The DSD-Euphoria represents our best effort to bring our universally praised DSD engine to an affordable price point.
As this is a DSD-only For us it is the beginning of the end of CD era. No more SPDIF input. No more AES/EBU input. No more Toslink input. The legacy of 1980 has to stop somewhere. For us - it stops here!
If you already use a computer to play music - this DAC is for you.
If you don’t use a computer - you should.
This DAC plays even normal red-book standard CD’s as DSD via the computer and the sound quality is better than achievable from PCM files directly.
Why bother with PCM at all, if for the price of 50 dollars you can buy JRiver software (cost of 3 CDs) and play everything like DSD to the Euforia DAC.
And OF COURSE you can also play natively the DSD files and enjoy a full spectacle of sound in your room.
This DAC will change the way you listen to the music forever.
If you own a great PCM DAC - this DAC will be simply an addition to the rack. No conflict of interest.
The only thing needed is: a computer with USB output and storage of music files.
JRiver or Foobar software will do the job, or any other software that we may not know about. JRiver currently runs on all versions of Windows, MAC or Linux.
The DSD engine we implemented in this DAC is the same that got us tens of awards worldwide - our famous DSD128x Lampizator Engine. We use it in Level 4, Big 5, Lite 7 and Big 7 DACs.
We also use fully tubed analog stage from our Amber project but with improved circuit and tube selection.
