Mola Mola’s Tambaqui DAC is the perfect upgrade for owners of complete high end systems who want to retain the characteristic sound of their existing preamplifier whilst lifting their digital sources to another level. “Digital That’s As Good As Analogue.” Thanks to the addition of lossless digital volume control and being Roon Ready, it is also the ideal cornerstone of a minimalist audio system for music lovers who have moved on to digital but crave the full performance of the analogue original. This DAC, combined with a pair of Mola-Mola Kaluga monoblocks constitutes the finest digital replay chain available, irrespective of price.
“Analogue That’s As Good As Digital.”
Roon transforms the experience of browsing music. Artist photos, credits, bios, reviews, lyrics, tour dates, and composers are located automatically, then interconnected by links to build a surfable, searchable digital magazine about your music collection.
And Roon finds all the same links between your personal files and the millions of tracks available on TIDAL, so you can start with the music you know, then explore and discover new music from the world beyond your collection.
PWM DAC with 32-stage discrete analogue FIR output stage. Avoids “sigma delta” tones and “R2R” glitch and low-level linearity errors.
Asynchronous upsampling to 3.125MHz/32 bit. 7-th order noise shaper clearing 80kHz band. Each input rate has an optimized upsampling filter chain.
