The Leema Elements DAC is the first stand-alone Leema DAC and as such establishes the Leema benchmark for digital-to-analogue conversion, in performance as well as features.
Quattro Infinity DAC topology, first seen in the range topping Antila liS Eco CD player, has been further developed and improved to ensure that the Leema Elements DAC has outstanding technical performance. All inputs, including the USB input, offer full 24 bit I 192 kHz capability. The latest asynchronous and multi-frequency adaptive modes ensure perfect synchronisation with the source for almost invisible levels of jitter, to ensure the highest possible quality of digital replay.
The inclusion of an analogue volume control allows the Leema Elements DAC to be used as a very high quality pre amplifier.
The digital volume control fitted to some DACs actually works by reducing resolution at the same time as attenuating the signal, making them a poor choice for high resolution audio. In addition to the analogue volume control, the Elements DAC features infra-red remote control, a mute button and an on-board headphone amplifier so it can operate perfectly as both a DAC and a high quality pre-amplifier.
Full LIPS® implementation allows for easy system integration with other Leema products and home automation systems.
