About the DMC-600 Digital Music Center

The DMC-600 Digital Music Center combines the past with the future and is designed for traditionalists as well as new-age music lovers. Now, one can continue to enjoy their extensive CD collection while exploring the virtues of high resolution and super high resolution Asynchronous USB computer audio. The DMC-600 supports PCM up to 32 bit/ 384 kHz native audio as well as native DSD 64 and 128 audio. Additionally, the DMC-600 includes; CSR aptX® lossless Bluetooth, SPDIF coaxial and Toslink inputs, AES/EBU inputs and both fully balanced XLR and RCA outputs. To further enhance your listening enjoyment, The DMC-600 also includes our TruBit™ Upsampling technology and our DiO™ vacuum tube and solid state analog outputs, as well as many other benchmark features.
