Product Description

First offering of DACs from Quartz Acoustic will be the globally-acclaimed ODAC!

As quoted from JDS Lab store:

“The ObjectiveDAC (ODAC) is a digital to analog convertor designed by NwAvGuy and Yoyodyne Consulting, which achieves benchmark performance competitive with reference grade digital-to-analog converters. Full benchmarks can be found at NwAvGuy’s O2 Release Article.”

Only ODAC with RCA outputs configuration will be shipped in as this provides the most flexible and common way of connection to an amp. As portability is not the intended usage for this DAC, size is not a consideration in making this decision.

Design with performance, tested in competence, and sold by confidence, ODAC is truly one of the hallmark example of excellence in value. Reproducing sounds in their most natural manner, this neutrality from ODAC is a faithful unit serving its primary duty at its best. Little to almost no colouration of the sound will pass on the pristine signals of great clarity and imaging to your amp for your desired taste of output.

    Totally surprise with the capability of this little DAC! So transparent and detailed. Glad I can get it here, as direct shipping from US or mass order from forum (seems unavailable anymore) would probably take a while or more expensive. A very satisfied purchase.

    Small form factor, but big performance! Bought cmoy from jds labs before and trust their worksmanship and value. This odac does not disappoint yet again.

    Great that this can be bought locally from an official distributor. Quick and trusted shipping is made possible now!

    (verified owner):

    This DAC is bang for the buck! It can go head to head with more expensive DACs above its class.Truly a reference grade DAC, it will expose the beauty and flaws of the records you listen to.
