Alchemist Forseti APD34A
Digital to Analogue Converter
Contrary to popular thought, the zeros and ones that make up a digital signal are not permanently etched into the fabric of the universe. To convert them into an accurate analogue signal takes a great deal of technology and listening, in equal measures. Just the job for Alchemist, then.
The Forseti DAC uses dual 24 bit processors per channel, providing 24 bit resolution on balanced and unbalanced output.
There is low jitter clock recovery and multiple re-synchronisation to ensure accurate processing.
There are also 9 separate regulated power supplies for each DAC section. Where possible, discrete components are used.
Functions include phase inversion, de-emphasis and lock; inputs include one balanced and two unbalanced. There is also a remote motorised volume control.
