Numerico DAC

Legendary Viva Audio experience
in digital domain.

Viva Audio Numerico DAC is designed and developed using an 8 channel ESS Sabre ES9038Pro DAC chip, where we connect 4 channels in parallel Mono mode.

Numerico DAC is encased in solid aluminum for stability and mechanical vibration control. It is painted with a special high-tech colour with the inherit ability to absorb emissions, thus limiting its interference with the DAC’s performance.

All internal connections are hand soldered using our special high-purity copper litz-like wire wrapped with natural silk.
