DA-10- Portable Headphone Amplifier with USB-DAC

Denon's DA-10 portable USB-DAC and headphone amplifier delivers sonic performance on par with premium audiophile separates, in a compact package equipped with a high capacity 3200 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, for hours of listening enjoyment, anywhere on-the-go.

Universal Audiophile Playback of Digital Music Files and Streaming Audio

The USB-B input enables computer stored music files or streaming audio from internet music, video and film services to be processed and played via the DA-10 for the highest possible sound quality. The computer recognizes the DA-10 as an external soundcard, completely bypassing its own lower quality audio electronics. Any digital audio format that can be played from the computer’s own media player can be processed by the DA-10 – including MP3/MP4, AAC, ALAC, WAV and FLAC HD (up to 24 bit, 192 kHz) and DSD (in 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz resolution). Transmission of the digital audio stream from the computer to the DA-10 is in bit-transparent, asynchronous mode, to ensure a bit-perfect datastream for high definition Advanced AL32 Processing and High-Precision 32 bit, 192 kHz digital to analog conversion.

High Definition Signal Processing and D to A Conversion

Denon’s Advanced AL32 Processing and High-Precision 32 bit, 192 kHz digital to analog conversion delivers audio quality far in advance of usual high definition, wide bandwidth conversion techniques. Just as advanced Blu-ray players can deliver full HD video from standard definition DVD, the Advanced AL32 processor up-converts and up-samples all input signals to a 32 bit, 192 kHz high definition datastream, which is interpolated, using a highly advanced proprietary algorithm, to provide a full scale, accurate reproduction of the original sound recording. The Advanced AL32 processor is matched with a High-Precision 32 bit,
192 kHz D to A conversion (DAC) circuit to fully exploit the Advanced AL32 high definition processing. Quantization noise, inherent in standard resolution digital audio conversion, is rendered inaudible and digital processing and filtering artifacts are moved far beyond the range of human hearing, so as to reproduce the purist, highest possible quality analog output signal.

DAC Master Clock Design

A master clock design of exceptional accuracy has been placed immediately next to the DAC circuit, to provide the greatest accuracy in the D to A signal conversion and reduce to the absolute minimum timing anomalies in the conversion process – known as jitter – that are a significant source of distortion. The design features a low jitter oscillator to generate the clock signals. Two crystals – at 44.1 and 48 kHz – are incorporated, to generate the most accurate clock for incoming signals of any sample frequency (incoming signal sample frequencies being a multiple of one or other of the crystals – e.g. 192 kHz = 4 x 48 kHz; 88.2 kHz x 44.1 kHz). The effect is to ensure reproduction of a fully realistic and transparent stereo sound stage, with accurate localization of instruments and performers.
