Both the DAC & DAC-V1 employ Naim’s unique digital signal processing technology to effectively eliminate jitter – timing errors which are the nemesis of sound quality in the digital audio realm.

Multiple S/PDIF inputs mean they can handle audio from sources like games consoles, set top boxes, CD and DVD players and hard disk music servers such as the UnitiServe. The slimline DAC will sit perfectly in your hi-fi rack, acting as your digital music hub, while the compact DAC-V1 is the perfect solution to get Naim quality sound from your computer through its asynchronous USB input.

The DAC-V1 is an asynchronous USB digital to analogue converter with multiple digital S/PDIF inputs, precision volume control and a high-quality headphone amplifier. It will produce stunning sound quality from your computer and transform it into a high-quality, high-resolution music hub.

Digital made musical

Connect the DAC-V1 to your PC, Mac or Laptop via a standard A to B USB cable and the quality of your music will be defined not by the limitations of the computer hardware, but by the quality of the data itself. And with DAC-V1 that can be incredibly high, up to 24bit/384kHz resolution.

Flexible yet powerful

While the DAC-V1 is perfectly suited to being positioned on a desk near a computer it is also highly versatile. It can integrate seamlessly into a traditional hi-fi system or be used with any two-channel digital audio source such as a games console, satellite box or any other device with a digital output via one of its five S/PDIF digital inputs. The DAC-V1 can also be combined with the Naim UnitiServe hard disk music server and its matching power amplifier, the NAP 100, to create a compact high-end music system.
