The GAIA is our flagship Digital To Digital Converter. It took us a good 3 years to perfect the development. It leveraged the technologies found in our award-winning DAC, namely, Proprietary FPGA DSP Processing, FIFO Buffer & Reclocking, Industry Leading USB Audio Interface Solution via STM32F466 Advanced AMR based MCU.
SYMBOL OF HIGH-END
More than 8 sets of Ultra Low Noise, Precision Linear Power Regulars along with oversized O-Core Transformer, delivers clean power to the digital circuitry effortlessly.
We do not limit the GAIA to process only the USB signal. We raised the bar. The GAIA accepts USB, SPDIF (Coax, TOSLink, AES/EBU) inputs. These digital signal data-stream will be FIFO buffered and reclocked via the Precision Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator OCXO. This process eliminates the jitter to negligible level, ensuring the digital output signal are free from the harmful jitter noise. The use of OCXO plays an important role here.
If you are still on the fence to look for a D/D Converter that can potentially improve the sonic performance of your system, look no further. GAIA is the best companion that work with most DAC brands & models in the market. Own it and get it setup in your system to hear the difference.
Gaia on duty with fidata was very impressive and surpassed initial expectations. In that specific context alone and considering my system’s total value, this DDC’s price struck me as nowhere near extortionate, while included functionalities and brilliant MO make it this much more appealing.
