Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) - Simultaneous Analogue and Digital Output


Our DAC12AU is designed to convert either Coaxial or Optical signals from a digital signal to analogue stereo audio. The DAC12AU also includes a digital converter which converts Optical audio in to a Coaxial digital output. This provides the perfect cost effective solution when connecting the digital audio output from a TV display to an analogue input on an amplifier. The DAC12AU utilises 192kHz sample rates for enhanced sound reproduction.
