DACT Newsletter issue 1, May 1st 2001.

Welcome to the first issue of the DACT Newsletter.

This issue of the Newsletter is distributed because there has just been published a remarkable review of different DACT products in the very respected US audiophile magazine The Absolute Sound. The review was written by Dan Sweeney and published in the April/May 2001 issue of The Absolute Sound. The review describes Dan Sweeney’s experiences with a completely DACT-based preamplifier using the CT100 phono stage, the CT101 line stage, two mono CT1 stepped attenuators and a CT3-5-4 input selector switch.
DACT has purchased the rights to publish the complete review at http://www.DACT.com, as we believe it contains valuable information about our products. The review may be found here.

Here are a few examples of what Dan Sweeney’s wrote:

“ I don’t know if the Dact preamp is the best solid-state example of the category on the market, but I’d like to see anything that touches it for under seven or eight grand.”


. . . . . ” So why would you do this? Well, I own three phono sections: an old Stax SR-14; an older Sumiko; and a Boulder L3AE. The latter is far superior to the first two, though it lacks flexibility, and the Dact is superior to it. The L3AE, available on special order, is about $3,700, while the Dact assemblage under review costs approximately $2,000. These facts say a great deal for it’s design integrity.” . . . . . .


. . . . . “ Similarly, tape hiss assumes The Dact utterly lacks the usual solid-state blemishes: grain; hardness in the treble; an overall fatiguing quality. I normally prefer tube phono stages for their sweetness and musicality, but I don’t know of one I’d substitute for this. The Dact doesn’t sound like a tube circuit but then, it doesn’t sound like much of anything. Other than conveying an incredible sense of transparency, wide dynamics, and ultra-low noise, it doesn’t seem to impart a signature of it’s own and isn’t that what we’re after?” . . . . .
