Da Vinci 384K/32bit DAC from Light Harmonic
These young Californian guys are obviously big Star Wars fans!
This is certainly the most striking looking DAC on OUR planet...
And with specs to match, up there with Antelope that we have talked about before, they will certainly make an impact.
Most amazing part is certainly their asynchronous USB input and processing, with its own separate clock.
Obviously, there is no way to tell on a show if this SOUNDS better than another DAC, but on a theoretical level, looking at the spec sheet, one can assume this has been thoroughly thought through.
It is certainly future proof, for a while at least. One good thing is that they point you on their website to a few places from where you can actually down load files that will take advantage on their specs, and iTrax is one of them...
