The ultimate Esoteric Monoblock DAC for the ultimate in stereo playback.
Master Sound Discrete DAC
The Master Sound Discrete DAC features a totally original design that represents the culmination of Esoteric's quest for an original master sound. Its high 64-bit resolution provides vast improvements over our earlier DAC's 36-bit resolution, and enables support for the latest technologies such as playback of 22.5MHz DSD and 768kHz PCM audio. All processing is handled by Esoteric's own FPGA algorithm, and a discrete circuit design forgoes the use of generic DAC ICs in order to actualize Esoteric's vision down to the finest detail.
High 64-Bit Resolution
How close can digital come to analog? With Esoteric's Master Sound Discrete DAC, this question becomes a thing of the past. The Master Sound Discrete DAC's 64-bit resolution is the highest in Esoteric history, reducing digital rounding error to an absolute minimum in order to enable the faithful reproduction of the subtlest of textures.
Support for DSD 22.5 MHz DSD and 768 kHz PCM
The Master Sound Discrete DAC easily supports a broad range of formats, and can provide native playback of the highest resolution DSD master files. This impressive performance is merely one of its superlative attractions.
