The e18 DAC brings the highest quality of multichannel music reproduction to computer audiophiles. It delivers transparent, high-definition sound that far exceeds the sonic capabilities of high-end disc payers and receivers.
e18 is a state of the art 8 channel computer sound interface capable of playing DXD studio-master files.
e18 is the missing link - the only device needed between a computer and a high-end analogue audio amplifier.
e18 allows for the purest and most transparent processing of digital files for producing reference-quality sound.
Designed and Built for Computer Audiophiles
384kHz/ 32bit maximum sampling rate. Stereo and 8-channel modes.
DXD 352.8kHz master files are reproduced with remarkable bit-perfect low-jitter accuracy.
ES9018 Sabre32 jitter-cancelling reference DAC chip from ESS Technologies.
Asynchronous USB Interface eliminates jitter caused by unstable computer timing.
OS X and Windows ASIO custom high-performance drivers.
Automatic sampling rate switching.
384 kHz software upsampling.
0.13 ps master clock. Jitter minimization is achieved by using 3 three precision oscillators.
17 power filtering stages minimize noise, jitter and channel crosstalk.
Galvanic isolation between the USB subsystem and the DAC circuits eliminates noise caused by ground loops and blocks computer-originated interferences.
High-fidelity headphone amplifier capable of driving the most demanding headphones.
Two S/PDIF inputs provide jitter reduction and superb D/A conversion when used with traditional CD transports.
The e18 DAC can be programmed to work with most IR remote controls.
The e18 DAC delivers reference performance for high-end stereo, digital crossovers and cutting-edge audiophile multichannel applications.
