Parasound Z Custom Series ZDAC V.2 Digital to Analog Converter

Z Custom is Parasound’s line of ultra-compact components for high-end audio where space is tight. Equally comfortable on a desk or in a rack, Z Custom products are at home wherever good sound is important. In a market filled with DACs, Parasound has set a new standard for performance and value with the help of acclaimed Danish digital experts Holm Acoustics. The ZDAC V.2 sounds more natural and less "digital" than DACs selling for far more because of its innovative design and high quality parts. Its unique re-clocking system preserves the original source audio data by eliminating jitter contamination that is picked up along the digital signal chain. To further improve sound quality the signal is up-sampled to 422kHz. The ZDAC v.2 is equipped with a dedicated high quality current-feedback headphone amplifier based on the top grade Texas Instruments TPA6120. This superior design allows for an extremely high slew rate preventing odd order distortions which are responsible for listening fatigue. The headphone amp circuit was also designed with a low 10 ohms output impedance and high gain to drive headphones rated up to 600 ohms. We are confident you will be thrilled with what you hear when the Zdac v.2 is mated with any of your preferred cans.

Digital Inputs

The ZDAC V.2 uses a Premium Analog Devices AD1853 24-bit/192 kHz Digital to Analog Converter IC which accepts Optical COAX signals up to 24-bit /192 kHz and USB signals up to 24-bit/96 kHz. Connect to your Mac or PC via USB to your ZDAC V.2 without the need for drivers.

Volume controls on the front of amp

Volume Control

Choose between a fixed or variable output. Use the Front panel Main volume control and its variable analog RCA and Balanced XLR outputs to connect the ZDAC V.2 directly to a power amplifier. This eliminates the need for a separate preamplifier.
