    Atlantic DAC - Incoming



    I've been going back and forth with Norman on the new Atlantic DAC. I decided to order one this morning.

    I pimped it out with:

    Single Ended (because R2R is only available on SE, not balanced)
    R2R
    Tube Rectifier
    DSD512

    $5775 + shipping.

    I also ordered the Lampizator Power Cord and USB Cable to try out.

    The Atlantic DAC uses Direct Heated 4P1L pentode tubes running in triode mode.

    Tube rectifier? That's a surprise. I didn't think that was an option.

    Eager to hear your feedback.

    I am still waiting to hear one myself! Looks very promising.

    Lukasz said it will be an entirely parallel range to the DHT L7 type Dacs...so Bal/Preamp/tube or SS recti/and chipless DSD512 versions will all be available.

    Did he share the reasons for creating a parallel range? Was it to offer a choice between DHP vs DHT? And, wouldn't this potentially cannibalise the 7 series sales? Initially, the Atlantic was intended to be offered with no options. Thanks.

    Had I known the tube rectifier was an option I might have sprung for that myself. The ss version is still very good and is easily better than the L4 I had.

    The Atlantic runs so cool I can literally hold on to the tubes and its only warm to the touch. I've never heard a B7 or GG in my system so it will be interesting to see what Mike thinks of it compared to them.

    No he didnt...but he seems excited by its value proposition and is a different diund to the dhts.
