Crimson HS Directly Heated Triode All Tube USB DAC
The High Speed version of the Crimson isolates the Computer from the USB DAC with high speed optical isolators. The new HS version allows the user to operate at any sample rate from 44.1K to 192K and either 24 or 32 bits depending on which DAC module is selected.
The Crimson is the flag ship of the Wavelength line and the output section is totally tube driven. The high voltage section is rectified by the EZ80/6V4 rectifier which is smoothed by a filter choke and a host of Black Gate capacitors. The 71A output tubes (optionally WE101M/L or RE134) are supported by massive custom built (USA) MagneQuest Audio Chokes and Output Transformers.
