valve.

Digital processing is handled by an Asahi Kasei AK4396 DAC chip, chosen by Nick Gorham as the best sounding device for the application.”
