We built the 851D using all of our hi-fi experience and the highest grade of components throughout to ensure it delivers the best sound in its class. You can connect up virtually any source and then let the 851D bring it to life. All data is put through our 2nd generation Adaptive Time Filtering that upsamples everything to 24bit/384kHz hi-res quality, no matter the original source. As a result, jitter is almost completely absent, and your music sounds amazing. Read more on our proprietary ATF upsampling technology here.
The upsampled music then passes through Twin Analog Devices DACs (very high-end digital to analogue converters) which are implemented in a dual differential configuration meaning each channel has its own DAC to process data. The result is lifelike stereo imaging where instruments can be heard in specific parts of your room with uncanny accuracy.
All of these audiophile internals are powered by a large toroidal transformer for the best delivery of a high quality and consistent signal, low noise and buzz levels, and huge power reserves.
