dCS announces its new Vivaldi 2.0 series – bringing a comprehensive package of improvements to what many regard as the best digital music source in the world.
The original Vivaldi was launched in late 2012 to widespread critical acclaim. Music industry professionals and audiophiles alike declared it to be the finest sounding digital front end on sale.
Comprising the Vivaldi Transport, Vivaldi DAC, Vivaldi Upsampler and Vivaldi Master Clock, this cost-no-object, flagship system pushed the boundaries of what was then possible with digital replay. Vivaldi processed practically every digital format and offered a vast array of input and output configurations. At its heart was the dCS Ring DAC™, a unique, bespoke-designed digital converter that offers superlative sound quality and technical performance.
As with every dCS product, subsequent firmware updates have improved its functionality and performance. Now though, dCS has made a number of landmark hardware and software improvements to the system, warranting the 2.0 suffix. The changes are designed to make Vivaldi easier to use, more flexible and even better sounding.
