The Micca OriGen G2 USB audio DAC and preamplifier is a studio master grade digital audio playback device that supports high resolution PCM audio up to 24-bit/192kHz. Its powerful preamp and headphone amplifier makes the OriGen G2 especially well suited in a compact desktop computer audio system together with powered monitors and headhpones. Use the OriGen+ to bypass a computer’s sound card and unlock the full sonic potential of your music library.
The digital circuitry of the OriGen G2 consists of a C-MEDIA CM6631A USB 2.0 High Speed 480Mbps audio controller and a Wolfson WM8740 stereo D/A converter. This capable combination provides asynchronous decoding and conversion of PCM audio up to 24-bit/192kHz. Advanced audio stream interface support includes both ASIO and WASAPI Push/Event output modes.
The analog section of the OriGen+ provides switchable line-level or headphone output, using JRC NJM4556 op amps with two output gain levels of 5.6Vrms and 1.7Vrms. The selectable gain design provides excellent drive capability into any downstream amplifiers with enhanced signal strength, low noise, and low interference. The headphone outputs are similarly powerful, with only 0.5 Ohm output impedance and able to drive 16-600 Ohm headphones.
Starting with a steel tub chassis, the OriGen G2 is capped with an anodized aluminum top plate and finished with a solid machined aluminum volume knob. The TOCOS sealed potentiometer used for volume control offers long operating life and a smooth weighted feel. The all-metal construction makes the OriGen G2 exceptionally durable and helps shield against unwanted interference.
Hearing is believing, try the OriGen+ risk free with your own music. If you are not absolutely delighted with the OriGen’s performance, simply return it for a refund.
