Canor DAC 2.10
D/A converter with tube-based output
CANOR DAC 2.10 uses the dual mono configuration of the ES9038Q2M digital-to-analogue converters from ESS Sabre, which ensure high sound quality.
01 Dual mono configuration of digital to analogue converters from ESS Sabre
02 The consistently symmetrical signal path
03 The output part is analogue (tube-based)
Seven digital converter filters for PCM format and one proprietary for MQA format – so the listeners can adjust the sound exactly to their liking
The signal from the digital inputs is processed by a powerful multi-core XMOS microcontroller with an advanced Multi-Core RISC architecture
To remove mechanical hum, the transformer core is vacuum impregnated, and the entire transformer is encapsulated in a special anti-vibration compound. In addition, the massive, welded cover in which the transformer is located creates effective electromagnetic shielding and contributes significantly to the excellent signal-to-hum distance.
- Thanks to used converters, it is possible to play files in PCM formats up to a sampling frequency of 768 kHz and for DSD format up to Native DSD512 via the USB input, thus covering most digital files that you can normally play, buy or stream.
- It uses the dual mono configuration of the ES9038Q2M digital-to-analogue converters from ESS Sabre, which ensure high sound quality.
- The analogue output is a buffer, which is solved by a high-quality electronic connection
- Dual converter wiring uses separate signal paths for the left and right channels.there are seven digital converter filters for PCM format and one proprietary for MQA format, which is set automatically during MQA playback.
- The last (eighth) item in the digital filter menu “Oversampling Bypass” can be selected. But it’s not a digital filter, as it’s turning off digital filtering for the ability to compare audio without filtering…
- The signal from the digital inputs is processed by a powerful multi-core XMOS microcontroller with an advanced Multi-Core RISC architecture.
