Audio-GD R-27HE

R2R DAC Balanced Class A Headphone Amplifier Preamplifier 32bit 384kHz DSD512 Silver

Audio-GD R-27HE DAC R2R Amplificateur Casque Préamplificateur Symétrique Class A 32bit 384kHz DSD512 Argent

A new creation from Audio-GD, the R-27HE is a balanced R2R DAC ladder with a built-in headphone amplifier and ACSS preamplifier. This improved version of the R-27 now features a regenerative power supply capable of providing an extremely clean electrical signal to the audio circuits. The entire design benefits from great attention to detail and component selection to provide the best possible sonic performance. The R-27HE also features a FIFO buffer with an optimized FPGA and a highly efficient reclocking system.

Key features :

  • Four sets of discrete, independent hardware DSD decoders.
  • Eight groups of discrete R2R DA modules, forming a balanced two-channel push-pull decoder.
  • Dual TCXO Accusilicon clock with frequencies of 90 and 98MHz, providing perfect synchronization to the whole device.
  • USB and HDMI inputs equipped with isolators and separate linear power supplies to drastically limit interference.
  • Bidirectional USB transmission, providing the I2S signal to the FPGA and receiving the synchronous clock signal from it.
  • ACSS non-feedback headphone amplifier capable of developing significant power to accompany all types of headphones.
  • Unique regenerative power supply technology to provide extremely clean power supply to the various circuits of the device.
  • Solid aluminum frame.

R2R Ladder DAC 

The stage in charge of the analog/digital conversion is based on 4 integrated shielded DA-7 V2 modules. These modules directly interpret each bit of the digital signals to reconstruct the analog signal. Each module performs its task by acting on a network of resistors with a given value (R) and its double (2R), without going through an oversampling phase. This particular construction allows to decode digital signals with a quasi insensitivity to jitter while avoiding any possibility of recovering clock noises in the output signal.

Each channel is decoded separately by its own set of modules to achieve optimal crosstalk. To take this a step further, each channel of the stereo system uses its own linear power supply to minimize the amount of noise that can affect the soundstage and the stereo.

The module sets are supported by an FPGA. This one is in charge of the synchronization of the audio signals and the rejection of the jitter. It allows to offer a more precise and transparent sound restitution, while drastically reducing noise. 3 Accusilicon clocks are also integrated, allowing once again to reduce jitter to a minimum thanks to an optimal synchronization of the signals.

Jitter elimination technology

In order to eliminate the influence of jitter on the incoming signal, the R-27HE uses an asynchronous clock system. The asynchronous clocking system first reads and stores a large amount of data in RAM, while eliminating the clock from the source signal. This data is then passed to the integrated Accusilicon high-performance clocks, and all data and clock signals are then managed by the FPGA. This special design significantly reduces the final jitter level for a very natural, faithful and accurate sound reproduction.

ACSS Preamplifier & Headphone Amplifier

The R-27HE incorporates a true balanced architecture with ACSS technology for its headphone amplifier and preamp stages. These use a single, very low distortion ACSS gain stage to minimize the signal path and maintain the most neutral sound possible. This gain stage and the associated output stage operate in pure Class A. ACSS is a non-feedback technology using only discrete amplifiers within a balanced structure.

Regenerative power supply

A regenerative power supply is capable of filtering out interference on the power line to provide the purest possible power to the audio circuits. In this design, AC power is converted to DC power by the input transformer and then supplied to the regenerative waveform generator via a Class A parallel stabilized power supply. A set of regenerative waveform generators produces a 50Hz sine wave with very low distortion. After passing through a balanced gain stage, three regenerative output transformers produce a pure voltage with stable amplitude and frequency. Two sets of parallel regulated Class A power supplies finally provide independent power supply to the analog output stages and the digital audio circuits.

Volume control

Here again, the R-27HE departs from convention by using a volume control based on I/V conversion at the output of the ACSS amplifier. This non-destructive method maintains a flat frequency response and does not lose any detail. To achieve this, the Audio-GD R-27HE uses relays and resistors with a tolerance of only 0.05%, ensuring a high degree of precision in the setting and perfect channel balance.

Definitivo
E' improbabile che, se non si guasta (ma la mia esperienza con gli apparecchi Audio-GD è positiva dal 2014) io pensi di cambiare questo all-in-one semplicemente meraviglioso.
Il suono è melodia pura, la flessibilità elevatissima.
L'unico difetto, se vogliamo trovarne uno, è l'imbarazzante sistema di menù per le regolazioni, anche le più semplici come gli ingressi e le uscite.

Excellent !!! Magnifique appareil, et qui sonne vraiment bien.
Bonjour,

J'ai acheté le R27HE pour remplacer un Auralic Véga G2.1 que je trouvais un peu trop simpliste dans son rendu. Un certain manque de présence. D'humanité.
Pour avoir déjà eu dans le passé un R28, je savais déjà un peu à quoi m'attendre.
Pour planter le décor, j'utilise un Roon Core directement raccordé en USB au R27HE qui est en mode NOS et sorties fixes XLR (2VRMS) qui alimente un NAGRA Classic INT. Ce dernier se chargeant de la partie Pré/ Ampli.
Alors quand j'ai reçu le colis en UPS express le mardi pour une commande prise en compte le lundi, j'ai été surpris par la taille du carton.
Puis par le deuxième carton, puis par le troisième carton.
Chez Audiophonics, on ne plaisante pas avec la marchandise.
Quand j'ai ouvert le dernier carton et que j'ai vu la bête, la première chose que je me suis dit, c'est "je ne voyais pas ce DAC aussi grand, j'aurais du lire le descriptif avant. Les 48 cm de profondeur ne trouveront pas place dans n'importe quel meuble.
Après quelques manipulation dans les menus qui ne sont pas du plus intuitif, mais bon, ça n'a jamais été le fort d'Audio GD, et franchement, une fois les réglages choisis, plus besoin d'y aller, hors mis pour passer de la Fonction DAC à la fonction ampli casque.
Après une mise en chauffe d'une demi heure le temps de tout bien lire du mode d'emploie (traduction de la page d'AGD) je vous livre enfin mon ressenti.
Je ne regrette pas mon choix d'avoir vendu mon Véga G2.1.
Attaquer directement le DAC en USB avec un Roon Core, ça marche parfaitement et pas besoin d'un Endpoint .
Tout y est. Scène sonore, profondeur, largeur et hauteur.
Une belle matière sur tous les instruments. Ca swing, on tape du pied et avec le sourire SVP.
Tout passe ou presque. Les prises de son pourries restent pourries, mais ça c'est normal.
Pour l'instant, seulement le rodage d'usine effectué chez AGD, mais ci c'est encore meilleur dans 300 heures , alors je n'ai pas finis de taper du pieds et de sourire.
Merci à David Aubert pour ses réponses et sa réactivité.
Sans hésitation, 5 étoiles pour Audiophonics et Audio GD.
