Superb high-end digital to analogue converter to partner the CLASSIC PRE and CLASSIC POWER AMP. On demonstration at Criterion Audio.
The Nagra CLASSIC DAC derives most of its technology from the Nagra HD DAC which has so impressed audiophiles throughout the world, but has been developed to integrate fully with the CLASSIC range and retail at a lower price point.
With the identical digital input and conversion boards as the Nagra HD DAC, it is only in the analog stage that the Nagra CLASSIC DAC differs. It produces the same “analog” sound as its bigger brother which is considered to be the standard in the D/A market by which all other machines are judged.
Please note: The Vibration Free System base (VFS and VFS-L) is not included but is available as an optional extra.
