Now, reference-quality performance is available at a price that won't break your budget. Emotiva Pro's all-new Stealth DC-1 provides an accurate, transparent window on your work, coupled with exceptional convenience features that make it the ideal preamp and control center for your analog and digital workflow.
The Stealth DC-1 uses dual independent AD1955 differential D/A converters, each operated in their highest quality internal differential monaural mode, for the lowest possible noise and distortion, followed by professional-grade LM4562 op-amps in the analog section for maximum fidelity. An advanced switchable asynchronous sample rate converter (ASRC) re-clocks the data at the same sample rate as the incoming signal, to dramatically reduce jitter. You'll hear what your source really sounds like. Built on high-quality 4-layer FR4 PC boards, using the highest quality parts, including an oversized toroidal power supply with multiple stages of linear regulation, the Stealth DC-1 offers measured and sonic performance that exceeds DACs costing several times more.
The Emotiva Pro Stealth DC-1 gives you a full range of pro-grade inputs, including galvanically isolated AES/EBU (XLR), Toslink (optical), Coax S/PDIF (RCA), and BNC S/PDIF digital inputs, and a high performance asynchronous USB input. All digital inputs support the complete range of sample rates and bit depths, from 16/44.1 to 24/192, including 24/88 and 24/176.4. The Stealth DC-1 also has one stereo line level analog input; perfect for connecting an external analog line-level source.
As a reference-quality DAC, the DC-1 includes full balanced differential XLR outputs, as well as RCA single-ended outputs. As you'd expect, the XLR outputs are +6dB relative to the single-ended outputs, for full compatibility with your other professional equipment.
