Tube DAC

now hear high resolution music without compromise

With the advancements of Recording technologies, its now common to record and produce high resolution music which is far above in terms of quality to that offered by CDs. InsigniaHiFi Audio Labs felt an obvious need to deploy valve technology in designing DACs and avoid all solid state amplification stages. It is also an invaluable asset for a mixing mastering engineer running a Digital Audio Workstation.

Cutting-Edge Technology… its Rocket Science!

It is often said that there is nothing new under the sun when it comes to valve technology however, it is the extent of quality-obsession which makes the difference.

Its almost a Cliche to saty that there is something about records that makes you connect with music and once you’re hooked on, there is no turning back. At InsigniaHiFi it became an obvious direction to focus and Tube DAC is the result of that.

This DAC is built with one goal in mind… that’s Fidelity with ultimate transients & Dynamic Range! The way we look at it is a fundamentalist’s approach. We have successfully deployed a minimalist approach and reduced the number of passive components in the signal path. All these components are hand-selected from a space-grade lot! We like overkill when it comes to audio-tech. We’ve gone way above industry standards in deploying the tolerance limits for better than Robust Performance.
