The Chord DAVE has the very best conversion technology available. It stands for ‘Digital to Analogue Veritas in Extremis’. Experience unrivalled reality and musicality with unmatched response time. It supports up to 768kHz & DSD 512 (Octa-DSD) playback and can drive headphones up to 800Ω. This DAC is the result of over 20 years of R&D.
The DAVE features the advanced Spartan 6 FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) with 1,000 times the processing power (at 164K taps) of the traditional mass-produced DAC. To handle complex timing issues head-on, this FPGA has over a million lines of code. This gives you significantly improved timing, multiple sonic benefits and the best noise-shaper performance of any known DAC.
The DAVE can be used as a DAC, Amp or standalone Pre-Amp. It has multiple input options like 4 BNC Coax and 1 Galvanically Isolated Type-B USB Inputs that support up to 768kHz; 2 AES/EBU and 2 optical inputs that support 96kHz as well as Expandable DXO Inputs. You also get Unbalanced RCA, Balanced XLR and ¼" headphone outputs. The included IR Remote & volume controls allow for easy usage.
The DAVE uses Chord's famous porthole design which consists of a full-sized LCD display on a solid aluminium chassis, showing sample frequency, volume, input and set-up configuration options. A remote control, as well as the large stainless steel controller and ball buttons on the fascia, makes it easy to use. It comes with a rotary encoder.
