Atlantic DAC was made 3 years ago, to the memory of Lukasz Fikus’ sailing trip across the Atlantic ocean. It was meant to put in one attractive package as many features of the most desirable audiophile wish list – as possible. From early 2019 we redesigned the Atlantic, mainly to enable the last missing feature from that wish list – ability to roll (change) tubes. The use of octal base pinout, compatible with power tetrodes and pentodes, plus only one and common 6,3 V heater voltage, enabled us to offer tens of different tube types to be used alternatively. Hence the new name – TRP = Tube Rollers Paradise. Just one internet tube store offers 120 tube models compatible with Atlantic TRP DAC. Add to it the multiplication of NOS brands etc. We tested TRP with circa 20 tube types, and frankly we haven’t found one that plays bad.

Moving upwards from Amber and Baltic, you get the first DAC that doesn’t use so called small signal tubes but instead – we use the overkill power tubes, acting like small signal. They are way off the typical operating points used in amplifiers, and that’s why these tubes in our DAC are not stressed, not running out of steam, but instead acting with unheard-of authority, ease, grace and dynamics. The resulting sound character of this DAC is a whole level better than obtainable from any noval or octal tube, forget Ecc88, ECC81, 6SN7 or the like. You owe it to yourself to hear what such pentode system can do. It would be like the first ride in a V8 car. There is – simply speaking – no going back.


So called Golden Atlantic 2 DAC is very popular among our customers due to the exclusive real copper top. It is not a mere decor, or copper clad steel. it is a sheet of pure German copper. We decided to create an exclusive luxury version of the Atlantic – the Golden Atlantic. For the price increase of 2000 Euro you get : Copper Top, WBT sockets at the back, premium power supply capacitors, Better tubes from the best ones we know, elegant flight case custom made for this product and Stacore footers.


The main features of this DAC are:

Tube based power supply, choke CLC filtering, copper output caps, engine 53 derived from the Pacific engine design, 512*DSD, Balanced or Single ended – by order, possibility to add full preamp feature with remote control, display, and resistor ladders. Balanced configuration is truly balanced, not merely an SE circuit with phase doubler at the end. You get also analog preamp inputs, newest USB firmware for 512DSD on Linux and Windows, and as standard you get the fine EL34 tetrodes that we can obtain from series production.
