About us

What we do

dCS believes that the role of a hi-fi system is to preserve all of the subtle information on a recording through the reproduction chain, and present it to the listener with every last nuance of emotional content intact.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing a series of posts on covering the basics of digital-to-analogue converters. We'll start with a look at PCM and DSD audio, before going on to discuss common DAC topologies and the unique design of the dCS Ring DAC.

Our aim with these posts is to provide some useful information that will help people gain a better understanding of digital audio products, whether you're a dCS customer, or a digital audio enthusiast who would like to learn more about the subject. We'll also be delving into other digital audio topics in future, including clocking and filtering. 

Our first post, which provides an introduction to PCM audio, is now live.

We’re incredibly saddened to hear that recording engineer, producer and 20-time GRAMMY winner Al Schmitt passed away this week aged 91. In a career spanning more than six decades, Al recorded and mixed over 150 gold and platinum albums for a huge range of artists, including Sam Cooke, Frank Sinatra, ELVIS PRESLEY, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Steely Dan, Diana Krall and Madonna.

We had the pleasure of working with Al at a dCS 30th Anniversary celebration at Capitol Studios in 2017 and last year as part of our dCS Legends initiative.

Speaking to us for our podcast series, The Other Side of the Glass, he shared some fascinating stories about his musical journey, from his childhood experiences assisting at his uncle's recording studio in Manhattan, to his work at New York's RCA Studios and the legendary Capitol Studios in California, and we were deeply inspired by his warmth, compassion and dedication to his craft. Throughout his remarkable career, he remained committed to achieving the highest standards in music production and honouring the extraordinary talents of all those he worked with.

Our thoughts go out to Al's family and friends at this difficult time, and everyone who collaborated with him over the years.

With Spring finally here, our production manager and resident drone pilot Colin has taken to the skies and captured this stunning shot high above the dCS factory in Cambridgeshire, England.

Check out the amazing setup over at @acoustictuning featuring the dCS Rossini DAC.
