You do not require an additional DAC for output on Bluesound NODE or VAULT when using the analog RCA output. Bluesound NODE and VAULT come equipped with an inbuilt DAC supporting a minimum of 24 bit /192 kHz*.
If you choose to connect an external DAC with Bluesound's TOSLINK connection, please be aware of the Bluesound’s 24 bit / 192 kHz output capability. Some external DACs may not support this level of quality for TOSLINK connections.
- NODE 2/NODE 2i/VAULT 2i has a 32 bit /192kHz inbuilt DAC.
