The AMC model DAC8 was designed to meet professional quality standards for Digital to Analog signal conversion.

The highest grade of components are used throughout with critical components selected for their sonic performance, including double sided, through hole plated, printed circuit board.

It provides 4 selectable S/PDIF inputs, 3 coaxial and one fiber optic. The DAC8 can automatically lock to either 32 KHz, 44.1 KHz or 48 KHz digital sampling rates for use with laser disc players, CD's or DAT machines.

The unit uses the latest generation of bit stream continuous calibration ultra-linear Digital to Analog Converter, with inherently low jitter.

For those users with digital recording capabilities, the DAC8 has a digital output for connection to DAT, MD or DCC type machines, thus maintaining the ultimate in recording quality.

If provides an accurately calibrated output level in accordance with the EIA (Electronic Industries Association) recommended standard of 2 volts. This output level provides the best possible performance particularly for home theater users.

The fiber optic input provides electrical isolation from Laser Disc players, thereby avoiding conducted interference from Video sources into the Audio chain.

The superior performance of the DAC8 will provide not only improved technical specifications to your system, it will also significantly upgrade its sonic qualities.
