Silbatone DA-105


Our first digital offering,the DAC105 Converter combines State of The Art digital design with highest-performance analog stages we could invent for the task.

Native DSD (2.82MHz/64fs, 5.64MHz/256fs), 32bit/384kHz sampling rate with automatic switching, based on 2×9018 Reference DAC chips from ESS Technologies. Asynchronous USB eliminates jitter. Two S/PDIF outputs (ABS/EBU and coaxial) with super shielded digital transformers reduce jitter. Optical SS/PDIF is also furnished.

The analog section of the DAC105 had an AD797-based IV converter into a fully-balanced, ultra-wide bandwidth (10-500kHz) using a Telefunken 6211and JFET buffer which does not require an output capacitor. All audio wiring is silver litz.
