Anti-Mode X4

The new DSPeaker Anti-Mode X4TM preamplifier/DAC combines an uncompromising selection of audio electronics with more than a decade of expertise in acoustics and signal processing. It was designed with one purpose in mind: to elevate to a new high what is possible in stereo sound reproduction in the domestic environment.

Three high-end stereo digital-to-analog converters (DACs) are driving the primary, auxiliary, and headphone outputs. Combined with output range control and picking the best converters using an IC tester, the XLR outputs reach 126dB dynamic range and less than 0.0008% total harmonic distortion. Both primary and auxiliary outputs are active simultaneously for speakers and subs, available in both XLR and RCA. The signal of the primary output is also provided as optical and coaxial SPDIF.

Input connections are plentiful. The two stereo RCA and one stereo XLR analog inputs provide SNR+THD of -104dB. Whatever audio source you connect, the input range control selection allows you to gain full performance. Total of six SPDIF inputs and the USB Audio 2.0 input support up to 192kHz and DSD64 / DSD128 (on USB).
