Hifi Sound for your cafe or bar – using a DAC
We are in the process of testing out outboard DACs on bar sound systems. It’s a little device that’s connected to your computer via USB, the audio cable is connected from the DAC to your amplifier. The digital to analogue conversion is done within the DAC which has superior circuitry as compared to the DAC within your computer. The theory is that this will result in an increase in sound quality as compared with the usual “plug it into the headphone socket” mode of operation. Were testing the Optoma Nuforce udac 3 as shown in the photo, will report back soon on the results.
