Raising the Bar – dCS Rossini
1st June 2016

Review by Jeff Dorgay

Tone Audio #77

The sutle growl in Plastikman’s “Mind Encode”
rolls out into my listening room in such a sinister,
encompassing way, it’s almost frightening. It
instantly reminds me of the aural magic that its
much more expensive sibling, the four box Vivaldi,
which until now was the only digital playback
system capable of being this visceral.

Still Impressive! dCS Elgar DAC
31st May 2016

Review by Jeff Dorgay

Tone Audio #77

It’s always a blast to take a trip in the wayback machine,
especially in the world of digital audio, where years are like
dog years. Back in 1996, dCS introduced the world’s first high
performance DAC, the Elgar, with 24/96 capabilities. (And a
$12,000 price tag) It was later updated to Elgar Plus, allowing
for 24/192 and DSD capabilities and there was no price
increase of note, until the exchange rates forced the importer
to raise the final price to $15,000. Having spent the last six
years using dCS as my digital reference, revisiting the Elgar, or
in this case an Elgar Plus, supplied to us by Music Lovers in
San Francisco – a premier dCS dealer.

Vivaldi y Rossini: de nuevo la magia de dCS
Vivaldi y Rossini: de nuevo la magia de dCS
1st March 2016

Pocas marcas han sabido hilar tan fino a la hora de dotar de “alma” al audio digital doméstico
como la británica dCS. ¿El motivo? Un dominio de la tecnología “pro” más avanzada cuya expresión
más reciente la encontramos en el modelo Rossini, presentado en sociedad en el icónico loft de la
barcelonesa Werner.

“The dCS Rossini sets a high standard for digital audio of all kinds today. You may find ‘different’ but you won’t find ‘better’ at anything even close to this level.”
