Quad Link D-1 is the first dedicated DAC from Quad with USB/SPDIF interface and support for sampling frequencies from 32kHz to 192kHz, the perfect partner for enjoying music from PC or Mac with your Quad hi-fi, amplifier or active speakers. With the increased popularity of computer audio as a source, a high quality DAC is essential to enjoy the very best from high quality or lossless WMA files and FLAC files.
This DAC is USB 1.1 and 2.0 compliant and no custom USB drivers or software programs are required. In addition to its own internal state-of-the-art DAC, it can also be used as a USB to SPDIF interface to use inbetween your computer and any other DAC that doesn't include a USB input.
The main purpose of the D-1 is to offer high quality decoding of your computer based music into an analogue signal you can use with traditional components, something which it does exceptionally. This DAC is optimized for use with USB and therefore Quad have fitted a USB input only. For the time time and effort it takes to collect and store high quality files on computer, such a high quality DAC makes this seem all the more worthwhile.
