Devialet ADH Core- Author:
Analog Digital Hybrid: The best of both worlds
Within the ADH® core, the two amplifiers operate in parallel: the analog amplifier sets the output voltage while the digital amplifiers provide most of the current. The ADH offers the best of both worlds: the power and compactness of digital and the quality of analog. An industry first, only from Devialet.
The best analog amplification
Freed from having to deliver power, the analog amplifier is made even more linear and delivers the best measured performance ever. The output impedance of the analog amplifier is for instance divided by 100 thanks to this hybrid architecture. Enjoy the best analog sound in the world.
"Magic Wire" DAC
Prior to the ADH® is found another major technological advance from Devialet: the "Magic Wire" DAC. The DAC (Digital/Analog Converter) is a crucial element of the signal path. It converts the music's digital signal (emitting from a CD, computer or any other digital source) into a ready-to-be-amplified analog signal. By choosing the DAC T.I. PCM1792 (24bits/192kHz), unanimously recognized as one of the world's best DACs, and by reinventing the way it converts its output current into voltage with the patented aforementioned "Magic Wire", Devialet has pushed its performance to a level never before achieved.
