For requests from existing high-end DAC owners, Ref DS1 model developed specifically for digital processing and output. It is an Network Bridge and Streaming Transporter designed with 3 key pricinples in mind: ease of use, universal compatibility with music sources and sound quality. It used ARM RK3288 1.8GHz quad core CPUs make more higher ability and performance of the processing and the high definition audio playback. Control Ref DS1 thanks to its slick Web-based control interface. Use it with any browser, with any device: Mac, PC, Android, iOS or anything with a browser. Everything from configuration to Playback is just a fingertip away.

Advantage

1. Powered by a lithium battery. Automatic charging and perfect protection.

2. Dual Mono design throughout maximises channel separation. Dual AK4497 DACs featuring 140dB dynamic range.The default settings for DSD and PCM are "DSD direct" and "Low dispersion short delay". The "DSD dircet" mode can let the pure orignal DSD signal direct to outputs and the "Low dispersion short delay" of PCM digital filter can let DAC chip Close to R2R Operating mode. The DAC chip board can easy to remove and fix to do update in the future.
3. It is particularly worth mentioning that the output stage uses a Specially customized Swedish Lundahl output transformer, passive LPF processing for amazing results.
