High-end MQA and Roon tested DAC!
The DAC Box RS2 is based on our incredibly successful
Pre Box RS2 Digital but takes away the analogue pre-amp
section, to reduce the unit to a standalone DAC with fixed
output. It uses the same excellent sounding DAC chips
that were first used in it‘s little brother, the Pre Box S2 Digital. Based on the same core-design principles, the feature set is extended and driven to new heights. The result
is a fantastic sounding and very versitile box. The perfect
partner for anyone looking for a modern DAC with a plethora of digital inputs and a fully balanced circuit board
The DAC Box RS2 is a DAC that uses a dual-mono configuration of the highest-class D/A converters from ESS
Sabre. ESS9038Q2M chips provide the highest sound
quality in price-affordable, high-end circuits. Unlike most
of DAC's in this price range, the DAC Box RS2 includes
dual DACs and separate signal paths for the left and right
Also thanks to these converters, the DAC Box RS2 supports up to 32-bit / 768 kHz files in PCM and DSD formats
(up to DSD512) via USB, covering any digital file you can
buy or stream.
The fixed analog output can be switched between solid state and high-quality tube. Thus, the customer can
choose which of the option is preferred.
The DAC Box RS2 has eight digital filters. One of them
is the proprietary optimal transient digital filter from the
MQA creators. With these filters, the listener can customize the sound to suit their own preferences.
It comes with full HW and SW support for MQA technology (Master Quality Authenticated).
