Director is a formidable reference preamplifier featuring full stereo operation and an exemplary DA converter created with VOLTAiR technology. Essentially, Director acts as the basis for all connections therein, including a digital or analog CD player, phono preamp, USB-compatible device, and headphone or power amplifiers. Director sidesteps diminishing bit resolution by converting and regulating all volume in an analog environment. Director's source selection and volume parameters can be regulated using any IR remote.
