It’s here! Absolute Perfection

The new Absolute Hyperstream DAC is available!

Connecting us with the musical event.

The Absolute DAC represents the state of the art in converters technology, thanks to its proprietary circuitry and ingenious combination of the best selected electronic and mechanical components.

It will breathe new life into your audio files libraries! The sound is vast, superlatively confident; the sense of space and dynamic contrast are beyond imagination, reaching a superb sonic experience. The Absolute is artefact free, its linear circuit does not impart audio characteristics of its own.

  • The device is fully balanced throughout – a topology that helps to minimize the noise floor to vanishingly low levels (~-130 to -140dB)
  • The Absolute can operate in single-ended and balanced modes without loss of signal either way.
  • Ultra-linear circuitry and hand-selected and matched-to-circuit components are used throughout.
  • Contemporary, cutting edge technology applied in the Absolute design choose the latest, highest performing digital-to-analogue conversion technology.
  • Proprietary circuit design optimizes the performance of the state-of-the art DAC chip and clocks – oscillators used. Three ultra-low jitter clocks used to support sonic precision and sound stability. Proprietary, ultra-low noise, dual-quattro voltage parallel analogue amplification stages implemented in the Absolute DAC. This protects against noise, hum, and signal degradation. Hence, signal accuracy is unparalleled! At the same time, with ample energy reserves and strikingly improved SNR ratio, stunning dynamics are achieved!
  • The superlatively stable output stage with vast power reserves is therefore more than capable of driving any commercially available pre/power amplifier combo, as well as longer cables, both in single-ended and balanced operating modes.
  • The Absolute main power banks, both the boards and the components, are engineered in order to ensure ultra-high operating stability and precision, thereby negating fluctuations to subsequent stages.
  • Proprietary power supply design provides independent power lines to each stage that bypass the main power boards and ensure freedom from internal noise interference.
  • The massive, hand-milled aluminium chassis enhances mechanical stability and provides shielding from airborne vibration. The base alone has more than 1450 cubic cm of solid aluminum.
  • There are no signal-carrying wire inside the Absolute.
  • A choice of digital filters allows the user to optimize reproduction or, more simply, to match one’s personal taste.
