Product Description

An Incredibly Versatile, Smooth and Revealing DAC

The Lindemann USB-DAC 24/192 breathes new life into any digital front end with a truly seductive blend of resolution and musicality. Developed to offer people the ability to stream higher resolution music directly from their computer via USB, USB-DAC lets you enjoy Audio Class 2 technology and offers three inputs that accept up to 24-bit/192kHz input data rates, all at an affordable price. Within its unassuming, extruded, lightweight aluminum case lays a circuit board with discrete micro-circuitry, featuring carefully selected chipsets, digital filters and a very stable master clock. The USB-DAC also includes several "trickle-down" technologies found in Lindemann's 825 High Definition Digital Player, like XMOS-DSP 24/192 asynchronous USB, jitter reduction at <50 pico seconds, minimum phase digital filter with apodizing behavior, proprietary up-sampling and filtering technology and the same DAC module. All of this adds up to the USB-DAC's unusually warm, analog-like sound from any digital source you can throw at it.

"The USB-DAC 24/192 sounds as elegant as it looks. It has a beguiling analog like quality. I could not find any sonic faults with it and it allowed for endless hours of fatigue free listening...as far as pure performance and design are concerned, the Lindemann USB-DAC 24/192 is for me a top contender... Highly recommended."
-- Andre Marc, Positive Feedback, Jan/Feb 2012

Norbert Lindemann chose an output stage for the USB-DAC that offers a level of performance not typically found at this price point. It’s has an analog output stage that is fully balanced, with a high bandwidth spanning 200 MHz. In addition, the internal chipset designs have an optimal voltage that is limited to +/- 5V; therefore, the optimized output voltage is only 1.4 Vrms for 0 dBFS. As a result, the USB-DAC's output is lower than most of the competitors that use standard operational amplifiers -- but not at the expense of definition. In fact, the output voltage from the DAC module is amplified less, therefore, eliminating most of the potential static noises. So all one has to do is increase the volume level by +4 to +6 dB to experience the same listening level. Music will now sound natural and just plain right.

The Lindemann USB-DAC 24/192 is a digital/analog converter for music lovers who are looking for more than just datasheet performance. Its design has benefited from Lindemann's many years of experience in developing sophisticated digital components for music. Technical details, otherwise found only in far more expensive components, make this into an audiophile highlight with an attractive price.

The USB interface of the USB-DAC 24/192 is based on an XMOS-DSP with enormous computing power (500 Mips), which can transmit music files of up to 24 bits and 192 kHz in asynchronous mode. As far as sound is concerned, this solution outshines all the other current digital music reproduction models. In sound tests, no other streamer or USB device could produce music at such a high standard.

Operation is very straightforward: you don’t even need a driver for Apple computers! For Windows computers, Lindemann offers a certified driver from the professional audio sector which works extremely well with all Windows versions - even 64 bit!

The USB-DAC 24/192 makes it fun to listen to music on the computer, and achieves excellent results and upgrades the sound of older digital components such as CD players or DAT recorders.
