Teac America

Teac America announced their Reference 01 Series at CES 2012 which includes the UD-H01 Universal DAC ($549.99), A-H01 Stereo amplifier and the DS-H01 Docking station for your iOS devices. Each of the products in the Reference 01 line have their own DAC (even the amp) so you don't need to have them all even though you know you might want to.

The UD-H01 DAC sports 32-bit/192kHz Dual D/A Converters (BurrBrown 1795) and accepts inputs up to 32-bit/92kHz through any of its three inputs (Asynchronous USB, S/PDIF Coax/Toslink). The A-H01 amp also has its own 32-bit/192kHz capable DAC and five inputs (Asynchronous USB, S/PDIF (Coax and Toslink), and 2 line level). The DS-H01 docking station's DAC maxes out at 24-bit/192kHz but its worth noting it takes the digital data from your iOS device bypassing Apple's rotten Core (audio).

I hope to be hearing more from the Reference 01 Series in-house and will post the rest of the pricing information as soon as I get it but I can say that each of these devices is well under $1,000.

Nifty and restrained --- Micro components such as the old McCormack Audio Micro and Pro-Ject Box models have always appealed to me. Looking forward to learning more about these from TEAC.
