The CEC BY 5 - D/A Converter - USB Sound System
32bit/384 kHz PCM, DSD 256/11.2 MHz

The new CEC BY 5 is a converter of the highest level, able to impose itself at the centre of the scene, listening to, whether you're playing music through a mechanical CD transport, whether you're listening to music files at the highest resolution in DSD-256 by connecting it to a Music Server or a PC, both in the case where the CEC DA5 is used to listen to in the headphones or as a digital control of the volume level (as a preamp).

The CEC-5 provides the inspiration and the sense of music thanks to his outstanding ability to play the music of liquid at high resolutions. The digital signals supplied from the mechanical transport are fully converted to an analog signal, without any distortion.

The D/A converter reference, the CEC DA5 operates as a USB DAC, high precision, compatible with the encoding formats PCM up to 384 kHz and DSD 256/11.2 MHz.

A operational amplifier high-performance allows for pleasant listening over headphones at high volume; while the ability to adjust the full level of output allows for use of the CEC-5 as the center of the audio system (operating as a real preamp).

Signal conversion from digital-to-analog is processed by the chip DAC ESS Hyper Stream ES9018K2M, which can support audio streams to 32bit - 384kHz PCM and 11.2 MHz DSD 256.

An exceptional channel separation and a wide dynamic range and result in being able to play music with an amazing breath and with a sound stage wide and deep.

The CEC-5 offers two different settings of the digital filter: "FLAT", a standard filter with an extremely linear frequency response up to 20kHz, and "PULSE", a filter with impulse optimized and free of oscillations, characterized by a roll-off longer delicate under 20kHz.

Digital Inputs

  • SPDIF: Balanced XLR, AES/EBU, Coax and Toslink are compatible with frequencies of up to 24bit/192kHz.
  • USB: Allows PCM to 32bit/384 kHz and Native playback of the file is DSD256/11.2 MHz.

Analog outputs

In our digital to analog converter are present in both the outputs traditional analog RCA, both connections to balanced XLR.

We recommend the use of connections balanced XLR, so that the circuit is balanced of the CEC BY 5 to be able to express the best of their sound characteristics.

Thanks to the adoption of an amplification circuit for the headphones, high-performance, the DA5 can also be used as a headphone amplifier without compromise.

The digital volume control can adjust the output level of the analog domain to digital. Adjustments are possible for the volume to -99dB up to 0dB without any deterioration of sound quality.

You can also connect directly to the CEC-5 amplifier power amplifier and/or speakers amplified, and adjust the volume through the supplied remote control: once the volume level has been set, it is stored even when the converter CEC-5 is turned off.

The LED display shows the status of the digital inputs, the sampling frequency of the input, and the condition of the filter chosen. You can set the brightness of the display on three levels, according to your listening conditions.

The listening tests carried out by the international journals, as well as the testimonials from our satisfied customers in all over the world, confirm that with the CEC DA5 we have reached our goal of the music: the music playing at its highest level.
