AAVIK D180 / 280 / 580 Digital/Analog Converter

Analogue signature from a world of digital sources
The ultimate goal in developing our separate DACs has been to transfer the digital signals into a natural, harmonious, yet, dynamic music experience without losing any of the enormous amount of information contained in the digital source. To reach this goal, the Aavik engineers have been extremely fastidious in selecting the electronic components and have spared no effort to exploit any opportunity for acoustic improvement.
