DAC : an ex­pla­na­tion

Australian T3 - - WI-FI HI-FI -

Any­thing that con­verts a dig­i­tal sig­nal to an ana­logue one is a DAC. A tele­phone, for in­stance, is one; an ana­logue mic records your voice, it con­verts it to a dig­i­tal file which is sent down the tele­phone wires. In the case of hi-fi, a DAC turns your dig­i­tal au­dio file into the ana­logue sig­nal your speaker out­puts. The bet­ter – read: more ex­pen­sive – your DAC, the warmer, richer and “more hu­man” the sound that comes out of it.
