The Wyred4Sound DAC 2V2 may share the same styling as its predecessors, but inside its all change. Based on the DAC-2, the new 2V2 version uses the latest ESS flagship ES9038PRO DAC chipset. This new series of ESS PRO Chips set a new benchmark in the industry with the highest dynamic range of up to 140db and -122dB total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N).

The DAC 2V2 features fully balanced circuitry, and offers hi-res PCM and 4x DSD-capability, and is equipped with a remote control. At the rear of the DAC are numerous digital inputs including Coax, Toslink, AES/EBU, USB, the USB and balanced input both supporting PCM files up to 32-bit/384kHz and quad DSD.
