The Nagra CLASSIC DAC II, features the same NADM (Nagra Audio Digital Module) digital engine employed in both our world-acclaimed HD DAC X and TUBE DAC, and accommodates all current high-resolution formats such as DSD 4x (256) and DXD. It will play high resolution with ease but particular development focus on red-book format, 44.1kHz 16 bit reveals striking resolution and musicality for this still vibrant format.

The Nagra CLASSIC DAC II output stage features a discreet topology in pure class A. Not to be overlooked, Nagra designers gave particular care to the selection of superior quality components, including individually measured and selected military-grade transistors.

In addition to the new digital engine, the Nagra CLASSIC DAC II features an improved, built-in power supply while also allowing the option to connect to our external reference power supply, the Nagra CLASSIC PSU, for ultimate performance.

The Nagra CLASSIC DAC II is the perfect digital front end to complement existing Nagra CLASSIC series systems while offering world-class performance for those who wish to experience Nagra’s hallmark natural, lifelike sound for the first time.
