T+A DAC200 DAC / Preamplifier
The DAC 200 is a DAC and Preamplifier for the all new 200 Series.
As with all of the 200 series components the DAC 200 is housed in a 3/4 width box and is visually more compact in the flesh than most people expect it to be.
Build quality is superb, solid, stylish and functional the DAC 200 offers superb performance, along with a plethora of features and configuration options to ensure it can perform to the best of its abilities
With DSD 1024 playback (via USB) and complete galvanic separation are just two highlights which underline the potential of the DAC 200. The DAC 200 effortlessly converts a large number of digital formats into highly transparent, natural-sounding analogue signals, and passes them on via the integral headphone or analogue outputs.
The DAC 200 uses a true 1 bit converter which processes DSD files in their native form, without any unnecessary conversions or processes to detract from the performance. The PCM converter uses eight 32 bit burr-brown converters which helps to reduce noise, improve dynamics and linearity, performance can be further fine tuned with the addition of 6 filters (FIR, Bezier and NOS)
In terms of inputs we have the following connectivity
USB-B with DSD 1024 playback and complete galvanic isolation
AES/EBU x 1 and BNC x 1
SPDIF RCA x 2 and Toslink Optical x 2
There is 1 analogue RCA input as well.
There is a set of analogue outputs on both RCA and XLR
One very useful option is the addition of an HDMI board with 2 inputs and 1 output with ARC (audio return channel) compatibility as well.
If your system is in the same room as your TV you can connect 2 video sources to the DAC200 and connect to your TV. If your TV has ARC you can send the audio from the television back to the DAC 200 you can route the sound from onboard apps like Netflix and Disney+ through the system without any effort, the HDMI board is £380.00, my demo unit has the HDMI board fitted and it works perfectly and is very intuitive as well.
