Alchemy Series DDP-1 Preamp / DAC / Headphone Amp

Alchemy Series DDP-1 Preamp / DAC / Headphone Amp

In an attempt to make our digital world a better sounding place, we set out to create the highest quality Preamp/DAC/Headphone Amp that could deliver exceptional, world-class sound for under $10,000. The result is the DDP-1, a three-in-one powerful all-analog preamplifier, DSD-compatible digital-to-analog converter with dual digital signal processors and a headphone amp, all housed in one compact machined-aluminum chassis for under $2,000.
