DEMIAN MARTIN LIMITED EDITION
The idiom “The devil is in the details.” summarised Demian Martin’s approach to tackling this seemingly impossible goal. Through more than two decades of designing high-end audio products, Demian has insights into a vast library of parts and circuit enhancement techniques. He combed through all the critical audio signal paths in the DAC-10H circuit and painstakingly made the adjustment and parts replacement.
The result is that DAC-10HSE was able to retain and improve upon its signature detail presentation, dynamic, and control while acquiring a hint of warmth, reaching perfection.
A REFERENCE CLASS PREAMP
To meet the requirements of customers who want to eliminate extra components in their system, a high-end preamp capable of driving the power amplifier directly is an essential part of the design. The DAC-10HSE includes features borrowed from the NuPrime Reference class P-20 preamp:
- Advanced, thin-film switched-resistor ladder network for controlling volume, i.e., a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting.
- Individually adjustable volume on each input for precise source level matching.
- Volume adjustment in 99 precise, 0.5dB increments.
As the heart of an audio system, the DAC-10HSE supports an extensive number of inputs and formats. Utilizing the world’s best performing 32-bit audio DAC is only a first step for designing the ultimate DAC. When state-of-the-art solutions are readily available to all vendors, the experience and proprietary know-how in designing many Editor’s Choice and Product of The Year award-winning products elevate the NuPrime DAC-10HSE above the competition.
