Leema - Elements - DAC/Preamplifier

by Leema
$3,650.00

Digital to analogue conversion is a discipline that, on the face of it, looks to be a simple number crunching exercise. Yet, as in all things audio, the devil is in the detail. Chief among the gremlins is time, which if not precisely regulated, causes temporal distortion (jitter) in the digital signal and ultimately manifests itself as actual noise and distortion in the resulting musical signal.

Uniquely, Leema’s design team have been involved with digital audio in both music recording studios and movie sound stages, since its commercial introduction in the early 1980s. This gives them a wealth of experience when designing DACs for audiophile use, technically at the very limit of what is achievable but most importantly, warm, detailed, musical and natural.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz to 20kHz (+/- 0.25dB)
  • Distortion: better than 0.001% (@ 1kHz)
  • Crosstalk: better than -95dB (@ 20kHz)
  • THD: better than 0.005% (@ 0dBFs)
  • Jitter: less than 50ps (@ 1kHz)
  • Un-balanced (RCA) Outputs: 1
  • Balanced (XLR) Outputs: 1
  • Pre-Inputs (un-balanced RCA): 1
  • MP3 Inputs (Front Panel 3.5mm jack): 1

  • Headphone Outputs (3.5mm jack): 1
  • Output levels in fixed gain mode (0dB @ 1kHz): unbalanced = 2.1v rms, balanced = 4.2v rms
  • DAC: Quattro 24bit/192kHz with multiple CS 4351
  • Mute Button: Yes
  • LIPS® system: Master or Slave
  • Dimensions: 220*340*88mm
