The Digital To Analog Decoder for Attentive Audiophiles
To commemorate DENAFRIPS’s 12 years of digital audio excellence, the VENUS II 12th Anniversary Edition features several performance enhancements at the components level that might not be visible by the naked eye but are certainly audible for the seasoned and trained audiophiles’ ears.FPGA DSP Module
– FIFO & Reclocking
Tuned Capacitor Bank
– Electrolytic + Film Caps [EVOX/WIMA]
R-2R Ladder Network
– True Balanced R-2R
– Hand-picked tight tolerance resistors
Silver DC Cable
– Twisted silver cable for power delivery from PSU to DAC Module
The VENUS II 12th is a true balanced, dual mono R-2R Ladder Network Arrays DAC. Each channel is equipped with independent high-speed FPGA to facilitate the digital signal decoding by means of 4 sets of 0.005% R-2R network. The choice of such design yields very small linearity error, high decoding speed, and low digital noise, not only to ensure that the audio signal is of very low distortion, but also to ensure a very low background music noise; allowing the listener to enjoy the true music with a quiet, black background.
All digital inputs are FIFO buffered and reclocked by the onboard TCXO (Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator). The excellent rejection of word-clock jitter makes DENAFRIPS DAC less reliant on the source equipment clock quality. VENUS II 12th can transform your consumer-grade computer, CDPlayer to high-end sound quality.
Enhanced PSU & Transformer
Redesigned Power Supply Module with Dual O-Core Transformers 80VA x 2
High-biased constant current delivery to the Digital and Analog circuitry via Silver Cable
Divide & Conquer
Encased PSU Box is shielded underneath the DAC Motherboard with an additional MU-Metal divider in between to enhance the electrical-interference rejection
Clean power equates to the foundation of good sound. A dedicated linear power supply unit, designed and encased in a 1.5mm thick metal alloy enclosure, can be found underneath the DAC motherboard, along with an MU-Metal divider in between.
The box-within-box design, not only does it eliminates the inherited problems of the dual box solution, it presents the details and attention DENAFRIPS put into the premium DAC design.
Beefy dual O-Core Transformers 80VA x 2 for Digital and Analog sections, Ultra-Low ESR, Long Endurance Reservoir Capacitors, and multi-stages super linear power supply, ensuring ultra-precision, low ripple power supply charging up DAC
The VENUS II 12th is the ideal DAC for attentive, critical-listening Audiophiles and Music Lover who value micro and macro details, great soundstage width and depth, and imaging, and is slightly warm for musicality. VENUS II 12th is a High-End DAC – probably one of the most critical components for High-Fidelity systems.
