The Leema Acoustics Libra DAC and Pre Amplifier is encased in the same precision machined casework as our famous Tucana and Antila products, with a staggering array of class leading technologies enclosed.
Featured on the Constellation series DAC and Pre-Amp are three coaxial and three optical digital inputs all capable of accepting high-resolution 24 bit 192kHz audio. These are joined by some of the more esoteric options, including two I2S inputs via RJ45 connectors. Featuring fully programmable pin allocation of one of these inputs in software, any high end source with an I2S interface can be accommodated with ease.
There are also two input connections available via industry standard XLR connectors for those who own sources with professional standard AES/EBU outputs.
Leema’s class leading M1 USB module provides a connection for computer audio replay from both Windows (driver software included), Macintosh and Linux machines. With the interface being fully asynchronous, the Libra DAC and Pre Amp is able to regulate the data rate coming from the computer, allowing it to deliver incredibly low jitter levels. This feature combined with full galvanic isolation using cutting edge spinning electron technology, ensures that the music you have on your computer sounds as good as is technically achievable.
The product also features the following analogue inputs: three separate inputs, each of which can be individually configured as unbalanced, via RCA Cinch connectors, or fully balanced via XLR connectors. There is also a Bluetooth interface making music Bluetooth equipped devices.
Flexibility features again in the output section. Libra is able to operate either as a conventional audio component with fixed output level, or as a high-end pre-amplifier with full analogue volume control on-board.
Outputs are provided via unbalanced RCA/Cinch connectors and balanced XLR connectors. A very high quality headphone output is also featured.
