Asynchronous SPDIF to I2S signal transfer

In order to correct timing and data speed transfer errors the TC-7535 uses a asynchronous buffer with a length of 1024 bits to take care of time period related errors.

Direct Coupled Line Output Stage

This allows the Caiman SEG to operate down to 1Hz. The Caiman SEG is therefore also suitable for DVD audio application, which can go down to 5Hz or lower.

High Current Class A-B headphone circuit

The Caiman SEG headphone amplifier circuit is designed to drive even the latest high-end headphones and reproduce musical detail that these headphones are capable of. A generous signal headroom overhead, low noise circuitry, and high output current ability are key factors that make the headphone output on the Caiman SEG a major talking point with existing owners.

LED dimming during music playback function

The Caiman SEG has a LED dimming function that can be set to operate when there is music playing. So that way you can make sure that no LED noises can bleed into the sound.

12 Volt power supply option

Due to the highly efficient design and low energy requirement placed on the power supply, the Caiman SEG is capable of operating from a 12Volt battery source. The Caiman is also an extremely energy efficient DAC. It can therefore be powered by not only its own 12V power supply, But also by alternative 12V sources of power such as batteries and solar cells. The basic DAC includes a desktop power supply. Power supply upgrades are recommended.

DC Linearizer Low Noise Filter

External DC power supplies are a known source of RF noise. Our own unique DC Linearizer circuit transforms almost all of that RF noise into a clean DC voltage. The result is then fed to a Low Drop Out regulator circuit. The result is a crystal clear and warm analogue sound with excellent musical detail.

Low jitter Crystal controlled receiver chip

The Caiman SEG uses a crystal controlled receiver with one of the lowest jitter performances possible from a receiver chip. At 50ps few other DACs can match or surpass the Caiman SEG in terms of jitter rejection.  

Simple Analogue Filter Circuit

There has been much debate as to how much damage is done to the audio signal by the various digital and analogue filtering networks that are found in a DAC design, and whether filters contribute to grainy high frequencies. The technology used in the Beresford Caiman SEG relies instead on a simple HF analogue filter that operates outside any feedback circuit and outside the audio spectrum. This makes the Caiman SEG less prone to anti aliasing filter residues and noise, and produces a far cleaner and detailed treble response.

Up to 32 Bit and 768fs oversampling

The current range of high-end consumer DACs chips go up to 32 bit, but only 384kHz oversampling. The Caiman SEG DAC is capable of up to 768kHz performance.
