The advanced DAC Box RS is a reference-class D/A converter for all kinds of digital stereo sound sources. It superbly acts as a superior USB audio interface for demanding computer audio, also features AES/EBU input and I²S interface for use with CD Box RS. For the engaged audiophile we provide full DSD capability (up to DSD128) over PCM. All inputs fully support 24/192kHz HD music data (optical inputs 96/24) in fully asynchronous mode.
Additionally DAC Box RS incorporates a pair of the best audio grade DAC chips, PCM 1792, which only can be found in expensive high-end designs. 2 different digital filter settings are selectable to meet your favourite sound preferences. Additionally we realized that its also depending on customers taste and type of music/recording, what technology for the output stage is preferable. More warm and relaxed sounding with Tubes or Solid State Class A with limitless details and dynamics. The DAC Box RS has both options to select.
The whole audio circuitry design is ultra low noise and ultra linear with very low output impedance to avoid any negative interference with cables or pre-amps. Due to its class-leading audio performance DAC Box RS is an ultimate high-end bargain!

Comments of Note:
"...it is the unquestioned winner in terms of inputs."
"The DAC Box RS manages to combine refinement and a sense of drive in a way that ensures that it doesn’t become overly bright or fatiguing while also not being soporific."
"There is a sense of proportion to the way that the DAC makes music – regardless of the scale of the recording – that makes it a very satisfying partner."
"The skills it demonstrates with soundstage and presentation coupled to the refinement and detail give the track real presence and enjoyment."
"...the extremely strong performance coupled with its impressively extensive specification and the added promise of upgradeability further down the line is enough to ensure that it more than holds its own"

EXCELLENT - Extremely Capable
Pro-Ject CD Box RS & DAC Box RS Systen Review
Comments of Note:
“Switching to valves, and the bassline is bestowed with an extra degree of smoothness and warmth. I found that these differences enable the combo to be ‘matched’ to different music and recordings. The Beatles’ ‘Sergeant Pepper’ and Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ albums, for example, were made that little bit more enjoyable when heard through valves.”
“My 24/96 FLAC ‘rip’ of Miles Davis’ ‘Kind of Blue’ was heard with a presence and depth that was hard to distinguish from the original Columbia vinyl LP.”
Playing DSD64 files: AUN J Classic Orchestra – ‘Hachi-nin no hibiki (Eight People’s sounds)’
“The subtle tonal characters of instruments here were individually conveyed with precision, insight and finely-etched detail. Yet these definable elements all also came together as a cohesive and beautiful musical whole.”
“Clever and versatile.”
“FOR: - Flexible in terms of connectivity, format support and settings. – detail, focus and natural balance”
