Audio-gd products are design and tested based on the AP SYS-2722
specifications (The top-drawer professional equipment in world)
Since 28th of March R2R 11 includes
new updated firmware .
The update removes the "pop" sound
while switching to the PCM signal.
The customers who bought unit after
28th March do not require firmware update.

Pros and cons of R-2R DAC
1.R-2R will not convert the clock signal into the output
2. R-2R design is not sensitive to jitter as Delta-Sigma
D/A which is much more sensitive to jitter.
3. The output signal is much more precise compared to
1.THD today is extremely low with Sigma Delta chips; R2R
ladders have good THD but nos as good as Delta Sigma
2. Glitches and accuracy of the ladder resistors are very
difficult to avoid and require complex technology to resolve it.
R2R 11 CHARACTERISTICS
•R2R-11 are a breakthrough of discrete R-2R
designed ladder dac¡¦s. Audio-GD is the first in the market offering
high performance discrete R2R in this price-range.
•Two pcs DA 8 modules equipped with ultra-high speed CPLD processors
to correct the discrete resistor ladder. Unique parallel processing
to achieve superb performance .
•Analogue section design based on Audio-GD¡¦s ACSS current driven
technology, fully discrete transistors amplifiers.
•Double stages ultra-low noise high speed power supplies offers a
musical and black background and transparency .
•Built in Amanero combo 384 USB interface. Amanero offers high sound
quality and great format compability.
•True NOS design. NOS is less sensitive to jitter and offers neutral
sound quality .To avoid the digital artifacts, a uniquely designed
noise rejection processing technology is applied.
•Native DSD support. no switch applied between the DSD and PCM
decoder outputs to avoid negative effect on sound quality.
•Built with highest quality components: all resistors are KOA /
Vishay low tolerance resistors , silver tin soldering for all
parts on board and ALPS 27 volume potentiometer .
You can chose between Neutral or Warm sound
(Jumper setting) according to your personal taste.
Sound quality differencies
between R2R 11 and NFB-11:
The differencies between those units are only in tonal quaities
NFB-11 sound is detail, dynamic, controled but not
bright or hash.
R2R 11 has Smooth, coherent and analoguesound quality
and has no emphasise on any frequencies in audio spectrum
E.g : You can image the NFB11.28 is like a highly
defined digital photo but the R2R 11 is more like real oil painting.
If you are a new audiophile , you should go for the
NFB11.28 over R2R 11, NFB11.28 has modern sound quality may better
fit for new audiophile.
