If exceptional music-making is the first hallmark of the Naim DAC, the second is versatility.

Versatility comes thanks to S/PDIF inputs that can accommodate either optical or coaxial formats and USB inputs that can accommodate memory sticks and iPod and iPhone models. It arises also from the numerous Naim system upgrades that the DAC makes possible. Simultaneously with its introduction, the CDX2 and CD5 XS CD players have gained S/PDIF outputs and can now benefit significantly from use with the DAC.

With the addition of a DAC, existing preamplifiers can be incorporated into digital audio systems. The Naim DAC can be controlled by a Naim preamplifier remote control, seamlessly integrating analog and digital inputs across the two units. The DAC becomes an extension of the preamplifier. And when a USB stick, iPod or iPhone is docked, the DAC front panel input buttons transform to operate as playback controls.

Each element of the Naim DAC has a vital role to play in its musical virtuosity, but it is not just the specifics of each that is important, it is their organisation also. The influence of the signal path, the microphony of circuit boards, the impact of the track layout, the noise contribution of components, the noise sensitivity of others – each one is vital, and each one influences
every other.

The DAC signal path is fundamentally simple. The SHARC DSP, operating as a filter, receives the data, then over-samples and low-pass filters the data and feeds this to its peripheral memory. Also operating as a buffer; the memory outputs data clocked by the oscillator. The DAC chips turn digital into the analogue current, and the I to V converters turn current into voltage. The analog lowpass filter removes high-frequency artifacts and buffers the signal for a preamplifier.
