DXD A/D conversion, DXD and DSD D/A conversion, 32 bits resolution, coaxial S/PDIF inputs,
single-ended analog inputs and outputs on gold-plated RCA females, IR remote control with HID
capability, external clock input with clock info output, phono EQ in digital domain, input gain 0dB
to 62dB, input impedance continuously settable 10 Ohms to 50k Ohms, same form factor of all Evo
Two products, can be powered by any 7.5V to 15V power supply, Evo Clock Two and Evo Supply
Two recommended.


The Evo PhonoDAC Two is a very high value-for-money digital/analog combo capable of
converting analog to digital up to DXD and DXD and DSD to analog.
Its bi-directional USB 2.0 Audio Class compliant port is natively supported (no driver needed) by
OSX and Linux. An ASIO-compliant driver for Windows is provided.
High precision, low-jitter clocks allow for exceptional detail resolution, maximizing the 32-bit
capability of the ESS Sabre ES9018K2M (D/A) and ES9102S (A/D)conversion IC’s.
The Evo PhonoDAC Two versatile analog input stage allows for setting it’s gain from 0dB to
62dB, allowing for any low-output cartridge to be directly coupled to it, as well as line-level sources
like CD players, tuners, tape decks, etc.
Input impedance may be set to any value between 10 Ohms and 50,000 Ohms, accommodating all
kind of cources.
The Evo PhonoDAC Two is capable of performing real-time, digital domain phono equalization,
using any of the 26 EQ curves provided with it.
Ancillary filters like anti-rumble, anti-hiss and MPX allow for best playback and ripping from
warped, scratched or worned records, as well as from cassette tapes or FM and AM broadcast.
The Evo PhonoDAC Two de-jitter feature allows for exceptionally good performance from coaxial
and connection.
The Evo PhonoDAC Two uses high quality polypropylene capacitors and a low-noise opamp in
the analog sections (input and output) for best sonic results.
The IR remote control allows for accessing all Evo PhonoDAC Two features (volume, balance,
muting, input selection and many other menu settings), as well as taking advantage of the HID
protocol to control the player on the computer without manually accessing the keyboard.
The Evo PhonoDAC Two can be powered by the stock wall adaptor in budget conscious setups,
while better performance can be obtained with a good power supply such as the Evo Supply Two.
