Montebello, Calif. - Theta Digital has begun shipping a $1,995 12-channel AES/EBU digital output card for its flagship Casablanca III HD preamp/surround processor.
The balanced-output card enables connection to outboard digital-to-analog converters (DACs), such as Theta's Generation VIII Series 3, to improve performance. The card supports 24-bit/192kHz signals.
The card "adds flexibility to the platform and brings Casablanca III HD owners one step closer to the original signal," the company said.
The base price of the card is a suggested $13,745.
Theta is owned by audio-component supplier
