PC peripheral manufacturer SteelSeries has introduced a new audiophile-grade, dedicated high-fidelity USB DAC and amplifier to its range in the form of the GameDAC. Specially created for gaming enthusiasts the GameDAC transforms any PlayStation 4 or PC into a high-performance audio source by bypassing the low fidelity, poor quality DACs found in typical console controllers, USB headsets and PC sound cards. The SteelSeries GameDAC is now available worldwide priced at $129.99 or €149.99 depending on your location.
“We are diligent when it comes to getting user feedback and looking at what the community has to say about our products, so that we can then improve the performance where it is needed,” said Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO. “Providing GameDAC as a standalone product and opening it to work with any headset is a great example of how we here at SteelSeries can quickly provide superior products to gamers.”
When combined with the flagship Arctis Pro headset, the GameDAC the system creates the “first complete high fidelity audio system” says SteelSeries. The GameDAC is powered by the ESS Sabre DAC and amplifier offering 121dB of dynamic range and -115dB Total Harmonic Distortion and Noise.
“As gaming’s certified first Hi-Res Audio DAC, it ensures users hear high-fidelity 96 kHz / 24-bit audio at its purest full resolution with no downsampling. The power of the ESS Sabre chip inside makes bass sound tighter, individual sound effects more distinct and with the support of DTS Headphone:X 2.0, creates pin-point accurate positional cues.”
