The DAC9 digital-to-analog converter decodes most current formats with state-of-the-art vacuum tube technology. Five digital connections - USB, RCA, BNC, AES/EBU, and Toslink - provide connectivity to all of your digital sources. Quad DAC architecture provides a balanced digital signal, wide dynamic range, and decoding resolutions from red book CD up to 384 kHz and native DSD sampling rates. A pair of 6H30 vacuum tubes are the heart of the analog circuit. Both balanced and single-ended connectors are provided for output connectivity. Native-rate upsampling and selectable digital filters allow customization of the digital signal.
APEX is a new, enhanced version of the dCS Ring DAC: the Digital to Analogue conversion system found inside all dCS DACs. First developed for our professional audio products, this unique system has been subject to continuous development and refinement over the past three decades, and remains renowned for its technical and sonic performance.

c|AQWO becomes in 2019 the new top high-end digital to analog converter of Métronome brand. And of course it keeps the famous switch from solid-state to tube function !
c|AQWO is great amonsts the greats, delivering a sound reproduction with an exceptional sound stage, achieving the performance of having at the same time the details that you audophiles are waiting for but staying warm and musical like analog. The emotion is here !
Le DAC by Métronome is the entry-level converter of the brand since December 2018. Made under the classic design of Métronome, it will comply with the needs of purists in search of a "high-end" sound reproduction with affordable price. Le DAC embeds a AK4493 conversion chip allowing decoding of PCM files up to 384 kHz and DSD up to 512 (DSD x8).
DirectStream is one of the most remarkable DACS ever built. Hand written, discrete, perfection based conversion that uncovers all the missing information hiding in your digital audio media for all these years. CD's, downloads, high-resolution PCM or DSD based media are expertly upsampled in the DirectStream to ten times DSD rate and output as pure analog directly into your amplifier or preamplifier.
DSJ uses the same FPGA architecture and customized code as PS Audio’s DirectStream DAC, and it is designed and built by the exact same team. The idea behind the DSJ was to offer near-identical performance at a fraction of the cost. How was this accomplished? Lower cost chassis and user interface.
What happens when you take a highly respected, cutting edge DAC, like our own NuWave DSD, and connect it to your power amplifier through an analog preamp? Audio nirvana. It turns out that a great analog preamp preserves a DACs magic. Together, DAC and preamp form a new class of product whose sum is greater than its parts.
We as audiophiles often seek 'giant killer' components. Though the phrase is loosely used, rarely, if ever do we find such elusive equipment. The BDA-3 is one of these rare specimens. An extraordinarily well engineered DAC, the BDA-3 is compatible with virtually any digital source component and features measured performance that is very near the theoretical limit of the digital audio streams it can decode. Such a well executed DAC can resolve the finest details in your digital recording with aplomb. Besides it's superb measured performance, it's a total joy to use and listen to. It is operationally easy to understand and sounds better than anyone could expect. Regardless of your digital audio budget, this should be on your short list.
The Player 3+ is the affordable premium DAC and CD player for all audiophiles, characterized by a fabulous sound reproduction.
The D/A converter part is accessible through the USB or S/P DIF inputs and decodes all audio file formats up to DSD 512.
In its silver or black aluminum livery, the Player 3+ will integrate its premium finish with the greatest elegance.
