1321 may be our entry level DAC, but there’s nothing entry-level about the technology and performance of this unit. 1321 is based on the same well-tested and renowned Soekris R-2R technology shared by the 1421 and 1541, but without the headphone amp, digital display, and crossfeed. It has the fantastically clean and natural sound of a 25 bit R-2R sign-magnitude DAC, built with over two hundred tiny and ultra precise thin film resistors. The line output buffer is a high-performance, fully-balanced, zero-feedback design built with discrete parts.
The main power supplies are ultra low noise, low impedance, very fast, and are also built with discrete parts. The music is delivered over an USB interface in both PCM and DSD formats, or by the SPDIF, AES or Toslink inputs. It is then buffered and re-clocked using a precise and ultra low jitter oscillator. The digital processing is done in a programmable FPGA chip, with a set of select-able advanced digital filters and a digital volume control.
