The Terminator II is a trickle down of the Terminator Plus DAC. It 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. Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators OCXO clocks are used with FIFO buffer and reclocking - to eliminate the word-clock jitter from the sources.

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 Terminator II DAC.


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.

The award-winning Terminator II remains as our True Reference DAC to-date.

A DAC Hat Trick

"Denafrips has gone and done it, producing three DACs that delighted me with reproduction that brings out the heart and beast in what ever music I sent its way. As you might expect, the Terminator II’s upgrades over the lower priced Denafrips DACs allow for even deeper exploration of the sounds and moods in music. Very well done!"

Steff Huff • Youtube Review

Hello! Today I want to talk about the Denafrips Terminator II DAC. How it is built, how it sounds and even compared to the Pontus II and Chord DAVE. The Terminator II DAC is a world class DAC that brings the high end for much less money. Enjoy!

DENAFRIPS Terminator II DAC, Wowsa!

"So Steve, what do you really think?"

"Well, I think I just told you what I really think. But i will sum it up this way: For the price, for the built quality you get for that money, and the sound quality, i think the Terminator II is actually a deal - at least by Audiophile standards - it is underpriced for what you get."

Denafrips Terminator II Review and Comparison

I'm not joking when I say that I could completely picture Jordan striking the steel drum, ranging between medium speed to somewhat fast strikes with mallets in both hands. I'd never heard this level of detail previously. It gave me a whole new take on the track because it was just more real.
