The Gold Standard...

The LampizatOr Golden Gate 2 DAC represents the next generation of our universally praised Golden Gate DAC. This DAC expands upon the already over the top Golden Gate execution to add very meaningful upgrades including:

  • Redesigned PCM Engine
  • DSD 512 (8xDSD) Support
  • Auto-switching between formats
  • A revised power supply scheme
  • Revised tube heating scheme
  • Much improved volume control implementation
  • Custom boutique footers from STACORE
  • Proprietary AC filtration circuit
  • Revised grounding scheme

    And much, much more.

  • The improvements over the Generation 5 Golden Gate have been described as "profound" and "hallucinogenic" in nature.
