Pacific was for 4 years on top of our lineup, as so called flagship. The invisible DAC. It has no sonic signature. It does not get in the way, between you and the music. In the room it can not be seen, what we see is merely a reflection in the polished 24ct gold. The reflection of our room. Our world. The light around us. The gold finish is not a glittering gimmick - it is the most durable protection money can buy, beats any lacquer or paint. The Pacific DAC will work for decades, and those who inherit it, will still admire the golden look.
Our Lampizator R&D laboratory spent 10 years refining one product - with an obsession of good sound in mind - the DAC. We have arrived at this design as the culmination of that research efforts. In average we prototyped one new DAC per week. Listening to it proves, that it was well worth it. If it could only look as good as it sounds!
Pacific has all the elements that constitute an ultra audiophile product: zero feedback design, latest and best digital conversion technology, gold plated PCB, tube power supply, active tube anode loading, Directly Heated Triodes in single ended scheme, copper capacitors, and many other features designed with one thing in mind - pure music.
DESIGNED TO BE INVISIBLE
Special Edition Riccardo Kron Anniversary tubes used for the Pacific DAC are the best KR AUDIO tubes made exclusively
for us and not available anywhere else.
Their magical sonic properties are due to the fact that anodes are covered with zirconium. It gives them that special dynamics of the 242 tube while retaining the beauty of the 300B.
(...) outstanding timbre, and tone, and deep, organic bass lines, and midrange that didn’t suffer an iota from the air, and extension the top end displayed. “Addictive Musicality” is what I scrawled in my RMAF brochure book next to the room name. Sound-staging actively changed from recording to recording (as it should be because sound stage is derived from the recording, not the equipment), which to me is always a hallmark of a truly transparent, and properly-engineered set-up.
