Totaldac d1-24 DAC!


Photos and info about the custom Totaldac DAC for a customer in Poland. He ordered two d1-twelve DACs that combined offer a 3.2V unbuffered natively balanced output.

This custom DAC, called d1-24 is composed of 8 boxes:

-1 power supply
-3 reclockers
-4 DAC monoblocs


Totaldac d1-24 uses about 1200 Vishay Foil naked resistors all in total. Two reclockers are chained for an even better sound.

This DAC feeds directly Cabasse active speakers in a highly optimized room. Some classical preamplifiers were tried but the configuration with no preamp was preferred by extended listening tests.

The Totaldac d1-driver may be tried later...
