Swiss high-end audio firm, Audio Technology Switzerland SA, announces the High End 2023 Munich show official world debut of the Nagra Classic DAC II.
Nagra’s newest digital offering, the Classic DAC II, features the same NADM (Nagra Audio Digital Module) digital engine employed in both our world acclaimed HD DAC X and TUBE DAC, and accommodates all current high resolution formats such as DSD 4x (256) and DXD. Other highlights include an output stage featuring discrete topology in pure Class A and an improved built-in power supply along with the option to connect a Nagra external reference power supply, Classic PSU, for ultimate performance.
The balance of Nagra’s Munich system will be comprised of a Nagra 70th Anniversary Reference Turntable, Nagra Reference MC phono cartridge, Nagra’s upcoming HD PHONO stage, HD PREAMP, HD AMP monoblocks, Nagra IV-S tape machine and Nagra VII Anniversary Edition digital recorder all feeding a pair of Wilson Audio Alexx V speakers combined with a pair of Wilson Audio LoKe subwoofers. Cabling by Shunyata, racks and amp stands by Modulum.
In addition to demonstrations of this world class system, Nagra will present “Meet the Expert” sessions interspersed throughout the show days featuring industry notables giving presentations from their particular perspectives supplemented with relevant musical demonstrations.
The highlight of the “Meet the Expert” presentations will surely be that of Grammy award winning guitar legend Al Di Meola. On Thursday at 14:30 Mr. Di Meola will play selected portions from both the acclaimed album “Friday Night in San Francisco” featuring fellow guitar greats Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin, as well as the recently released follow up LP “Saturday Night in San Francisco”. He will offer commentary, and anecdotes about the music, the performances and the recordings. This is a rare opportunity to gain “insider” insight into a recording that can be found on the shelves of music lovers and audiophiles the world over.
Nagra is exhibiting in room F 130.
