Notes Our main objective in designing the Paris digital line of products was to maintain the delicate balance between elegant design and optimal musical reproduction performance. Acheiving the sonic excellence of the Paris DAC250 required a carefull and clever mix of the its key elements. The design exercise was always validated agaisnt our interpretation of what real music should sound like and through comparisons with our reference analog systems.

The internal structure of the Paris DAC250 combines an optimally calibrated power supply stage, a digital to analog conversion board using the BurrBrown PCM1792, 24Bits/192Khz, proprietary fully discrete analog modules and a distinct wiring for the analog and digital signals. The chassis of the Paris DAC250 is built from medium density wood fiber material to minimise resonances. The hand polish high gloss laquer of this chassis is available in five different colors.

Oracle Audio has spent a great deal of efforts into making sure that the power supply circuit of the Paris DAC250 is a clean, stable and efficient power source. The digital to analog conversion circuit functionning with very low parasites in its power input can process the digital input signal more precisely and produces less errors and thus, less compensations of those errors. Similarly the fully discrete analog output modules of the Paris DAC250 can acheive their full potential working with a silent noiseless background. They can efficiently reproduce the harmonic structure behind every note with a very high dynamic contrast giving to the Paris DAC250 all its softness, finesse and musicality!

We offer two different models, the Paris DAC250 is featuring two independant analog modules with RCA and XLR analog outputs. This standard model offers XLR analog output for convenience as its signal comes from the same two discrete analog modules than the RCA output. The Paris DAC250 B is a fully balanced version involving four fully discrete independant analog output modules for reference level true balanced operation. The choice to offer two models was made to accomodate our customer’s needs for their specific system's application, single-ended versus fully balanced.
