ONKYO DAC 1000 32/192 USB asynchronous

post #1 of 83
Thread Starter 

An interesting new dac : ONKYO DAC 1000.

 

It uses Burr Brown 1795.

 

USB async 32/192, windows XP, Vista, 7 compatible (inc. 64 bit).

Coaxial input X 2

Optical input X 2

AES/EBU

Balanced and unbalanced outputs.

Nice aluminium case, only in silver.

600 £ in UK, 1000 USD. But for the moment, it seems that it is only a japanese standard version (100V), i am not sure.

interesting, joynet already sell it for about 950 exc shipping...

Frequency: 2Hz ~48kHz(+0/-0.5dB)
S/N ratio: 116dB(USB→LINE OUT IHF-A)
Max Harmonic Distortion: 0.003%
Digital input sampling frequency:
- Optical: 32kHz/44.1kHz/48kHz/88.2kHz/96kHz
- Coaxial: 32kHz/44.1kHz/48kHz/88.2kHz/96kHz/176.4kHz/192kHz (AES/EBU)
-USB: 44.1kHz/48kHz/96kHz/192kHz (also corresponds to 2ch PCM)
Dimensions: W215 × H93.3 × D287.9mm

This does look potentially good, at least on paper. Async USB input up to 24/192 if that matters. I found one person who seems to like it but his descriptions have the typical vagueness ("It blows the DacMagic out of the water") that isn't very helpful:

I wonder if they will be releasing it in other areas, or if it will be Japan only.

Anyone got a chance to try this thing?

i like the staking down they did with the large capacitors, something you don't see a lot of the smaller manufactures doing with some of their large caps.  it is slightly overkill for the commercial world but a almost a requirement just in the aerospace world to prevent cracked solder joints due to vibration.

Well, what I don't know is why they used that many caps, especially in the output stage. I've seen many hi-end DACs that have discrete output stages with little to no caps.
post #7 of 83

which caps are you referring to?  the 4 far left and two at the bottom are not part of the output stage.  (six i was referring to above).

I think a thread bump is in order. This DAC costs less than the Wyred 4 Sound DAC-1 and looks nicely put together. There's an absence of reviews around for it. Has anyone here given it a try?

The fact that it appears to still be a Japan only release, along with the reputation that Onkyo has (focus on quality mass market surround receivers), means that I don't think many people would be willing to give it a try. If I wasn't already up to my eyeballs in DACs I might try to arrange something.

I've just seen it in an english website. Now, there is a 220/240 V release for Europe. Perhaps we'll read some reviews soon.

I hope so as I'm most interested in this DAC.

post #12 of 83

Me too. I often wish I had stopped this hobby with the A-9555/DX-7555 combo I started with. For all the money I've spent, it has never really gotten justifiably better than that, "mass market" reputation or not.

When I said "mass market" I didn't mean that as any sort of insult. I love the various Onkyo gear I've owned over the years (and the Integra counterparts). My point was just that they generally are not thought of as a big player in the 2-channel mid to higher priced category, which is where this DAC seems to fit.

Really hard not to judge by PCM1795.
 
Connectivity options are pretty impressive, too many audiophile DAC builders skip on this and hide behind "purity" concepts.

True but Onkyo has always been on the leading edge of the digital pro audio sector, sampling and waveforms etc.
