What We Do
Perhaps the most important part of the music playback process is the digital to analogue conversion: this is when the digital data on a CD or computer file is converted into an analogue signal - the music we hear through speakers.
It is this process that dCS has been refining for 21 years and, by making the world's most advanced digital-to-analogue converters (DACs), master clocks and digital-to-digital converters (D2D), we can make the data on a CD or computer file sound more like the original recording than any other hi-fi system.
Over the years we have demonstrated to music lovers worldwide that, by separating the key functions of the digital playback chain, you can achieve huge sonic benefits and extraordinary musicality.
For that reason a typical dCS reference system will comprise up to four separate units: Upsampling CD/SACD Transport, Digital-to-Digital Converter, Digital-to-Analogue Converter and Master Clock. The positive contribution that each makes to the overall musical performance can easily be heard.
All dCS products express the same values of musical and technical excellence and, by utilising the same key technologies across the ranges, we can be sure that, whatever the source, the musical performance is guaranteed.
