HYMALAYA Pro R2R DAC
Equivalent to two PCM1704K balanced connections – Hymalaya Pro R2R DAC, with the added support of a new FPGA algorithm and 0.01% precision resistors, add up to performance that surpasses the PCM1704 in every way, reaching a THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) rate of -6dB 0.0012%.
The HiFiMAN Serenade is a really powerful (4W @32 Ohm Balanced) Class A headphone amplifier with HiFiMAN’s own Hymalaya Pro R2R DAC architecture.
It plays all current audio formats up to PCM768/DSD512 and it is also a Roon Endpoint!
Serenade uses the legendary FET operational amplifier, with a discrete component LPF analog circuit that translates into detailed sound with high-precision, low-noise test indicators. The bold design of the whole signal path eliminates coupling capacitors, removing nonlinear distortion caused by electrolytic capacitors, leaving only pure, full range sonic output.
Class A Headphone Amplifier Circuit
The SERENADE amp circuit is based on a Class A design, supplemented by a precisely matched, fully discrete transistor amplifier circuit, so that the amp circuit inherits the noble tone of the Prelude Amp, for less than $3,000.
Transformer is the foundation of full-range sound
The 50W toroidal transformer is comprised of high-quality full-band iron core, combined with a large pond filter capacitor of nearly 30,000 microfarads and a multi-stage, multi-channel, low-noise, high-speed voltage regulator circuit, providing a pure and fast power supply for the SERENADE.
