The Terminator is DENAFRIPS' flagship DAC. Being a flagship, the Terminator is filled with our years of R&D achievement in it. State of the art fourth generation discrete resistor 26Bit R-2R for PCM decoding, 6Bit DSD hardware decoding with 32 steps FIR filters, a total breakthrough of the traditional integrated chip constraints.
The DAC core conversion module R-2R is constructed with 0.005% high precision, 10ppm low thermal effect precision resistors. Each channel uses more than 500pcs of these precision resistors, or 1000pcs for two channels, it's 4 times more than the other typical R-2R DAC. These achieve a truly astonishing low distortion, full balanced design. Crystek flagship ultra low phase noise FEMTO clocks are used with FIFO technology to ensure the DAC clock is independent to the input signal.
STATE OF THE ART
LINEAR POWER SUPPLY
Dedicated encapsulated beefy linear power supply unit, designed in a thick metal alloy enclosure, can be found underneath the DAC board with additional steel plate divider between them for extra shielding. The box-within-box design, not only does it eliminates the inherited problems of dual box solution, it presents the micro details and attentions DENAFRIPS put into the flagship Terminator.
Beefy dual O-Core Transformers for Digital and Analog sections, Ultra-Low ESR, Long Endurance Reservoir Capacitors, and multi-stages super linear power supply, ensuring ultra precision, low ripple power supply charging up DAC.
