The Phonitor xe is the ultimate standalone device for headphone enthusiasts who want the perfect solution without any compromises.
The Phonitor xe is the first Phonitor headphone amplifier which can be equipped with the brand-new DAC768.
This optional internal Uber-DAC qualifies the Phonitor xe to convert with outstanding sonic performance.
An audio resolution of 32 bits and PCM sample rates up to 768kHz as well as DSD up to DSD256 are the impressive numbers.
The analog side of the converter also is top-notch:
Like in the Director DAC & Preamplifier. the active Lowpass-Filter is built in a 120V-Voltair-Technology design. The Phonitor xe can be equipped with the Uber-DAC768.
With that installed, the available inputs are expanded by USB, AES/EBU, coaxial and optical digital stereo inputs.
The DAC768 converts PCM sample rates up to 768 kHz with 32 bits and DSD streams up to DSD256. It syncs automatically to the sample rate of the selected digital input.
Compared to the DAC192 the DAC768 adds DSD playback and supports higher sample rates for PCM signals. The bit depth is increased from 24 bit to 32 bit for an unparalleled dynamic range. The Current -To-Voltage as well as the Lowpass-Filter are both built in a 120V-Voltair-Technology just like it is done in the Director DAC & Preamplifier.
