This is a brand new Prism Audio Callia Reference Grade Stereo DAC, Headphone, and Pre-Amplifier.
Product Details: Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, CALLIA embodies the Prism Sound uncompromising approach to audio resulting in the most accurate and detailed DAC available.
Callia reveals the most minute nuance of any performance and is flexible in the face of a variety of genres. Hear your music the way it was intended.
AUDIO FORMATS CALLIA supports linear PCM in 2's complement binary coding and, using the "DSD over PCM" (DOP) protocol, DSD at the original bit-rate (DSD64) and also at 2 x the original rate (DSD128). DSD Files encoded as "DOP" may be played with both ASIO and WDM drivers.
Your computer, tablet or transport will commonly decode formats such as mp3 to PCM prior to transmission to the sound card, so these formats will typically be supported on your device in the same manner as they would be with another sound card.
On the S/P-DIF inputs, DOP can also be used, but only at the original DSD bit rate (DSD64) as these connections do not have enough bandwidth for DSD128.
The ASIO native DSD format is not currently supported.
PRISTINE SOUND QUALITY Callia makes no compromises on audio quality, ensuring you’ll experience music at home exactly as it was experienced by those who created it in the studio. Our heritage and unrivaled experience has allowed for the creation of a DAC of unparalleled sonic clarity.
