Why does the LINK II/Cobalt combination sound so good?
Most DACs have a dedicated PSU and heavy digital filtering circuitry. These features are specifically useful when using a computer as the source because of the noise generated but each component adds its own sound character. The Cobalt is a minimalistic design due to its size. When it is fed with a super clean digital source and power, it sings. The analogue path is short and sweet; it does not add colouring sound characteristics like other DACs. When streaming through the LINK II, there is no need for a DAC to have heavy digital processing or filtering. The LINK II has power circuitry and ethernet input synchronised to the USB audio clock (which also re-clocks any USB input), an ultra-low noise linear regulated power circuit and a USB audio optimised output that provides jitter free playback. Simply put, the LINK II provides the cleanest possible digital signal for the Cobalt’s pure signal path to process into an analogue output that you can hear.Read Less
