Our philosophy

Our products share the same basic philosophy, but with different implementations. All the units meet different budgets so it is necessary to select all the components inside the units that meet both our philosophy and the budget. The audio quality is the most important parameter in this design process.
So in our DAC we share technology with a different degree of implementation.
We use on all our unit Sabre DAC:
on Intenso and Impulso ES9016
on the Excelsio and Supremo the ES9018.
On Excelsio and Supremo the analog and digital supply are derived from different toroidal
transformers.
On the Impulso, Excelsio and Supremo the analog output is available on
balanced and unbalanced connectors.
On the Supremo DAC the analog stage is designed with discrete components only, using very low noise matched Jfet. In this way we can offer a range of products at different prices with the same imprinting at a different level of refinement. So we offer a high value for money for each product in its price range.
