We have collaborated with the smart people from Cambridgeshire professional digital experts Prism Sound to give one lucky winner the chance to win a fantastic Callia headphone DAC preamplifier.
Alan Sircom reviewed the Callia in issue 139 of Hi-Fi+. He wrote, “In terms of technology, Prism goes with an ARM Cortex digital processor, but relies heavily on Prism Sound’s own circuit architecture and reclocking stages. The last is the deliciously named CleverClox hybrid phase-locked loop to act as clock recovery taken from either local or S/PDIF input.” He concluded the review with, “An honest, solid, and extremely accurate recommendation”.
Prism Sound have been building studio-grade A-D and D-A converters for more than 25 years and have built an enviable reputation for performance and technical excellence. Much of your favourite music and movie scores will have been recorded, mixed or mastered with Prism Sound professional A/D and D/A converters. Now with CALLIA, home users can enjoy true studio sound quality!
Here’s what Elton John’s producer Gus Dudgeon said about Prism Sound’s technology after the first remastering for CD of Elton’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”:
“The very nature of analogue recordings being transferred to vinyl demanded major compromises. With (Prism Sound) digital sound these constraints are removed, and the recordings can be heard much closer to the reproduction we had originally intended.”
The outstanding Callia would normally cost £1,794 including VAT, but thanks to Prism Sound, here’s how you can win your next super headphone DAC preamplifier!
