The Standalone ODAC is a reference grade digital-to-analog converter designed by NwAvGuy and YoyoDyne Consulting. ODAC can be paired with any headphone amplifier, pre-amplifier, or stereo system.
The ObjectiveDAC (ODAC) is a digital to analog converter designed by NwAvGuy and Yoyodyne Consulting, which achieves reference grade audio performance. Complete benchmarks can be found at NwAvGuy's OAC Release Article.
The Standalone ODAC is ready to use in its own aluminum case: ODAC can be paired with any amplifier! Objective2 owners can use the Standalone ODAC without modifying their existing amp.
ODAC features a 3.5mm line level output jack, common to portable headphone amplifiers. No performance loss occurs with RCA input devices using a 3.5mm-to-RCA Cable. As with any DAC, an amplifier is required!
ODAC accepts digital input via USB and provides a reference quality, line-level audio signal to any amplifier.
Standalone ODAC can be used on the go with most Android and iOS devices. No power adapter required.
You'll enjoy ODAC's 24-bit audio. Impressive dynamic range, low jitter, and low noise figures give perfect clarity.
