    Leema Acoustics DAC / Pre-Amplifier

    Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

    Digital to analogue conversion is a discipline that, on the face of it, looks to be a simple number-crunching exercise. Yet, as in all things audio, the devil is in the detail. Chief among the gremlins is time, which if not precisely regulated, causes temporal distortion (jitter) in the digital signal and ultimately manifests itself as actual noise and distortion in the resulting musical signal.

    Uniquely, Leema’s design team has been involved with digital audio in both music recording studios and movie sound stages, since its commercial introduction in the early 1980s. This gives us a wealth of experience when designing DACs for audiophile use, technically at the very limit of what is achievable but most importantly, warm, detailed, musical, and natural.
