Casea Cepheus mk2

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Casea released new DAC. Heart of this converter is very favorite DAC Sirius 2 well known as upgrade modul for cheaper CD players. Construction is around 2 x AD1955 (dual mono connection), brand components, perfect design of DSD, gold plated solder points etc..

 

Also Casea is preparing extension for their new DAC's, it means clock synchronization for the sound card in computer.
For example cheap quality sound card ESI Juli@ will be ideal as transport and for laptops/Mac Hiface Evo.

 

They are also preparing english website for overseas customers, prices in €, sale via PayPal. 

 

Casea is excellent small company here unknown unfortunately and people should know about them. It will be interesting when someone will be able to compare it someday with popular DAC's here. I was very impressed when I have heard modified CD player with Sirius 2.

Synchro clocks is out. Masterclock is next to both chips AD1955. Ideal If you have proper soundcards like ESI Juli@, Quartet Duo, Lynx etc or something external with world clock output. Shame that Casea website is not in english language, hopefully in future.

And here is the diy Sirius Synchro (transformator etc. is by CustomWorks on the left). This member had Twisted Pear Buffalo 2 before Sirius Synchro and he sold Buffalo 2 easily because wasn't completely happy.

Lack of information in English on the website is probably the main problem here.

Some news if sombody interested. They released new dac by name Casea Orion Lite which costs $2,5K. Quite expensive but one man on our forums sold his Accuphase DP-510 because of Orion Lite, it is interesting. They are preparing also full version of the Orion and it will be around $5K. Still hope their websites will be one day in English and with news.

They finished their USB synchro - X2S bridge so I ordered Orion Lite, no DACs interested me as this around $2500 maybe only Lynx Hilo and some no compromise DACs like Meitner MA1, Anetolepe Eclipse, full Casea Orion, AMR DP777, dCS, Bricasti M1, Totaldac D1, Esoteric K-0x etc. but this price tag over $5K it is huge never my teritory..
Full Orion will have against Lite for example top Casea hardware upsampling etc.
 
And again if anybody interest Casea preparing some very intersting news for this or next year like CDPro, Reference Preamp, Network Player, maybe even amp for planars, new website etc. It is everything info from czech forums.
 
I will maybe start new thread when I will have Orion Lite in February but I will not have anything to compare with and no technic knowledge so I will see..
