ESOTERIC is pleased to introduce a new 32-bit D/A converter model D-07 that supports the playback of Super Audio CD, CD and high-resolution, hard drive based music files.

The D-07 is a dual mono D/A converter capable of 32bit resolution throughout the signal path.

The D-07 features a variety of digital inputs, including a USB terminal, that support the playback of Super Audio CDs together with ESOTERIC's Super Audio CD Transport products, as well as the playback of high-resolution music files. The D-07's USB input can accept native resolution up to 24bit/96kHz.

The digital processing in the D/A conversion input is realized by utilizing a variety of D/D conversion functions, and thus represents the pinnacle of ESOTERIC's digital processing technology. The new D-07 features high-definition functions that employ state-of-the-art technology, such as format conversion for converting PCM digital signals to DSD, PCM up-conversion (2x/4x), and two digital filters (Including "pre-echo" reduction). These functions can be freely selected and used to fit your needs.

WORD SYNC allows you to synchronize playback with other digital devices, and a 2nd PLL effectively reduces the jitter for digital devices without WORD SYNC - these are the kind of high-definition functions that can only be found on high-end, specialized devices.

The D-07 also has an attenuator for controlling the level of analog output. This can be combined with selector functions that are used for a variety of digital inputs, and allow the DAC to serve as a high-end digital preamplifier.

The D-07, which can be used with both audio-visual devices and the PC, maximizes the potential of ESOTERIC's state-of-the-art technology. It is the ultimate high-end D/A converter for people that demand the utmost in quality for high-resolution music sources.
