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. Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillators TCXO clocks are used with FIFO buffer and reclocking - to eliminate the word-clock jitter from the sources.
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.
TRUE REFERENCE DAC
The award-winning Terminator remains as our True Reference DAC to-date.
Looking for even better? The very last bit of ultimate performance? We have the Terminator-Plus DAC for you.
