DSP-based crossover, streaming-enabled 32-bit preamplifier and ultra-performance, 8-channel DAC
We believe in active crossovers as the future of quality audio. The vast advantage in flexibility unties the hands to the designer, allowing to focus on the acoustic side of the audio chain design, use speakers in wider range of frequencies and combine speakers which couldn't be used together with traditional passive crossovers. Maybe it's also time for your crossovers to leave the iron and copper age and enter the age of silicon.
Graphical user interface by MiniDSP lets you set the crossover comfortably from a computer connected over USB, while the computer is not needed for further operation. Advanced DSP features like custom biquads and FIR filters allow you to address room correction and other complex DSP operations.
DAC8 DSP is equipped with Raspberry Pi running Volumio, a popular open-source network player. Volumio can take your music from USB, Network Storage, streaming services like Spotify, Tidal or Qobuz and act as a DLNA Player or Airplay receiver. Raspberry Pi is operated in slave mode, avoiding its internal jitter.
Analog topology by Okto Research employing high-speed fully-differential operational amplifiers results in exceptionally low harmonic and intermodulation distortion. Our approach to power supply design renders extremely clean analog output, free of undesirable RFI and with undetectable level of mains harmonics. Measurements below were taken with the Rohde & Schwarz UPV audio analyzer.
From CNC machining to PCB assembly, Okto Research products are built for you in the heart of Europe
Practical, reliable, beautiful. While DAC8 can learn commands from any remote, we recommend the original Apple Remote.
