The DS-10 PLUS is a 4-in-1 digital source that features a UPnP-DLNA Streamer, High-End D/A Converter, Line Preamplifier and Headphone Amplifier. Inspired by our acclaimed IS-1000 All-In-One unit, it combines its extended connectivity features with the exceptional high-resolution of the Bluetooth 5.0 – for the first time ever on a High-End audio product – and the impressive headphone double power GAIN output.
Part of the Series 10, the DS-10 PLUS is the perfect connection between the PH-10 phono stage and the PA-10 power amplifier, and the core of a smart stereo system.
The DS-10 PLUS is a Roon Ready device with a quick plug & play set-up and multi-room capabilities. Simply connect it to your network using the Wi-Fi or the Ethernet port and to your power amplifier or active speakers, and get ready to explore the limitless possibilities of high-resolution music. Stream through Roon, Airplay, Tidal, MQA, Qobuz, Spotify and Deezer or access your collection of digital music stored locally on a NAS or a USB flash drive controlling the DS-10 with our easy to use GN Control App on your smartphone or tablet (available for free on iOS and Android).
The DS-10 PLUS has a unique feature that sets it apart from any other DAC – its behaviour can be changed to adapt to the music played without modifying the audio signal and maintaining the highest audio quality, acting on the PCM Equalisation curve (Low-Pass filter), the High-Frequency De-emphasis, and the internal power profile. Such profiles can be selected in real-time during music playback delivering a unique listening experience and ease of use thanks to the clear menu on the TFT display. It’s time to enjoy the unprecedented listening pleasure that only the DS-10 can offer you.
