“A major benefit to owning a Bartók is that it doesn’t force you to choose sides or give up one medium for the other. Rather, it levels the playing field while providing options a great majority of DACs only dream about” @TONEAudio

“If the goal of a DAC is to bring us as close to the music as possible with the least amount of digital “noise”, the Bartók manages to accomplish this with aplomb and finesse” Ethan Opolion, Producer, @canjamglobal

“It gives you a real sense of the space of a recording … it sounds like you’re in that room, like you’re just listening to very pure things happen live” @Abyssheadphones

The dCS Bartók distils three decades of audio innovation into a single, powerful system. Combining a DAC, music streamer, pre-amp and headphone amplifier, it’s designed to provide a remarkable experience for both headphone and stereo listeners

Enhancing the headphone experience: how we created dCS Expanse

Developed for our Bartók Headphone DAC, Expanse is a bespoke signal processing platform from dCS that reimagines how sound is optimised for headphone playback.

The platform was created to bring the headphone experience closer to the studio listening experience. Its unique multi-stage processing method allows us to replicate the effects of studio listening without altering the reverberation in a recording or affecting a system's performance - providing an enhanced sense of realism when listening to a wide range of tracks.

To learn more about the platform and how it was created, head to the link in our bio, where you can read an interview with our Technical Director Andy McHarg.
