Frequently Asked Questions

What does Hi-Res Audio Certified mean?

It means that the GameDAC Gen 2 is able to receive, process, and play Hi-Res formats (sampling rate of 96 kHz, bit depth of 24-Bit), receiving this coveted certification from the Japanese Audio Society.

How does Multi-System Connect work?

The GameDAC Gen 2 has two USB-C ports, which can connect to your PC or console with the provided USB-C to USB-A cables. Navigate the OLED screen menu to switch between active devices.

Can I connect two Xbox systems with GameDAC Gen 2 for Xbox?

The port labeled "Xbox" on the GameDAC Gen 2 is dedicated for Xbox use only, but the system can only accept one Xbox connection. The second port labeled "USB" accepts other consoles or PCs which can be connected for easy switching.

What are the connection differences between GameDAC Gen 2 and GameDAC Gen 2 for Xbox?

All models come with two direct USB system connections, but if you own an Xbox, only the GameDAC Gen 2 for Xbox will allow you to connect via the dedicated Xbox port (the second USB port is flexible for PC, PlayStation 4/5, Switch, Mac). If you need to connect a PS5 and a PC at the same time, conversely only the GameDAC Gen 2 version will be suitable.
