hy DSD?


DSD is a hi-res music format compatible with the latest generation of Audiolab electronics including 8300CD, M-DAC+ and M-ONE. The improved soundstage of DSD (Direct Stream Digital) gives room to breathe. You can hear more details in the intonation (overtones) & dynamics, which results in a large emotional impact. Often described as, ‘helicopter view’ of music listening you are able to place the various musicians in the space around you. For the first time in music history, producers have stopped playing cat-and-mouse with the consumers of recorded music: we now all experience and enjoy the same (the highest possible) quality of recorded music.
