Challenging Everything

We’ve been redefining the boundaries of digital audio for over three decades, pioneering high-resolution recording and playback technologies at the same time as developing a succession of ground-breaking products for music lovers and world-renowned studios.

To remain at the forefront of audio innovation for such a sustained period of time requires fearless engineering, a commitment to excellence and a deep-rooted passion for our craft, along with world-class talent in software, electronics engineering and mechanical design. 

Performance-led innovation is the foundation of our design philosophy. Using our deep expertise and insight, we craft music systems that provide the most revealing and emotionally communicative music playback experience available.

Our obsessive quest to advance the standard of digital audio never ends, and our desire to continuously improve our products and technologies means our customers are on a musical journey with us.

With each system we create, we continue to reimagine what’s possible in music playback - developing world-leading innovations that defy the limits of audio engineering and bring people closer to the sounds and artists they love.

Ring DAC

Peerless performance

The dCS Ring DAC™ is unique in its design and peerless in its performance. Combining vanishingly low distortion, ultra-wide bandwidth and very low jitter, it provides an unforgettable experience which uncovers the finest of musical details and presents sound with every nuance of emotion intact


Digital Processing Platform

Limitless potential

Our powerful processing platform provides our systems with unrivalled intelligence, flexibility and infinite scope to evolve. With its state-of-the-art performance, flexible architecture and FPGA-based design, it provides us with complete control over audio processing, and the freedom to bring even the most ambitious product ideas to life



Command and control

Our pioneering approach to clocking ensures all dCS systems are synced to a precise and stable reference source which sets world class standards for accuracy and jitter control. The absolute precision in a dCS system ensures that no subtle timing or spatial cues are lost during the conversion stage, providing a lifelike and three-dimensional sound


Testing & Measurement


Applying our decades of experience in pushing the boundaries of digital audio, we utilise a holistic approach to design and measurement, ensuring every dCS system delivers an unrivalled technical and sonic performance across all key technical dimensions



Enhanced headphone listening

Expanse is a patent pending innovation from dCS that brings the headphone experience closer to the studio listening experience. Its unique processing method replicates the effects of studio listening, where sound is projected into the space around us, rather than inside our heads, without altering the reverberation in a recording or affecting a system’s performance



Superior streaming

Mosaic provides a unified playback and control interface for all dCS owners, bringing together music from multiple platforms and sources in a single, intuitive interface, while providing complete control over your listening experience and system settings
