Description

The Atoll DAC300 DAC is the most ambitious converter from the francophone manufacturer. It takes up the aesthetic and finish of the “Signature” products of the manufacturer.

ATOLL DAC300: FRONT PANEL

On this DAC300, we find a beautiful front panel made of black or natural brushed aluminium, with curved edges.

In the middle of this one, there is a low-power consumption OLED screen. It gives source information, and the sampling frequency of the listened track as well.

To the right and left of the front panel, there is an on/off selector and a source selector. A 3.5 mm Jack headphone output is located on the left side of the display.

ATOLL DAC300: BACK PANEL

At the back of the DAC300, there is a plethora of connections!

There are 9 digital outputs: 3 SPDIF in RCA format, 3 optical Toslink, 1 USB, 1 AES/EBU in XLR and 1 Bluetooth.

The RCA asymmetrical outputs are doubled by XLR symmetrical ones. Atoll added to these 2 coaxial and digital outputs.

ATOLL DAC300: INSIDE PART

Once the cover is removed, there is N/A conversion chip of a professional origin: the SABRE ES9038 (32 bits/768 kHz). It is able to deal with information in PCM up to 768 kHz! It is associated with an ultra-high precision low Jitter clock.

Note that the SPDIF inputs can support the PCM up to 192 kHz and the USB-B can convert the PCM up to 768 kHz, and the DSD 64, 128, 256 and 512!

The output voltages are symmetrical, as well as the power supply of the output audio stages (3 low-noise transformers).

Atoll uses 12 independent voltages regulations. The output stages use discreet components, with no zero-feedback and class A polarized.

All of the connecting capacitors are MKP technology and the high frequencies capacitors are silver Mica technology.

ATOLL DAC300: TEST AND LISTENING

We connected it to the CD transport of the manufacturer, the Atoll DR200 Signature, and to the small Bluesound Node 2i network player.

In both cases, the restitution impressed us by its transparency and absence of coloration. On HD Qobuz files, we felt like we had removed a cloth in front of our Hi-Fi speakers.

The instruments are much more clear and their placement is completely evident. The sound stage is precise and very spacious. The dynamic is remarkable and the tempo is entirely controlled.

We also notice that the mixing effects or hall ambiances are much more present, that gives a better realism on concert recording.

The silences are perfectly respected and the least signal is processed with nuance and fineness. The bass is particularly articulated and dynamic, clearly favoring the realism of the restitution.

The Atoll DAC300 DAC is a real success and will delight the most demanding music lovers who want to significantly upgrade their digital sources. And its price is very competitive towards a competition that generally does not offers as much versatility and musicality!
