Cover HiFi-Statement Magazin Testbericht Model 4

Our Model 4 reviewed by HiFi-Statement

The chief editor of HiFi-Statement compares our Model 4 with his benchmark for digital playback: Melco Server, Japanese Telegärtner-Switch, Auralic Streamer and Chord DAC – with a price tag total in excess of EUR 22.000 – and concludes that the sound of our Model 4 “is simply closer to the analogue original”.

… and that at a third of the price! They could not have made us a more beautiful Christmas present.

Quotes: „…When it comes to creating a huge and deep acoustic space, the DAS is at the top of the game. … I know of no competitor that would come close to the Model 4.“

Comparing PCM to DSD playback: „… Already the PCM version leaves no wishes unfulfilled: The tonality is perfect, music flows without any hint of digital harshness; the depth of the acoustic image amazes. In short: I have rarely heard the digital version of this piece so fluently. The DSD version appears even smoother – a hint more flowing and round.“

In comparision to the digital benchmark components, „… the DAS creates just a tad more acoustical space and exudes just a bit more warmth. Even if it may sound corny: In my view, the sound of the DAS is simply closer to the analogue original.“

Summary: „The Model 4 of Digitale Audio Systeme is excellently built, can be operated without any computer knowledge and offers excellent ease of use. But above all, it’s sound quality convinces: It beams the listener into huge acoustical spaces, has no digital harshness and generates a warm analogue sound. It is a sonic indulgence of the highest order – not just for analogue fans!“

High End, München, 2018

Impressions from High End Munich Show 2018

This year again, Munich saw the High End Show from May 10-13. 20.000 visitors came to see the latest in high end audio technology. Digital Audio Systems exhibited with its partners, Wiener Lautsprecher Manufaktur und Way Cables, in the Atrium Room F220 on 70 sqm.

Test Review of our HD-Player Model 2 in HiFi-Statement

The renown magazine HiFi-Statement has tested our  HD-Player Model 2 in 04/2018.

Summary: “… And now I am coming straight out with it: I almost fell off my chair hearing the first sounds: The music sounds so natural and realistic, with body and space and perfect timing, as I am only used to from my Platine Verdier but not from a digital device. The transparency of the presentation is equally impressive. … What I am hearing here is absolutely first class.”

“Tonality, dynamics and spacial representation are first rate. At the same time, I am totally impressed with the way the sound breaks away from the speakers and just stands in my room.”

Verdict: “With its HD-Player Model 2, DAS has created a new device category: Server and DAC in one unit at the highest level of audio quality. As simple in operation as a CD player, but with all the convenience of a modern streamer.

A very strong recommendation!”
