The Rega Dac – Making More Sense of the Music
The Rega DAC is a 16/20/24-bit at 32kHz to 192kHz digital to analogue converter incorporating an enhanced version of the Rega designed circuit. Developed to be simple to set up and use, the Rega DAC is designed to optimise performance from any two channel PCM digital audio source such as a CD player PC or streaming device.
With the PC/Laptop and MAC now widely accepted as creditable mediums for storing and streaming music. The use of high quality lossless files such as WAV, FLAC, AIFF and ALAC offer performance through the DAC equal to and in some cases better than red book CD.
The Rega Dac is an incredibly flexible piece of equipment, sporting 2 coaxial and 2 optical inputs alongside a USB (type B) input for a PC or Mac.
In performance terms the Rega Dac is very musical, dynamic , detailed and simply gets your foot tapping – which can only be a good thing. It never gets aggressive or too strident in its presentation though.
If you’ve a Sonos ZP90 (or ZP90) or any basic streamer with a digital output the Rega DAC will simply breath a new lease of life into your music collection. It even improves upon the performance of the Rega Apollo CD player (and for that matter just about every CD player in the £500.00 to £600.00 price bracket).
It simply makes you want to listen to more music, which can only be a good thing
