  • Exciting, Dynamic and Transparent Sound Reproduction

    The exaSound e20 mkIII DAC brings music reproduced with recording studio accuracy to computer audiophiles. e20 can play any high-resolution stereo recording the way it was recorded - nothing added, nothing taken away.

    e20 supports PCM sampling rates from 44.1 to 384Khz at 32bit resolution, and DSD at 2.82 and 5.64 MHz.

    Designed and Built for Computer Audiophiles

    * DSD 2.82MHz and DSD 5.64MHz without conversion to PCM
    * 384kHz/ 32bit maximum PCM sampling rate.
    * 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 second generation headphone amplifier capable of driving the most demanding headphones.
    * Simultaneously driven, gold plated balanced (XLR), and unbalanced (RCA) line outputs.
    * Two S/PDIF inputs provide jitter reduction and superb D/A conversion when used with CD transports.
    * The e20 DAC can be programmed to work with most IR remote controls.
