In March 2022, we're launching the dCS Ring DAC™ APEX. This new hardware - the result of several months of intensive research and development - allows us to deliver a range of sonic and measured improvements, and enhance the musical performance of two renowned dCS systems
For over 30 years, we’ve strived to set the standard for digital playback, and deliver a truly state-of-the-art experience for all dCS owners. This requires constant innovation, and an absolute dedication to achieving the finest possible levels of sound reproduction.
Our engineers never stop exploring how we can enhance our products and technologies and, in turn, the musical performance our systems provide. Even after a product is released, we continue to invest in developing new features, and creating novel solutions that can aid us in our mission to bring people closer to their favourite artists and sounds.
Wherever possible, these innovations are made available to existing dCS owners, either in the form of free software updates, or physical upgrades that allow customers to receive the latest dCS hardware without having to purchase a whole new system.
Following extensive research and development, we’ve made some major changes to the Ring DAC hardware. We’ve reconfigured the Ring DAC circuit board and developed an all-new analogue output stage.
This has allowed us to reduce distortion, improve linearity, and deliver both measured and subjective improvements in a range of key areas, taking the Ring DAC’s world-leading performance to a new level. It has also allowed us to further enhance the performance of the much-loved dCS Vivaldi DAC, Rossini DAC, and Rossini Player.
On March 4, we'll release next generation APEX editions of the Rossini DAC, Vivaldi DAC, and Rossini Player. These will feature the new Ring DAC APEX hardware as standard. We'll also be offering Ring DAC APEX upgrades to existing Rossini and Vivaldi owners.
The new dCS Rossini DAC makes superlative sounding music from a wide range of digital sources, simply integrating your digital music and setting the performance standard for digital playback.
This single-box digital music player features the legendary Ring DAC and signal processing platform plus a custom high performance UPnP music streamer.
Rossini plays music through an array of industry-standard USB, AES and S/PDIF digital inputs, and can stream over Ethernet from a NAS drive or online music services such as TIDALTM, SpotifyTM and from Apple devices via AirplayTM.
