Rega DAC DACs

DAC

The Rega DAC is a 16/20/24-bit at 32kHz to 192kHz digital to analogue converter incorporating an enhanced version of the Rega designed circuit. Developed to be simple to set up and use, the Rega DAC is designed to optimise performance from any two channel PCM digital audio source such as a CD player PC or streaming device.

With the PC/Laptop and MAC now widely accepted as creditable mediums for storing and streaming music. The use of high quality lossless files such as WAV, FLAC and ALAC offer performance through the DAC equal to and in some cases better than red book CD.

Housed in a custom aluminium and steel case and boasting a pair of Wolfson DAC IC's, 5 user selectable digital filters, two isolated Co-axial inputs, two Toslink SPDIF inputs and an isolated USB input. The Rega DAC is designed and engineered to perform way above its class.

I love this dac. Very smooth highs and separation is great. Just the right blend of detail. It has that special quality to pull you in. Very analogue sounding. Great value. I'd have to spend at least double to get better results.

Only thing would be nice is a remote. O and why does our components have to have little lights! That's a statement to all companies.

I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED REGA CD PLAYERS, HAVING OWNER THE JUPITER AND THE SATURN. THIS DAC, RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX IS SUPERIOR TO THE SATURN. GIVEN TIME TO BREAK IN IT EXCEEDS ANYTHING THAT I AM WILLING TO PURCHASE. MY BUDGET FOR A DAC WAS UP TO $2K. I AM BREAKING IT IN ON A HIGHEND UNIVERSAL PLAYER. MY GOAL IS TO GET TO A SERVER BASED SYSTEM AND THIS DAC WILL BE THE CENTER PIECE OF THAT SYSTEM. AT A RETAIL OF $995 IT OUTPERFORMED MANY DACS THAT I TRIED THAT WERE MUCH MORE COSTLY. IT WAS TO MY EARS DEAD EVEN WITH THE NAIM DAC. IT IS WELL BUILT AND EASY TO PLACE IN MY SETUP. I HAVE NOT AUDITIONED THE FILTER SYSTEM. STICKING WITH THE MANUAL SUGGESTED SETTING OF #1. WORKS FOR ME. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO FIND A REGA DEALER IN YOUR AREA, YOU SHOULD GIVE IT AN AUDITION. I AM FORTUNATE TO HAVE SUCH A DEALER IN THE AREA. AT THIS PRICE YOU WILL BE PLEASED AT HOW SMART YOU ARE.

This is one great sounding DAC! Reasonably priced considering its performance. It has 192khz input ability and some of the smoothest and highest resolution sound that I have heard. I get great bass response and can listen all day without fatigue. It's a very nicely built unit too with some well thought out features. The digital filters really allow it to be tuned precisely to your system and the sources.
