UK audio magazine Hi-Fi+ published its 200th issue this month. To mark the occasion, the Hi-Fi+ team has launched a new award scheme recognising the world's most innovative audio brands, with winners showcased in a bumper print edition.

dCS was awarded a 2021 Hi-Fi+ Sound Investment Award for our continued efforts to advance the standard of digital audio reproduction, and our involvement in the development of new formats that have transformed digital playback.

"From its 1980s beginnings as a consultant in signal conversion ... through making some of the most highly respected analogue-to-digital converters in the music business, to its position of dominance at the zenith of domestic digital audio reproduction, dCS has long been the leader in the digital field," says Hi-Fi+.

"Sometimes, dCS literally sets the standards, too: the company was pivotal in the development of the 'DSD over PCM' format that allows high-rate bitstream files (originally only accessed from SACD discs) to be transmitted and unpacked as PCM audio files for computer audio. This truly revolutionised high-resolution audio streaming, and not simply for dCS."

We're delighted to see our commitment to continuous innovation recognised with this award, and would like to congratulate the entire team at Hi-Fi+ on reaching their 200th issue.
