Ideon Audio Absolute Epsilon DAC META

An Absolute Revelation: Bringing Music to Life



With its future-proof modular construction, built to the highest standards, the Ideon Audio Absolute DAC encapsulates what is the state of the art in digital conversion, re-clocking, signal regeneration, internal and noise elimination, linear & non-linear distortion elimination, modular board isolation, and extreme components quality not often available elsewhere.

The heart of digital playback, transports you to the musical event itself.


The META edition (2024)

Effective January 2024 our globally acclaimed Absolute Epsilon DAC will be available as the Epsilon meta edition – Absolute ε Meta – integrating additional cutting-edge technologies and innovations that firmly establish the Absolute in the upper echelons of today’s premier digital playback systems. 

Consistent with our product philosophy, the Meta edition boasts an entirely proprietary design. Our in-house developed audio technologies set us apart, as Ideon Audio never uses or relies on off-the-shelf solutions or any third-party components.

The 2024 Meta upgrade brings substantial performance enhancements to the already highly acclaimed Absolute ε DAC, including:

  • New firmware with improvements in our proprietary code
  • A novel DAC output selection feature (high/med/low/variable) designed to seamlessly match a diverse range of amplifier loads
  • Upgraded power supplies featuring meticulously engineered transformers
  • Enhanced analog stage with improved extreme dynamics and even lower noise

All these new innovations and upgrades elevate the already high performance of the Absolute DAC to an extreme level, offering a unique and memorable listening experience. The areas most affected are the dynamics (both micro and macro), the tone quality, which becomes purer and more faithful to the original, and the soundstage, which becomes even wider and more expansive.


  • New, in-house developed dedicated software for the ES9038PRO DAC chip
  • Balanced operation, balanced and single ended outputs
  • Ideon Audio’s Proprietary triple distillation USB input and S/PDIF input
  • Three new zero-noise, proprietary active bridges – an ultra high-end design that takes to zero the noise from rectification. A unique Absolute ε technology
  • Next generation analog stage, with symmetrical, ultra-low-noise power supplies. Another unique Absolute ε technology
  • Extreme Ideon Audio linear power supply configuration with many different local power supplies and dual, exceptionally large main power supplies.
  • 17 Stage ultra-low noise power reservoir
  • Isolated control board
  • Selected audiophile components throughout
  • Two main bespoke transformers with extreme cores, running at more than 3 times the necessary current. Custom hand-made for audio applications
  • ESS ES9038PRO 32-bit 8 channel, Hyperstream Dac
  • Industry’s highest dynamic range (DNR), up to 140dB
  • Three of the most exotic, ultra-low jitter clocks


HyperStream, 8-channels architecture

  • The highest performing DAC to date sets a new benchmark for audio excellence with the industry’s highest dynamic range (DNR), up to 140dB, in a 32-bit, 8-channel DAC
  • Unique 15ohm output impedance at -140dB SNR or 1W
  • Discreet power through 16 separate power regulators in the circuit. Direct coupled output with no capacitors in the output stage.
  • The finest details contained in the recording, come to the surface in a phase-correct manner, allowing the musical event to emerge complete.
  • The sonic result is no longer a lossy simulation requiring brainpower to cover for what is not there: you “are there”.


Proprietary Triple Distillation USB input: Noise Elimination

Conceived and designed in-house, the Ideon Audio Triple Distillation USB input comprises a proprietary three-stage noise eradication circuit that eliminates digital noise from the input signal. Figuratively speaking, we have declared war on linear & non-linear distortion and noise!


Clock Oscillators: Getting the Music in Phase

The Absolute uses three top-of-the-line femto ultra-low jitter and ultra-low phase noise clocks in a no-compromise architecture; precision and resulting phase fidelity of the signal is ensured.

Each clock has its own dedicated power line.
