TEAC UD-503 Dual-monaural USB DAC that supports 11.2MHz DSD with built-in fully-balanced/parallel-unbalanced headphone amplifier

The TEAC UD-503 takes its dual-mono architecture and a high quality headphone amp with balanced/unbalanced outputs from the hugely popular UD-501.

This dual-mono circuitry isolates the left and right circuits from the power supply to the output stage. An integrated digital isolator prevents digital noise interfering with the power supply. The unit can be used as a preamp when matched with a power amp and active speakers and the addition of analogue RCA inputs allows partnering with legacy components.

The High Current Line Driver supports single-ended headphone output along with balanced and Active GND modes too.

  • USB DAC that supports 11.2MHz DSD and 384kHz/32-bit PCM
  • Dual-monaural circuit structure used from the power supply to the digital and analog sections
  • Both left and right channels have their own high-end AK4490 DACs, which are made by Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation
  • Two high-capacity toroidal core power transformers—one each for left and right channels
  • Isolation circuit that completely separates the digital and analog sections electrically
  • 4 TEAC HCLD buffer amplifiers, which are current-enhancing output buffer circuits, are used for the line amplifiers
  • Up-conversion to formats up to 12.2MHz DSD and 384kHz/32-bit PCM using an FPGA (programmable IC) that utilizes a fluency function
  • Two types of DSD filter and four types of PCM digital filter, as well as an OFF mode
  • 10MHz external clock input supported (available during USB asynchronous transmission)
  • Two high-precision internal clocks—one each dedicated to 44.1kHz and 48kHz signals (available during USB asynchronous transmission)
  • One pair of RCA analog unbalanced inputs
  • Volume output can be set to fixed, fixed +6dB or variable for the one pair of XLR analog balanced outputs and one pair of RCA analog unbalanced outputs
  • XLR jack polarity can be set (2 HOT or 3 HOT)
  • TEAC QVCS high-precision volume circuit
  • Large digital volume display with excellent visibility and remote control with one-button operation of various functions
  • OELD display shows input signal type and various settings (with 3-level dimmer and off functions)
  • Fully-balanced drive headphone amplifier with discrete construction and maximum output of 700 mW + 700 mW
  • Headphone amplifier can be switched among 3 drive types: unbalanced, balanced and active ground
  • Digital inputs on the back include one USB, one coaxial and one optical
  • Combined coaxial mini/optical mini digital input connector on front is convenient for digital input from portable devices
  • Low power consumption design and automatic power saving function meet modern expectations
  • The full-metal body realizes both vibration control and elegant style in an A4-size body that enables placement on a desktop
  • TEAC original design for three-point support using pinpoint feet with attached bases
  • Compliant with RoHS
