While the latest technological achievements promise to deliver ever-higher performance, their implementation often turns out to be disappointing.
Thanks to a fresh look, we have imagined new schemes to eliminate the multiple sources of signal alteration. In this perspective, 10 years of Research and Development have been dedicated to revisit all the stages of the sound reproduction chain.
The result: a faithful transcription of the artist’s message, rich, detailed and dynamic, with a lively presence that fully restores the emotion of the concert.
Reflecting their exclusivity, our devices rely on a pure design, featuring a CNC-machined aluminium front panel with integrated ball-bearing mounted rotary knobs.
Inspired by celestial gravity, the housing style stands out for the purity of its lines, letting aside any disturbing element.

LONGEVITY AND UPGRADABILITY
Best sonic qualities are nothing if they fade in time.
All components are carefully selected to keep optimal characteristics over time. For instance, every chemical capacitor used in our products withstands a minimum of 5000h of operation at 105°C, which translates to more than 40 years of continuous operation in typical operating conditions.
To remain at the cutting edge of technology and with a commitment to sustainable design, our products have been engineered to be upgradable. These updates will be available to current users once new options or enhancements are made available.
All our products come with a 3 years warranty.
MADE IN FRANCE
Our electronics as well as the mechanical elements of our products are entirely in-house developed. In order to guarantee the highest quality standards, their production is performed in France by carefully selected local suppliers.
The final assembly is carried out by ourselves in our workshop.
As part of our quest for performance, the software layer embedded in our products is also developed to measure by our team.

The B.dac is our reference D/A converter.
Its design is the result of a global reflection involving a search for perfection in the possible synergies between the best available components.
Its perfect balance and absence of coloration allow the B.dac to be integrated into any existing audio system. The recordings are sublimated, benefiting from an increased finesse no matter the musical style.
Full elimination of source jitter
The B.dac incorporates our patented SJR “Source Jitter Removal” technology. This unique process totally eliminates the temporal inaccuracies that are inherent to digital signal transmission. It provides the best possible D/A conversion, from every source.
Reflecting its exclusivity the B.dac relies on a modern and sleek design. The machined aluminium front panel integrates high quality ball-bearing mounted rotary knobs.
The B.dac features two distinct toroidal transformers: one designated for the digital domain, and another for the analog domain.
To prevent any risk of interference, there is one dedicated regulation per stage (DSP, clock, DAC, output stages, DC servo, etc.)
Carefully designed upsampling filters are a must have on any high performance DAC.
The B.dac makes use of a custom designed convolution engine implemented in a built-in DSP dedicated to this task. This permits to implement an in-house developed linear phase filter with reduced pre-ringing artifacts, preserving the transient response.
To keep the accuracy of the signal shape, low phase deviation filters are implemented. This results in preserving dynamics and micro-information.
