Lampizator Pacific dac – balanced with tube rectifier + volume
The Pacific DAC is the pinnacle of refinement, a true masterpiece, that shows what digital – done properly – can do.
It was designed from ground-up, based on our 8 years of experience making over thousand DACs by hand.
We used all that experience and added many new ideas and improvements,
to create something that – however impossible – would out-shadow all our previous DACs in every way.
We were making the Pacific with the most demanding audiophiles in mind – thoseseeking the musical satisfaction,
technical excellence of world class and most importantly – connection to emotions in music.
We followed a few principles, that make this product stand out, as the most musical DAC:
single ended triode schematics, true copper capacitors, zero negative feedback, zero silicon from the point of signal creation to the output,
highest quality stepped resistor ladder volume control, gold plated PCB, tube power supply with rectifier and chokes
and music-first philosophy of design. All these factors combined deliver synergy of sound, design and style.
The technology is dressed in gorgeous housing to match. Highest caliber parts are used throughout.
