The ANK Audiokits DAC 4.1 has been our most popular DAC since 2011. For the ultimate in digital reproduction the DAC 4.1 offers velvet smooth operation with no digital artifacts or treble edge. Following the Audio Note tradition of Non Oversampling Resistor Ladder Architecture (R-2R) pure digital to analog conversion method, it hardwires digital information directly to output voltage. And with triple C-Core transformers digital reproduction never sounded so good!
The latest version of the DAC 4.1 boasts numerous features and supports up to 24/96khz sampling and data widths. The DAC also has the M2 tube rectified and regulated power supply for ultimate smoothness. To complete the pure digital to analog design of the DAC 4.1 the digital board has no analog filtering (analog filtering has been totally removed). If you are looking for digital sound reproduction with no digital artifacts and smooth as velvet output with no fatigue then the DAC 4.1 is the kit for you!
