Technology, precision and know-how

The original format of the digital Hi-Res music tracks provided by streaming services must be maintained.

To ensure the data integrity of these tracks and to be fully bit-perfect, no alterations or conversions are made.

The choice of the DAC and the respect of its implementation, followed by a fine tuning of the analogue output stages, allow a true and harmonious restitution.
