The Absolute’s control board is fully isolated from anything else operating in the device. It has its own power supply line and discrete circuit.
Please note the transformer used to power the Absolute’s microcontroller & display: what we use for this light task, it is found used as the main power transformer in many well-known ultra-high grade devices!
What makes the Absolute your DAC of final choice well into future, is the absolute quality of sound whichever the format you are listening to.
It is supremely revelatory, intense, and relaxing; it excites, enthuses, and comforts, all in one: in the words of one reviewer, the Absolute “plays gorgeous music”.
You are consistently transported you to the encoded musical event!
