â€œReference triode tube DAC â€ Ayon Audio is pleased to introduce the superb Skylla II DAC featuring a fully balanced digital and analog design. In its digital section, four Burr-Brown PCM -1704K DACs are arrayed in a true differential dual mono configuration. The differential gain stage is composed of two 6H30 high-current tubes per channel. The Skylla II DAC features a vastly overrated, high capacity power supply for the 6H30 analog output stage with tube â€œbridgeâ€ rectification, choke coupling, three oversized power transformers, two for the analog and one for the digital section. The Skylla`s sound is rich and detailed, highly transparent and holographic, the resulting sound field representing an complete, realistic reproduction of the recording, a life-like mirror-image of the original performance. The Skylla II DAC provides audiophiles with a new, exalted level of digital playback experience, comparable only to the best available analog sources.
