Alchemist TS-D-1


The New Alchemist TS-D-1, 24 Bit 96kHz Compatible DAC will support all sampling rates up to and including the very latest DVD standard of 96kHz.

Therefore making it the obvious affordable upgrade for the latest generation of CD/DCC/DAT/Mini Disc and DVD machines, bringing true audiophile status to otherwise mediocre performers.

It offers the choice of either Coaxial or Optical input connection, along with a digital record output to allow digital recording onto Mini Disc, CDR or DAT type machines.

The TS-D-1 is based around the latest surface mount microchips from Crystal and Burr Brown making it the most up to date DAC available today. These coupled with many proprietary filtering enhancements also make it perform beyond its diminutive size.

The TS-D-1 is just the beginning of an exciting new range of products that will include a MM/MC phono stage, remote controlled preamplifier and power amplifiers amongst others, all utilizing the extrusion that gives them their unique identity.
