Pre Box RS Digital takes the all features of DAC Box RS and adds a linear line preamp with both solid-state and tube output stages for you to choose between. A pair of Texas Instruments PCM1792 DAC chips are used in a dual differential mode to achieve ultimate fidelity. As a selectable feature, a second PCM5102 DAC chip from Texas Instruments is built-in and handles 32bit/384kHz. A high-class headphone output with selectable impedance is also implemented and meets the demands of most headphones on the market. All told, Pre Box RS Digital delivers three-dimensional soundstaging, a wealth of micro-detail and enticing resolution that’s sure to impress digital music lovers.
