About This Listing

Accuphase DP-81:
A phenomenal CD player and DAC combo for digital audiophiles!

The Accuphase DC-81, released in 1986 during the “Golden Era” of Japanese high-fidelity audio equipment, is an audiophile-targeting high-fidelity DAC featuring Accuphase's proprietary high-performance technology. It was designed to be paired with the Accuphase DP. -80 CD player. The DAC is a current addition type which can achieve the 16-bit theoretical limit by discrete configuration. The digital filters are L / R independent and 2x oversampling, with 121st-order composition. The low-pass filter is a discrete GIC-type 9th-order Butterworth active filter. In this unit, each bit signal of the digital filter output is appropriately transmitted (by a total of 34 transmitters, 7Mbit / sec) in the L & R channels and converted into an electric signal for the D / A conversion. As a result,There is complete electrical separation which eliminates noise and interference via conductors. The DC-81 features XLR balanced outs as well as two RCA outs (fixed and variable). It's the perfect match for the DP-80!

This unit work perfectly and have been thoroughly checked and tested by our professional technician, confirming their flawless operation. The sound quality is superb, as expected.
