Moving upwards from Amber and Baltic, you get the first DAC that doesn’t use so called small signal tubes but instead – Lampizator uses the overkill power tubes, acting like small signal. They are way off the typical operating points used in amplifiers, and that’s why these tubes in their DAC are not stressed, not running out of steam, but instead acting with unheard-of authority, ease, grace and dynamics. The resulting sound character of this DAC is a whole level better than obtainable from any small tube. You owe it to yourself to hear what such pentode system can do. It would be like the first ride in a V8 car. There is – simply speaking – no going back.
The Main Features:
- Tube based power supply, choke CLC filtering, copper output caps, engine #198 with DSD256x , Balanced or Single ended – by order, possibility to add full preamp feature with remote control, display, and resistor ladders. Balanced configuration is truly balanced, not merely an SE circuit with phase doubler at the end. You get also analog preamp inputs, newest USB firmware for Linux and Windows, and as standard you get the fine EL34 tetrodes that we can obtain from series production.
- The top cover on Atlantic 2 TRP DAC is CHARCOAL BLACK
- An exclusive luxury version of the Atlantic is the Golden Atlantic. Golden Atlantic 2 DAC is very popular due to the exclusive real copper top. It is not a mere decor, or copper clad steel. It is a sheet of pure German copper. Other features in Golden Atalantic include Copper Top, WBT sockets at the back, premium power supply capacitors, better tubes from the best ones we know, elegant flight case custom made for this product and Stacore footers.
