The musicbook:10 DSD is the basic model of the musicbook series. It is a USB digital-analog converter with outstanding sound properties which enables the reproduction of music from a computer in studio master quality. It can handle easily resolutions of up to 384 kHz PCM and DSD 256.


But the musicbook:10 DSD can do a lot more. The integrated analog preamp, which also doubles as an excellent headphone amp, allows the connection of a phono preamp and thus offers a consummate audiophile quality also with vinyl records.


In terms of technology the musicbook:10 DSD is definitely way ahead of the competition. Using a sophisticated recalculation all digital audio signals are converted into DSD 128/256, a data format which is highly esteemed by audiophiles worldwide. Thus the actual digital-analog conversion is reduced to a mere filtering of the DSD signal. This completely new approach is the secret behind the musicbook’s exceptionally good sound.
