Gold Note DS-10 Streaming DAC In Stock.
A COMPLETE DIGITAL AUDIO SOURCE: STREAMING D/A CONVERTER WITH HEADPHONE OUTPUT AND LINE PREAMPLIFIER
The DS-10 is a 4-in-1 digital source that features a UPnP-DLNA Streamer, High-End D/A Converter, Line Preamplifier and Headphone Amplifier. Inspired by our acclaimed IS-1000 All-In-One unit, it combines its extended connectivity features with the exceptional high-resolution of the Bluetooth 5.0 – for the first time ever on a High-End audio product – and the impressive headphone double power GAIN output.
Part of the Series 10, the DS-10 is the perfect connection between the PH-10 phono stage and the PA-10 power amplifier, and the core of a smart stereo system.
The DS-10 is a Roon Ready device with a quick plug&play set-up and multi-room capabilities. Simply connect it to your network using the Wi-Fi or the Ethernet port and to your power amplifier or active speakers, and get ready to explore the limitless possibilities of high-resolution music. Stream through Roon, Airplay, Tidal, MQA, Qobuz, Spotify and Deezer or access your collection of digital music stored locally on a NAS or a USB flash drive controlling the DS-10 with our easy to use GN Control App on your smartphone or tablet (available for free on iOS and Android).
The DS-10 has a unique feature that sets it apart from any other DAC – its behaviour can be changed to adapt to the music played without modifying the audio signal and maintaining the highest audio quality, acting on the PCM Equalization curve (Low-Pass filter), the High-Frequency De-emphasis, and the internal power profile. Such profiles can be selected in real-time during music playback delivering a unique listening experience and ease of use thanks to the clear menu on the TFT display. It’s time to enjoy the unprecedented listening pleasure that only the DS-10 can offer you.
With the Chameleon Mode you can adjust the sonic profile of the DS-10 fine-tuning the performance of the DAC to adapt it to the music you’re playing, just as a chameleon, acting on the PCM Equalization curve (Low Pass filter), the High-Frequency De-emphasis, and the internal power profile.
The Chameleon technology allows you to adapt the DS-10 perfectly to the music you love while preserving the highest quality of the audio signal.
Please note: the Chameleon Mode is available on firmware version V.130 and higher.
