Tentlabs b-DAC mkIII PLUS
Because we selected the highly accurate oscillator of Tentlabs and are very satisfied about the quality in all aspects with the modifications we were curious about the of the shelf products of Guido Tent. We got the b-DAC on probation and are so enthusiastic about it that we'd like to present this subtle and musical Digital Analog Converter to you!
The b-DAC is not only sonically excellent, the finishing is very nice and the features of this DAC are unique!. An advantage of the b-DAC is that it can drive a power amplifier directly, a high-precision digital volume control can be turned on/off in the menu, like many other options can be found in the menu by using. Another great feature is the the b-DAC remote control, the IR codes can be learned by using your existing remote control!
