exaSound Audio Design Launches e28 DAC

e28 Release Provides Listeners with the Ultimate in Multichannel DSD Sound Reproduction

TORONTO, September 24, 2013 - exaSound Audio Design today announces the immediate availability of the e28 Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC). The e28 is the world’s first high-end, eight-channel DAC capable of DSD playback at a 12.288MHz (DSD256) sampling rate. The e28 extends exaSound’s line of high-end DAC’s and offers music lovers a new level of performance unobtainable from any DAC currently offered in the marketplace.

“The e28 represents another market first for exaSound and marks an important move in broadening our product portfolio,” said George Klissarov, President of exaSound Audio Design. “The predecessor to the e28, the e20 MK III, was the only consumer-oriented DAC capable of achieving DSD256 at 12.288 MHz. With the release of the e28, we have again extended that performance level by introducing multichannel sound capability and a third-generation headphone amplifier.”

exaSound's mission is to allow music lovers to enjoy any studio-master file the way it is recorded, in stereo or multichannel, in PCM or native DSD, without down-sampling or down-conversion.

The new performance features offered in the e28 will allow music lovers to experience an unmatched level of audio reproduction. While the e20 supported the reproduction of two-channel recordings, the e28 supports recordings of all formats and channel configurations without users having to change any device settings. In addition, the e28 supports the reproduction of up to eight-channels without compromising the e20’s exceptionally high sampling rates.

With the eight-channel capability of the e28, listeners can recreate the three-dimensional richness captured in multichannel recordings: the ambience of the original recording venue, or the in-orchestra soundstage experience from the aural vantage point of the performing musicians. For those who like to listen through headphones, the headphone amplifier on the e28 offers more power with less distortion, thus allowing a wider range of headphones to be used with the device.

The e20 Mk III and the e28 are the first consumer DACs introduced in the marketplace which are capable of covering a range of formats, from PCM up to 384 KHz/32bit, and DSD up to 12.288 MHz. Like its predecessor, the e20, the e28 has exceptionally low levels of jitter, distortion and noise, while creating an astonishingly clean analog-like sound.
