Digital Audio Streamer (DAS)
The Digital Audio Streamer with integrated DAC (DAS) is now configured as a Roon ready endpoint and offers hassle free connection to any Roon Core products. It incorporates CAAS Audio’s state of the art HDAC, iTrans and True Zero Feedback systems.
Roon is the most engaging, enjoyable way to browse your music.
Being Roon Ready means that CAAS Audio network players transparently discover and connect to Roon, with no network configuration, with bitperfect delivery of audio to your dac.
Together, Roon and CAAS Audio deliver the power, flexibility and performance benefits of networked audio, with the easiest setup and highest reliability available.
The DAS incorporates CAAS Audio’s bespoke, ultra linear, ZERO feedback, BJT Class A buffer stage designed to reduce THD, IMD and TIM while providing the cable and load drive capability .
iTrans - Intelligent Buffering & Low Jitter Data Transfer
All CAAS audio servers have been designed to produce the highest audio quality possible. In part this has been achieved through our custom 8 wire digital interface.
iTrans is a data buffering and ultra low jitter re-clocking technology that allows near perfect data re-clocking and bit perfect parallel line digital signal transfer. The iTrans transfer system allows vastly superior interfacing between the computer system with the parallel DACs, in comparison to standard S/PDIF or I2S interfaces.
HDAC - Hybrid Discrete Digital to Analogue Converter
The CAAS HDAC consists of two Monaural, 16Bit ultra high precision LASER trimmed R-2R passive ladder DAC networks that are matched to an accuracy far beyond discrete matched networks. These passive R-2R networks are then DC coupled to CAAS Audio’s bespoke monaural True Zero Feedback (TZFB) class A discrete buffer stage to produce a DAC with unprecedented realism.
