  • ESS flagship DAC Chip

Twin left and right ES9038Pro are used for D/A conversion. The ESS DAC no longer relies on internal jitter removal, running in perfect sync with signal input. The high-fidelity clock and scrupulously arranged clock wiring and architecture ensure perfectly synchronized, jitter-free audio

  • External Clock

The unit features no internal clock generator and is driven by 10MHz external input. PMC-010EX or PMC-030EX give perfect performance for the DSP-010EX. PMC-02EX or other Rubidium clocks those have 10MHz output also works for the DSP-010EX.

  • Ultimate Network Music Player / USB DAC

With both the body and power supply housed in robust aluminum chassis, a outstanding power supply unit, and no internal clock, this exceptional network music player has everything for sound quality. With an almost ominous silence and stillness just before the start of each performance, it conveys only natural tones and sound fields. Adding nothing and taking nothing away. We provide the finest tools for listening to music.

  • Robust Power Supply

With distinct digital and analog power sources, high capacity transformers, and the high-speed, low noise SiC, the devices drive high power for deep, rich music playback. The dedicated DAC’s analog 3.3V sources feature discrete, feedback-based power with a high-speed, low noise error amplifier, while the analog output uses a discrete, feedback-less power source. On the digital side, multiple hi-fi LT1763 LDOs, courtesy of Linear Technology, regulate POL (point of load). Each integrated circuit works in a discrete fashion without interference from the others, utilizing 100% of their capabilities and ensuring jitter-free playback.

  • MQA

What is MQA?

MQA(Master Quality Auhenticated)

MQA is an award-winning British technology that delivers the sound of theoriginal master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download.

How does MQA work?

The DSP-050EX includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. ‘MQA’ indicates that the product is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and denotes provenance to ensure that the sound is identical to that of the source material. ‘MQA.’ indicates it is playing an MQA Studio file, which has either been approved in the studio by the artist/producer or has been verified by the copyright owner.
