Rega dac-r-first-look-master Rega dac-r-back-panel

Description

The Rega DAC-R is a 16/20/24-bit at 32kHz to 192kHz digital to analogue
converter. Incorporating an enhanced version of the Rega designed circuit,
the DAC-R offers the highest possible resolution over all inputs including
fully asynchronous USB with the addition of remote functionality.

The DAC-R is housed in a custom aluminium and steel case and boasts
a pair of Wolfson DAC IC’s, three user selectable digital filters and one
isolated asynchronous USB, two isolated Co-axial inputs & two Toslink
SPDIF inputs
