Lake People DAC RS 06
2-ch Highest Quality Digital-Analog Converter
The REFERENCE SERIES from Lake People covers absolutely high-level audio products with outstanding features, best technical data and perfect craftsmanship.
LAKE PEOPLE DAC RS 06 is a top-range D/A converter, distinguished by its resampling unit, its 32-bit double mono converters and very particular analog output stages. By means of their specially designed, variable low-noise and low-distortion circuitry, the DAC RS 06 fulfils even highest demands Taken from one of four possible inputs, the digital signal is forwarded to the receiver/resampling module.
When the resampling is activated all incoming data is normalized to 96 kHz. This is the optimim sample rate for the following converters. The quality of the resampled signal is directly dependent from its clock source. Therefore a special low-jitter oscillator with a phase jitter < 1 pS = Picosecond is installed which is fed from its own low noise power supply build with discrete components. According to the double-mono architecture two 32 bit D/A converters per channel are used inside DAC RS 06 to achieve higher linearity and lower noise.
An incoming 16, 20 or 24 bit signal is expanded in a 32 bit signal inside the converters. Without careful consideration of the analog output stages it wouldn't have been possible to make the outstanding performance of the top-notch converter available at the analog outputs.
In case of DAC RS 06, the converter is followed by an amplifier specially designed for this purpose, with a topology similar to an instrumentation amplifier. It distinguishes itself by a wide dynamic range, minimum distortion and high flexibility with regard to the achievable output level. From the D/A converters to the rear outputs the signal remains completely balanced.
