The new Deco Audio TRANSFER Standard DAC comes from British soil and (thus?) features classic technology in the form of tubes.
The English have “something” with both technology and classic. Not very strange therefore that in the new Deco Audio TRANSFER Standard DAC you find a piece of classic technology in the form of gently glowing tubes. Of course assisted by modern technology in the form of a DAC chip. Although? Here too we are talking about a classic: the TDA1543. This is a simple ladder-DAC with an onboard resistor network. So you don’t “suffer” from frivolities such as over- and undersampling. The output stage is handled by ECC82 and ECC83 tubes that can drive both low- and high-impedance amplifiers
The Deco Audio TRANSFER Standard DAC has several inputs in the form of USB-B, S/PDIF coax (4x) and an optical one, aka Toslink, among others. The price of the device is pleasant: for £549, you can call it yoursDeco Audio.
