The Micca OriGen USB audio DAC and preamplifier is a studio master grade digital audio playback device that supports high resolution PCM audio up to 24-bit/192kHz and DSD64 audio. Its powerful preamp and headphone amplifier makes the OriGen especially well suited in a compact desktop computer audio system together with powered monitors and headhpones. Use the OriGen to bypass a computer's sound card and unlock the full sonic potential of your music library.
The digital circuitry of the OriGen consists of a VIA VT1736 USB 2.0 High Speed 480Mbps audio controller and a Cirrus Logic CS4392 stereo D/A converter. This capable combination provides asynchronous decoding and conversion of PCM audio up to 24-bit/192kHz as well as native and DoP support for DSD64 (2.8MHz) audio. Advanced audio stream interface support includes both ASIO and WASAPI Push/Event output modes.
The analog section of the OriGen uses JRC NJM4556 op amps for voltage and current amplification, offering two gain levels of 5.6Vrms and 1.7Vrms output. The selectable gain design provides excellent drive capability into any downstream amplifier with enhanced signal strength to ensure low noise and low interference. The headphone outputs are similarly powerful, with only 0.5 Ohm output impedance and enough power to drive headphones with 16-600 Ohm impedance.
Starting with a steel tub chassis, the OriGen is capped with an anodized aluminum top plate and finished with a solid machined aluminum volume knob. The TOCOS sealed potentiometer used for volume control offers long operating life and a smooth weighted feel. The all-metal construction makes the OriGen exceptionally durable and helps shield against unwanted interference.
Hearing is believing, try the OriGen risk free with your own music. If you are not absolutely delighted with the OriGen's performance, simply return it for a refund.
