• DS-24HD Music Server

    $1,995.00

    The DS-24HD is a high performance, open architecture music server offering excellent fidelity, DSP flexibility and system simplicity. The DS-24HD achieves its musical fidelity via precision and simplicity of design.
     
    The generation of music begins in the JRiver Media Center which direct kernel streams digital music from the solid state drive into an Analog Devices 400 MHz Sharc DSP where nearly unlimited, or absolutely no processing can be applied with 24 bit precision.  Finally the AKM DAC outputs are pre-amplified using audiophile grade components providing four each 2 Vrms single-ended outputs.
    All this is accomplished with superior shielding, isolation and an absolute minimum of cabling. The fully configurable analog outputs are intended for direct connection to audiophile grade power amplifiers and subwoofers.

    The DS-24HD is free of fans and AC power transformers, DC power is supplied via and external dual isolated medical grade converter. The miniDSP 2x4HD core is dual isolated and shielded for ultra low noise and low distortion performance.
    The fanless design uses state of the art passive heatpipes and robust cooling fins for excellent thermal control.  The result is absolute electrical and mechanical silence.
     
    The DS-24HD features a stunning machined aluminum case with a sleek 55mm height and heavy 10mm thick precision front panel all finished in an elegant shot blasted aluminum. Available in silver and black.
