6 DAC QXR

A refined and elegant integrated amplifier with a long pedigree, the 6 DAC QXR is instantly impressive beyond its diminutive dimensions. Musically, it has been tuned and refined over decades to deliver outstanding precision, clarity and control of loudspeakers.

The 6DAC QXR has our new QXR digital card pre-installed, increasing the possible input resolution to 32bit/ 768k (DSD 512) through the USB connection. Using our QXR DAC, we have also introduced a new ‘reclocking’ process across all the digital inputs, to reduce jitter and lower the noise floor, as well as allowing a much shallower filter slope than ever before, virtually eliminating phase interference in the audible band (an approach only previously possible with noisy FPGA DAC solutions).

6DAC Design Philosophy

The 6 DAC QXR and its sibling the 82 DAC QXR are conceived to be the hubs to your entire audio system. The aim was usability, simplicity and refinement. Supplied with the full iR14 remote control unit, it’s possible to connect almost every analogue and digital source through this highly competent unit.

The bi-wire output of the 6 DAC QXR gives a full 57 Watts into 6 ohms. The power supply is a high current design that uses two transformers to completely separate the digital control stages from the sensitive audio signals – an approach usually reserved for pre/power combination amplifiers.

We use ESS-based silicon in the DAC, but with some very clever noise shaping and filter processing. QXR allows input resolutions up to 32bit/ 768k. We have also introduced a new ‘reclocking’ process across all the digital inputs. This substantially reduces jitter and lowers the noise floor, as well as allowing a much shallower filter slope than ever before. This process virtually eliminates phase interference in the audible band (an approach only previously possible with noisy FPGA DAC solutions).
