DAC MODULE UPGRADES (any Generation Platinum DAC)

2nd Generation DAC Upgrade Kit

This upgrade provides the standard 2nd Generation DAC modules for superior sound quality. They both measure and clearly sound better than the first generation Platinum DAC Modules. They are standard in all DAC III and DAC IV plus products. They are user installable and come as a matched set of four, replacing the existing DACs. These DACs will work in all versions of the Platinum DAC or CD player. Trade-in required.

Signature DAC Upgrade Kit

This upgrade provides hand matched DAC modules for superior sound quality. These DACs can run at twice the speed (384 kHz sampling rate) with half the settling time. The noise level is cut to 1/3 the normal value and the signal-to-noise ratio is up to 140 db. They are user installable and come as a matched set of four, replacing the existing DACs. These DACs will work in all versions of the Platinum DAC or CD player. Trade-in required.

Available in USB2 to 192k. Also available up to 384k in DAC able to accept such high sample rate data. Uses up one AUX input slot on DAC IV plus. Also available for most MSB and non-MSB DACs.

Upsampler UPGRADES (DAC III and earlier models)

Digital Filter UPGRADES (DAC III and earlier models)

16X Digital Filter Upgrade Kit

This upgrade for older DACs provides the newer 16X digital filter and clock upgrade modules for superior sound quality. They both measure and clearly sound better than the Burr Brown digital filter used in all previous generations of Platinum DACs. They are standard in all DAC III products. They are user installable but in order to work reliably, either the mother board or DAC modules must be upgraded. If you buy this upgrade for any older DAC, remove and return the DAC modules for this free upgrade, or consider a 2nd Generation or Signature DAC upgrade at the same time. This upgrade will work in all DAC III or older models.

Signature 32x Digital Filter Upgrade Kit

The signature 32X digital filter is twice what the 16X filter is. Twice the processor and twice the memory results in more than twice the performance. The 16x filter supplied in the stock DAC III is a huge improvement over commodity digital filters like the Burr-Brown DF1704, but is now bested by the new Signature filter. User installable upgrade for any Platinum DAC III or older.
