Diamond is the perfect DAC and preamplifier for everyone who plays music exclusively from digital sources. Diamond offers connectivity for six digital sources and an external word clock. The superior VOLTAiR technology and the premium DAC with the unequalled DLP120 combined with an analog volume control allowing for highest resolution at any volume makes the Diamond an one-of-a-kind DA converter that delivers finest soundstages with an unrivalled analog feel.
Diamond offers each a stereo USB and AES input as well as each two optical and coaxial stereo inputs. Via USB, both PCM audio and DSD audio can be converted. PCM audio is received in S/PDIF format, both coaxial (RCA), optical (Toslink F06) and balanced (AES/EBU).
The source selection is done via the selection control on the front. The selected input is also shown in the dot matrix LED display: USB, COA1, COA2, OPT1, OPT2 or AES.
After approximately two seconds, the display shows the type of clock source and the detected sampling rate.
