“We have a very fundamental desire to be the best, and that’s what drives us…. We’re not interested in taking short cuts, we’re not interested in taking the easy route.” - Andy McHarg
Earlier this week, we announced the launch of APEX: a major update to the hardware portion of the dCS Ring DAC. Following several months of intensive research and development, our engineers have redesigned the Ring DAC’s circuit board and analogue output stage. These modifications have allowed us to deliver a range of measured improvements and, in turn, enhance the musical performance of our acclaimed Vivaldi and Rossini systems.
In a new film featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, we talk to dCS Managing Director David Steven, Technical Director Andy McHarg, and Director of Product Development Chris Hales about our latest technological achievement, and our commitment to continuous product development. The film also reflects on the history and evolution of the dCS Ring DAC, the development of the new APEX hardware, and the unique mindset that inspires our engineers to keep interrogating our designs, and pushing our technologies ever further.
