ELAC Alchemy DDP2

ELAC Alchemy DDP2 is a high-end pre-amp/DAC/streamer at a great price!

The ELAC Alchemy DDP2 combines three components in one elegant piece of gear to give you the highest-quality digital-to-analog converter, preamp and digital streamer we know how to make. Then we combined it in a single chassis only 1U (1.75 inches) high. The preamplifier offers maximum flexibility, while incorporating DAC and streaming functions to make the DDP-2 the centrepiece of your digital system.

ELAC Alchemy DDP2

ELAC Alchemy DDP2 is a high-end pre-amp/DAC/streamer at a great price!

The ELAC Alchemy DDP2 combines three components in one elegant piece of gear to give you the highest-quality digital-to-analog converter, preamp and digital streamer we know how to make. Then we combined it in a single chassis only 1U (1.75 inches) high. The preamplifier offers maximum flexibility, while incorporating DAC and streaming functions to make the DDP-2 the centrepiece of your digital system.

For digital sources, there are two optical (TosLink) and two coaxial (RCA) S/PDIF inputs, one AES/EBU (XLR) input, a USB Type-B port for connection to a computer, and two Inter-IC Sound (I2S) inputs (one five-pin mini-DIN, one HDMI) for connection to CD transports with I2S outputs. With I2S, the audio and clock data are carried on separate lines, so the interface is inherently jitter-proof. I2S is used in CD players as the internal interface between the player’s transport and DAC sections; Audio Alchemy pioneered its use as an external interface.

The DDP-2 also has an Ethernet port, and built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The antennas are internal, which helps maintain the component’s unusually low profile of 2”. The DDP-2 doesn’t support advanced Bluetooth codecs, only the standard SBC format. When I streamed high-resolution files from my LG G7 ThinQ smartphone to the DDP-2, the sound was more muffled and compressed with Bluetooth compared to network playback.
