Decware Direct Stream Digital DAC / Recorder




Weíre pleased to bring you a practical solution to hi-resolution digital by taking a professional grade DSD recorder from Tascam and designing a unique transformer coupled output stage for it! Weíre excited to say that the combination of these two things greatly exceed the sum of their parts. The model number is ZDSD (Zen Direct Stream Digital).

While you can use this as you would any DAC, itís design makes it possible to eliminate all the variables that cloud digitalís performance. For example, the plastic disc and transport can be eliminated. Or the computer and all of itís required software can be eliminated, so you wonít have to worry about what audiophile grade USB cable to buy.

This is possible because the ZDSD uses memory cards or USB sticks that simply plug into the front. This makes digital playback possible without a transport or a computer and offers a 100% hardware solution that always works. It always works because itís not a programmable gate array and has no firmware to update. It plays standard and hi-res formatted files including DSD64 and DSD128.

The Decware output stage in this device is a real ass kicker with adjustable output levels and no tubes, just high bandwidth transformers that allow the full voltage of balanced outputs to become available on the custom installed floating silver RCA output jacks.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention it records in all formats too! †That means you can make DSD128 recordings of your albums without having to purchase a single piece of software and without worries about running inferior hardware. The Burr Brown A to D in this machine uses a temperature controlled 1 PPM clock which is as good as it gets and your recordings will sound analog.

After almost 2 years the ZDSD is still selling well, sound great, and has not required a single modification or update.
