THETA DIGITAL
SHIPS UPDATED GENERATION VIII SERIES 3 DAC / PREAMPLIFIER
ADDS SUPPORT FOR 176.4 and 192 kHz PROGRAM MATERIAL

Montebello, CA , July 15, 2011 - The most widely acclaimed manufacturer of highend audio components, Theta Digital, is introducing an enhanced DAC / Preamplifier to its range of US-designed and US-built products. Theta invented and introduced the first outboard DAC in 1987. The new Generation VIII Series 3 is the latest iteration in a series of DACs and incorporates a long list of enhancements that refine the clarity of the audio signal and deepen the sonic experience.

The Generation VIII Series 3 is a fully differential balanced DAC featuring custom-designed software-programmable digital filters feeding into two digital-to-analog converters per channel, one for each phase. Linear power supplies ensure clean power resulting in ultra-low noise. Theta's "Jitter Jail" technology eliminates most digital distortion. The Generation VIII Series 3 delivers the most accurate, welldefined, natural sound that digital technology offers.

The Generation VIII Series 3 adds a revised input board to the platform that allows Generation VIII users to take advantage of the latest state-of-the-art recordings now available with signals recorded at 176.4 kHz and 192 kHz.  

According to Jeff Hipps, Theta's head of sales and  marketing, "Improvements in recording quality drove the update to the Generation VIII.  Our owners simply demanded the ability to audition new 176.4 and 192 kHz material through their Theta systems."  

FEATURES:
- Supported sampling frequencies:  32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz, 192 kHz
- 5 digital inputs
- 1 stereo pair of analog inputs (single ended and fully balanced)
- RS-232 for external control from Crestron®, AMX®, etc.
- Can be slaved as an outboard DAC to Theta Digital's Casablanca III HD Music & Cinema Controller

The Generation VIII Series 3 measures 17 5/8" W by 5" H by 17 3/4" D. Weight is 35 pounds boxed.
