Zdac v. 2
Zdac by Parasound showcased at Custom Home Hi-Fi for Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point
The Zdac v.2 sounds natural and less "digital" than more expensive DACs thanks to our asynchronous sample rate converter. A precise re-clocking system eliminates bitstream-contaminating jitter that's picked up along the digital signal chain. Unlike many other DACs, the Zdac v.2 eliminates jitter on all of its inputs (not only the USB input).
