The DA 200 is a feature-packed DAC with the classic Luxman sound. For those of you looking to upgrade from the Burson DAC, the Luxman is the next logical step. Offering up more resolution than the Burson while preserving that same musical, toe-tapping quality.
The Luxman DA-200 is a state-of-the-art digital control center featuring a superlative 24-bit/96kHz DAC with two line level analog inputs, two S/PDIF digital inputs, and a dedicated 24-bit/96kHz USB input to support Mac and PC audio. The Luxman DA-200 processes a warm yet tonally correct sound, with the ability to retrieve every detail - the message of a live performance will seamlessly immerse you in any musical recording.
The DA-200 is essentially the DAC section from the D-05. It incorporates a Burr-Brown PCM1792A DAC and adopts asynchronous data processing using a sample rate converter, an effective means of eliminating clock jitter inherent in digital source components and computers. The Class A differential audio output stage then feeds a low impedance preamplifier with user-switchable fixed/variable XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) outputs. A built-in headphone amplifier of the highest caliber drives a wide variety of headphones. All peripheral circuits of the DAC and the analog output stage compares well to the sonic virtues of the outstanding D-05 SACD/CD player. Luxman's typical round-pattern printed circuit boards, spiral-wrap shielded internal wiring and custom parts further enhance the sonic performance of the DA-200. The front panel display screen has a 7-segment LED indicator that monitors all input and output sampling frequencies in real time.
