An audiophile seeking the pinnacle of audio excellence that is somewhat affordable would undoubtedly be drawn to the Merason Ruess DAC. This remarkable digital-to-analog converter stands out in the world of high-fidelity audio for its unparalleled craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology. The Merason Ruess DAC boasts exceptional audio clarity, thanks to its meticulously designed circuitry and top-tier components. Its ability to decode digital signals with remarkable precision and transform them into rich, analog soundscapes makes it a must-have for those who demand nothing but the absolute best in audio reproduction. The Ruess DAC's seamless integration into high-end audio systems and its commitment to delivering an uncompromising listening experience make it an irresistible choice for discerning audiophiles.


Input signal processing: The Reuss has one USB, one RCA, one Toslink and one AES input. The USB input is based on Amanero technology and ensures a low-jitter music signal thanks to two precise oscillators, which is then galvanically isolated by capacitive isolator components. The signals arriving at the other inputs are also galvanically isolated and de-jittered by means of transformers and capacitors. This guarantees that no external interference can affect the sensitive signal. Digital-to-analog conversion: The task of digital-to-analog conversion is performed by two 1794A converter modules from Burr Brown. For a 5 dB improvement in dynamic range, each channel has its own device. The analog current signal is elaborately converted into a voltage signal in a discrete setup, which is buffered in Class A technology and routed to the output. The Reuss is fully balanced, i.e. a total of four independent channels are implemented from the two converter modules to the output. Power supply: Each functional unit has its own power supply, and in total there are twelve of them. Two output channels each are supplied by a separate linear supply with an oversized transformer. Structure: The sound influence of components and circuit variants as well as various layouts were thoroughly tested in countless sessions by experienced listeners. This applies in particular to capacitors, voltage regulators, converter components, transistors, resistors, signal processing, I/V converters and output stages. Made in Switzerland: The manufacture of the housing, the front panel and the control knobs and the printing, component placement, assembly, commissioning and inspection are carried out exclusively in Switzerland.
