e22 DAC

Our flagship model, the e22 is a third generation DSD 256 DAC.

It offers the highest digital audio resolution, vanishingly low jitter, distortion and noise levels, and astonishingly clean analog-like sound. The difference is obvious, even with an ordinary CD. With the very best recordings the air and realism around the performance is scary!

e28 DAC

The e28 DAC brings together DSD256 and the thrill of a multi-channel sound stage perfected for music experience.
No other device can play with such simplicity anything that you can throw at it - multi-channel and stereo at any sampling rate - PCM up to 384 kHz and 2.8 to 12.2 MHz DSD. The e28 can handle all of it in the same playlist - without changing a single configuration setting.

In-house developed custom drivers, galvanic isolation and proprietary asynchronous USB interface give the e12 what it takes to compete with the best-sounding DACs on the market today.

exaSound offers the purest and most transparent processing of digital audio files. The sound is very neutral, and the more resolving the system, the better it can perform. With the very best recordings the air and realism around the performance is scary. Nothing added, nothing taken away.


exaSound's DAC’s have always stayed ahead of the curve, and the latest DSD 256 capability not only goes beyond the capabilities of all other DAC’s on the market today, it is ahead of current recording technology. This ensures that audiophiles will be enjoying studio master files the way they were recorded – without down-sampling or down-conversion – well into the future, without equipment upgrades. Detailed measurements, specifications and subjective impressions are available throughout this website.



If you are tired of listening to compressed audio and your desire is to instead play uncompressed, original recording quality sound, this is your one stop shop!

Native is striding to provide audiophile listeners a focused resource for native DSD recorded stereo and multichannel studio masters, directly from those labels recording in DSD.

Mulitchannel DSD downloads give you the ability to enjoy digital multichannel audio at its very best. Multichannel digital technology 'translates' the music into accurate and focused voice localization. It places you at the heart of a three-dimensional sound stage, as if you were in the audience.
