Gold Note DS10 DAC Streamer Pre & Headphone Amp

The Gold Note DS10 is the most versatile DAC on the market.  It is a 4 in 1 integrated unit of a high-quality streamer, a complete analog line pre-amplifier and a high-quality headphone amplifier featuring the newest AKM DAC and the latest Bluetooth 5.

NEW FIRMWARE OUT
With the new firmware (FW) Gold Note has implemented a unique feature – the selection of three different profiles – which let the listener change the sound character of the DAC similar to a chameleon, making the DS-10 the most versatile unit on the market!

A GREAT INVENTION
For the first time ever, all the possible set up functions that are part of the basic operation of any digital converter are accessible to the end-user including the Low Pass filter, high-frequency De-emphasis and internal Power of the DAC.

NO CHANGES TO THE AUDIO SIGNAL
The adjustments to the electrical profiles of the DAC can be made in real-time based on the music playing.  This allows you to perfectly match the DS-10 to your stereo system and, above all, to your listening preferences.   All this can be done without modifying the audio signal.
