To satisfy audiophiles everywhere, KORG expands its Direct Stream Digital (DSD) hardware and software products with the introduction of the DS-DAC-10R, a revolutionary USB DAC recording system offering professional-grade Analog-to-Digital conversion. Thanks to seamless integration with the improved AudioGate4 software and ASIO-based USB connectivity, users can quickly create DSD-recordings anywhere, anytime; RIAA phono inputs make the DS-DAC-10R is ideal for archiving vinyl records and the highest-quality audio rates. DS-DAC-10R not only supports the standard DSD sample playback rate of 2.8 MHz, but has the capabilities to playback higher-resolution of 5.6 MHz or "Double-rate DSD."
The finely crafted die cast body of the DS-DAC-10R is designed to integrate beautifully with the user's existing audio system. Inside and out, attention was given to using premium materials-highlighted by the copper-plated rear panel and the gold-plated connectors. Sleek and uncluttered, the front panel provides a headphone jack and a volume control with LED illumination to indicate the playback format and recording status. Users can enjoy a lifetime of listening to outstanding, futureproof audio fidelity by recording it in DSD with the DS-DAC-10R.
"Thanks to the DS-DAC-10R music makers and music lovers now no longer have to wait for their favorite music as a high-resolution release, can create DSD-recordings with their own sources and listen to high-resolution," shared James Sajeva, US brand manager for Korg technology products.
KORG was among the first audio companies to focus on the high sound quality benefits of DSD, using DSD as the recording format for the highly acclaimed MR series of studio and field recorders. Now that major music distribution sites such as Blue Coast Records and Channel Classic Records have started distributing data in the DSD, the DSD format has become preferred by audio fans. The DS-DAC-10R can also be used for playback in conjunction with iAudioGate, the high-resolution music player for iPhone. Users can connect to their iPhone and enjoy playing back archived records more conveniently than when using a PC.
The DS-DAC-10R is now available for $599.99 and Korg's preceding DS-DAC series models - the DSDAC100m and DSDAC100 -are now available for a new low price of $299.99 and $499.99 respectively. For more information visit http://www.korg.com/ds_dac_10r/.
