Description

The RD-100 is the latest addition to the Reference Series of products. This DAC however is not your ordinary DAC. It features true analog inputs and a volume control. The RD- 100 also uses the typical modular topology that is being used in other Vitus products.

Overall features:

1x USB input
1x Toslink optical input 2x RCA SPDIF inputs
2x AES SPDIF inputs
1x RCA analog input
1x XLR analog input

1x RCA analog output 1x XLR analog output.

Modules featured:

Masterclock Module
USB – Recieved module SPDIF – Reciever module SRC – module
D/A Converter module I/V Converter module
(1 per channel.)
Analog Stage module
(1 per channel.)

This modular topology offers a future proof product that can always be upgraded to the latest Vitus technology,  pushing the envelope of achievable sound quality.

When Vitus Audio designed the RD-100 they took advantage of the success of the SCD-010 technology. Optimizing every aspect of its design, they were able  to  fit the needed technology into the smaller chassis and match the lower price range of the Reference Series. Despite its lower price, the RD-100 pushes performance to the next level, even above the now discontinued SCD-010.

A unique feature of the the RD-100 is the inclusion of the well known Vitus attenuation system and two analog inputs. In other words, the RD-100 will not only serve as your DAC, but can also serve as a true line stage.  The analog inputs are kept in the analog domain and not converted to the digital domain ensuring the highest quality for your analog sources. When the analog inputs are selected, the full digital circuitry of the DAC is shut down to eliminate digital noise in the delicate analog signals.

Vitus has implemented an new version of its relay based volume control to complete the analog portion of the RD- 100. This makes the RD-100 a perfect analog line stage on top of its digital functions. The analog volume control is also functional when the digital inputs are used. The volume control in the RD-100 can be bypassed when the RD-100 is combined with an external line stage like the RL-101.

Analog Audio's Thoughts On The Vitus Audio RD-100 DAC/LineStage

Writing about Vitus Audio is like writing about Lexus or BMW. What’s not to like? The look, the feel, the build quality and most of all, the performance is rarely seen. When we acquired this famous Danish line, we knew we had a good product on our hands. What we did not expect was how good Vitus Audio was. A great component sounds…well, great. A Vitus product not only sounds outstanding, it takes all the other components along for the ride. In essence, not only is the Vitus RD-100 an outstanding product in its own right, it improves your entire system and brings your system performance to a whole new level.

If you are in the market for a world class DAC or line stage, please please please at least listen to the Vitus. You will be transformed. I guarantee it.
