Product Description

Alchemy transforms your listening.

The Alchemy DDP-2 combines three components in one elegant piece of gear to give you the highest-quality digital-to-analog converter, preamp and digital streamer we know how to make. Then we combined it in a single chassis only 1U (1.75 inches) high. The preamplifier offers maximum flexibility, while incorporating DAC and streaming functions to make the DDP-2 the centerpiece of your digital system.

Attention: in addition, other ELAC products are also available.

The art of Alchemy - completely reinvented.

Designed ground-up by the ELAC team, the new Alchemy Series gives birth to a marriage of technologies, bringing further advances to a name known for delivering performance and build quality far exceeding its price. Every component incorporates relevant, well-thought-out features and topology that are relevant to critical listeners, like discrete implementation of power supply, amplifier and signal processing to bring you best-in-class sound. With years of experience in award-winning analog and digital products, the Alchemy Series establishes a new standard for value in the world of high-end audio separates.
