The ODAC gets an Update

We are pleased to announce that we will be using the new & updated ODAC RevB boards in the EHP-O2Di and E-DAC. The new board will also be available on its own for DIY use and we will be offering a retrofit service for anyone who wishes to upgrade from the original board. It matches or improves upon all specifications compared to the original ODAC as well as having a couple of extra useful features and increased reliability.

The new ODAC RevB supports both 16 bit and 24 bit at all sample rates from 44.1kHz to 96kHz including 16 bit/88.2kHz using the SA9023 chip. In addition, the ODAC RevB can be connected to iPads using just the Apple Camera Connection Kit.

All performance measurements have been matched or improved upon with jitter seeing the largest improvement. Below is a full table of specifications:

Atratus II & III RCA Interconnects Launched!

A long time coming, we are very pleased to announce the launch of the brand new Atratus II and Atratus III RCA Interconnects! Prices start from just £59.99 and £89.99, respectively, for 0.5m stereo lengths.

These represent our mid-range and top-of-the-line RCA interconnects and have been carefully designed to fulfil our on-going philosophy of market leading sound quality at direct from manufacturer prices. Both are using the highly regarded KLE Harmony series RCA connectors – the Atratus II using the Copper Harmony and and Atratus III taking things even further with the Silver Harmony. You’ll also note the use of an extremely high quality OCC copper cable in the Atratus III RCA Interconnects, further pushing the boundaries of sound quality.

To learn more about the respective interconnects, please check out their individual pages on our website:

What is it?
The EHP-O2Di is an upgraded version of the current EHP-O2D. The innards remain the same with their award winning performance (see below for the latest comments from Hi-Fi Choice!) but we have modified the connections to make it a much tidier, neater and flexible amplifier for the home environment. The changes are as follows:

  • Power entry has been moved to the rear.
  • The front input jack has been removed and replaced by RCA sockets on the rear. These RCA sockets also double as the line out from the DAC section, allowing you to connect the EHP-O2Di to an external amplifier.

These changes incorporate the most commonly requested modifications we are asked about and, although fairly minor, will allow the EHP-O2Di to fit in to your set up much more naturally.

Hi-Fi Choice Review
Neville Roberts of Hi-Fi Choice has awarded the EHP-O2D/EHP-O2Di the Recommended badge and an excellent 4.5 Star rating (half a star off for not supporting 192kHz sampling rate!).

“The sound produced by the EHP-O2D is full and easy to listen to over a wide range of music. I do rather miss the 192kHz support, but this does not detract from an excellent performance with 88.2kHz abd 96kHz music.”

“The EHP-O2D is a superb all-rounder that represents excellent value for money.”

This backs up our belief that the EHP-O2D/EHP-O2Di really does offer some of the best performance possible (excluding at 192kHz of course!), especially considering the price.

Raspberry Pi & the E-DAC

We got a lot of enquiries about whether the Raspberry Pi and the E-DAC work well together. Based on customer feedback, we can categorically recommend the pairing, after hearing multiple reports that it is indeed a high performance combination and an excellent base on which to build a hi-fi system.

To get the most out of your Raspberry Pi/E-DAC pairing, why not try RaspyFi, a free software upgrade for your Raspberry Pi to improve the performance.

Atratus II 75 Ohm Coaxial Cable launched!

The Atratus II 75 Ohm Coaxial Cable is one of 3 cables to be launched today. It is our highest quality true 75 Ohm impedance digital cable, building on the developments made by its little brother which received the full 5 Star rating from Hi-Fi Choice. It is available from just £52.99 excluding delivery.

Its key feature is that the central conductor is formed from a continuously drawn strand of heavy gauge OCC copper. This is amongst the purest, highest grade copper available on the market and is key to extracting maximum performance for your digital set up.

It also boasts crimped, gold plated connectors and two layers of high quality shielding. To read the full specification of the cable, you can read its product page here.
