Gold Note DS-10 DAC Streamer
A MODERN AUDIO SOURCE FOR THE CONTEMPORARY AUDIOPHILE
The DS-10 is a versatile state-of-the-art streaming DAC designed for the contemporary audiophile and featuring a new generation D/A Converter, UPnP-DLNA Streamer, Line Preamplifier and Headphone Amplifier. The technology of the DS-10 is brilliantly enclosed in a compact-sized aluminium chassis and it’s the perfect addition to a modern High-End audio system. 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. The DS-10 PLUS is also equipped with an analogue input to become a complete preamplifier for analogue and digital sources, both the analogue line input and the preamp stage operate in a fully analogue way to preserve the purest audio quality (available on DS-10 PLUS only).
HIGH-END DAC AND NETWORK STREAMER
The DS-10 is a Roon Ready device with a quick 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 (DSD64 and PCM 24/192 on USB-A/LAN/WLAN, DSD512 and PCM 32/768 on USB-B), controlling the DS-10 with our easy to use GN Control App on your smartphone or tablet (available for free on iOS and Android).
DIGITAL CHAMELEON AUDIOPHILE DAC
The DS-10 has a unique feature that sets it apart from any other DAC, making it the most versatile DAC available today – three different profiles can be selected to fine-tune the performance of the DAC, which adapts to the music it’s playing as a chameleon. For the first time ever, the DAC behaviour can be changed to adapt to the music played without modifying the audio signal and thus maintaining the highest audio quality, acting on the deemphasis, the low-pass digital filters and the amount of power applied to the circuits. 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.
