Pro-Ject DAC Box DS
Save $200 on Asynchronous 24-Bit/192kHz Pro-Ject DAC Box DS: Features DSD Compatibility Via USB Input, Three Inputs, 8x Oversampling, Two Filter Settings, and PCM 1792 Chips
Pro-Ject's compact and flexible DAC Box DS just got better, and by a wide margin. Newly equipped with DSD compatibility via its USB input, this asynchronous 24-bit/192kHz DAC boasts three inputs, 8x oversampling, two filter settings, and PCM 1792 chips normally only found in much more expensive models. The handy on-screen display and ultra-linear design complement the smooth, detailed, and tonally balanced performance.
"...What we hear from the DAC Box DS is very nice. It's a smooth, flowing presentation with a very even tonal balance – from deep, weighty bass to clean and clear treble."
– What Hi-Fi?
Versatile DAC With Fully Asynchronous Support
DAC Box DS is an excellent D/A converter for digital sound sources using optical and coaxial inputs, and also acts as a superior USB audio interface for computer audio applications. Its USB input supports 24-bit/192kHz HD music data in fully asynchronous mode. DAC Box DS incorporates the best audio-grade DAC chips, PCM 1792, found only in very expensive high-end designs.
Customizable Options and Cool Blue Display
Two different filter settings (steep and optimum phase) allow listeners to tailor DAC Box DS to their favorite sound preference. The linear audio circuitry is completely low-output impedance to avoid negative interference with cables or pre-amps. A cool, big display shows selected input, incoming bit depth, filter settings, and sampling frequency. DAC Box DS is an outstanding low-cost high-end bargain!
