TIDAL CAMIRA

 

The Camira is the reference  digital-analog-converter from TIDAL. Designed without compromises it offers a true PCM digital to analog output conversion. The whole device was designed to perform with a standard which is existing since decades: digital signals from a PCM source, simply just as from any CD-drive or as FLAC and WAV files, also in high resolution from music playback devices, no matter from SSD/HDD or directly streamed.

Timeless performance from any of those sources and formats, from what music listeners really have at home. Such as some of the best turntables ever designed are 'out of the race', the concept of Camira is the very same in approach. It is built for one purpose only, without compromising it with diversity for formats which do not matter in reality - the TIDAL Camira is a pure PCM-to-music machine.

SPECIFICATIONS

 

  • pure discrete designed DAC / DAC with line level pre amplifier and volume control
  • concept: fully balanced minimal path topology dual mono pre amplifier with fully regulated external power supply and 3 balanced phono inputs in an external deck
  • true balanced concept without any sound-changing inverted signal generation
  • 3 separated cabinets for power supply (POWERDECK), line stage and phono control deck (LINEDECK) and digital  input deck (DACDECK)
  • completely regulated power supply with galvanic separation and filtering for "left", "right" and "control" for each channel of the LINEDECK and PHONODECK, regulation boards out housed from the power supply directly at the amplifier boards
  • completely separated power supplies for level control and isolated DOT-matrix display with level indicator ("min", "1 - 31", "max", "mute", "on", "1:1") with time delayed turn-off with "on"-indicator behind a mirror inside of the chrome plate
  • 2 separated power cord inputs with different filtering for "Analog" and "Control"3 x balanced input, 3 x unbalanced input incl. 1 x tape-loop, 3 x balanced phono input, 2 x balanced output, parallel volume controlled
  • unique level adjustment: only 1 high precision resistor in signal path for level adjustment, controlled by an electronically and mechanically isolated motor driven ALPS potentiometer-A/D-converter-unit and 256 reed-relay, remote control for volume and intelligent soft mute
  • one input can be configured as 1:1 direct mode for an external surround processor or as classical high level input
