Venus is DENAFRIPS' 2nd-tier flagship DAC at a smaller size and price point but still carry a big sound. Venus adopted the technologies found in the flagship TERMINATOR such as using FPGA to control the 26-bit decoding by means of, 4 sets of 0.005% R-2R network in true balanced dual mono operation. All digital input are FIFO buffered and reclock-ed by CRYSTEK Flagship CCHD-957 FEMTO Clocks.
The chassis is made of massive aluminium plates, securely fastened with internal bracket and no visible sign of bolt from the front panel and top cover. The all-aluminium enclosure, double up as shielding and anti-resonance. Venus further enhanced and refined the linear power supply design of the Pontus with premium components. The power supply is encapsulated in a thick metal alloy, equipped with dual o-core transformers, completely isolated super linear regulator, multistages power supply for digital and analogue sections, ensuring low noise, high availability power supply to the DAC. The power supply of the dac is shield and isoloated from the R-2R network and signal paths. The Venus is indeed an audiophile's Godess!
