DAC AK4493 + OPA2211
The EM5 conversion stage is based on an excellent AK4493 chip. This generation of AKM 32bit DACs features Velvet Sound ™ technology as well as OSR Doubler filtering. It also ensures an extremely low level of distortion with a generous dynamic range.
Integrated into an Android system, the DAC supports sampling rates up to 32bit 768kHz and native DSD256 (+ DSD512 software support), while ensuring minimal noise as well as pure sound reproduction.
The digital to analog circuit is accompanied by Panasonic Polymet Tantalum capacitors, allowing filtering of the power supply and therefore contribute to upgrading the in-depth signal-to-noise ratio.
Finally, the analog signal at the output of the DAC circuit embeds an OPA2211 operational amplifier: a remarkable component regularly used in the filtering / buffering of very high-end DACs.
