Nagra Classic DAC II

The new Nagra CLASSIC DAC II will be available from May 2023.


The CLASSIC DAC II is the new D/A converter unit for the CLASSIC range of Nagra products which includes Nagra CLASSIC PHONO, CLASSIC PREAMP, CLASSIC AMP and CLASSIC INT.

The Nagra CLASSIC DAC II features the same NADM (Nagra Audio Digital Module) digital engine used in our world-acclaimed HD DAC X and TUBE DAC, and accommodates all current high-resolution formats such as DSD 4x (256) and DXD. It will play high resolution with ease, but development will focus especially on the red book format, 44.1 kHz and 16 bit revealing amazing resolution and musicality for this still vibrant format.

In addition to the new digital engine, the Nagra CLASSIC DAC II features an improved integrated power supply while also allowing the option to connect to our external reference power supply, the Nagra CLASSIC power supply, for maximum performance.

The Nagra CLASSIC DAC II output stage features a discrete topology in pure Class A. It should not be overlooked that Nagra designers paid special attention to the selection of superior quality components, including individually selected and measured military-grade transistors.

The Nagra CLASSIC DAC II is the perfect digital interface to complement existing Nagra CLASSIC series systems while offering world-class performance for those who want to experience Nagra’s signature natural and realistic sound for the first time.
