The Hq9038 Tube Dac Architecture

Looking at the heart of the digital to analog section of the DAC Hq9038 tube there are five key ingredients:

1. All new digital DAC board using 7pcs of the Ultra low noise Regulator LT3042 (<1 uV noise) to feed ultra quiet DC voltages to the digital board.

2. i/V conversion with a dedicated resistor to  transfer the analog signal from the DAC board to the Tube board.

3. Analog output stage encorporating a 12AU7 & ECC99, zero feedback  configuration with both single ended output using RCA connectors and true balanced output using XLR connectors.

4. Beautiful remote control.

5. Music server using 1.2GHz quad core CPU  in a Raspberry Pi 3 setup.  The Server runs the Linux operation system.

Design Technology

The brief was to build on our current DAC expertise and develop one of the finest digital to analog converters on the market today.  The experience from prevoius succesfull DAC designs such as  using topologies with No. shunt, low Z-out power supply and combined with using high quality film capacitor will make a dedicated and  delivering unparalleled performance.

The unmatched dynamics, the smoothness, the end result – a staggering experience for the modern audiophile and a chance to re-experience their entire digital collection.
