Extremo DAC

The Extremo 192/24 DAC is the North Star Design's flagship digital-to-analog converter.
This unit is the result of many years experience of our R&D in digital and analogue research.
Each part of this DAC, from digital input to analogue output, is optimized by intensive listening sessions.
The Extremo DAC can be connected via S/PDIF or AES/EBU to any existing digital source like CD-player, DAT, CD-transport.
