The Total DAC is a French made digital to analogue converter which is said to use only components that have been selected by rigorous listening tests as well as “specific digital technologies” and “components rarely used in other high end DACs due to their high cost”.

The standout feature of the Total DAC is the inclusion of an integrated digital crossover allowing for separation of bass, midrange and treble frequencies.

There are several options in the Total DAC range and these include the Reference A1 DAC, the Reference D1 DAC and then the Reference D2 and D3 which include the two and three way crossovers. The Total DACs is said to be very analogue in its reproduction of sources.

The various DACs and crossovers are available boxed and ready to go or as completed “electronic boards”

We hope to be able to review the Total DAC very soon.
