Dac8-Silver-lores

RGDAC8

Clearly, a USB DAC has no need to pretend it is trying to be “the world’s most advanced DAC, ever”! But when it presents as a hi-res USB DAC, it does show a determination to maintain digital accuracy, most particularly when it is an Asynchronous DAC.

The sonics of REDGUM CDP/DAC designs have long been trusted, remarkably, because of their asynchronous-ness. And that history began in 1997, decades before that term became widely used!

Clearly, a USB DAC has no need to pretend it is trying to be “the world’s most advanced DAC, ever”! But when it presents as a hi-res USB DAC, it does show a determination to maintain digital accuracy, most particularly when it is an Asynchronous DAC.

The sonics of REDGUM CDP/DAC designs have long been trusted, remarkably, because of their asynchronous-ness. And that history began in 1997, decades before that term became widely used!

In brief, REDGUM’s RGDAC2 & RGDAC5 have been asynchronous from their first design as their digital stream was (and remains) fully reclocked and reshaped in a separate, additional chip. This additional chip also provides the buffer for the storage of the data stream in real time, thus removing the problem of jitter.

A USB input has been a feature of REDGUM DAC and CD Player models for some years now, so to build on that history, the next product could only bring all these features together. And then some!

We proudly present the RGDAC8 as our new Multi-format Asynchronous Hi-res USB DAC.
