exaSound Unveils New s88 8-Channel Streaming DAC

Toronto ON - exaSound Audio Design, manufacturer of innovative, exceptional fidelity audio products, announces the new flagship s88 8-channel Streaming DAC.

Featuring a reference-grade 32-bit digital-to-analog converter, Roon-Ready streamer and headphone amplifier in stylish full-size mono-block enclosure, the s88 excels with its ergonomic simplicity and sonic perfection. With refinements like autonomous balanced and unbalanced I/V stages and industry-best ES9038PRO monolithic DAC, s88 brings the best out of every high-resolution audio stream.

In addition to Roon, s88 supports streaming with Signalyst HQPlayer, UPnP, AirPlay and online services Tidal and Qobuz. Stereo and multichannel streams and files are played with uncompromised fidelity side-by-side in their native format, resolution and number of channels.

Zero-configuration comprehensive sampling rate support extends all the way up to 8-channels native DSD256 (Quad DSD) and 32 bit PCM/384kHz. In Stereo mode s88 supports native DSD512.

  • ZeroJitter™, a unique true asynchronous USB interface with error correction, assures accurate data streaming.
  • ZeroResolutioLoss™, an exclusive volume control with three–way volume synchronization, brings convenience while maintaining the highest sonic fidelity. Acceleration-sensing volume knob enables ultimate 0.5dB volume precision.
  • GalvanicInfinity™ affords complete galvanic isolation for ultimate external noise reduction.
  • FemtoMaster™, exaSound's quad-clock architecture, with 82 femtosecond master clock and 3 auxiliary stream-control clocks, minimizes jitter for maximum timing accuracy, image development and bass extension.
s88 is a multi-level device offering easy-to-use and advanced configurations. The eight discrete DAC channels can be configured for use with four-way digital crossovers for horn and open-baffle speakers.

In-house designed and hand-made in Canada, exaSound devices deliver award winning, reference level sonic fidelity. Vanishingly low noise and distortion with highly accurate and extended frequency response form the foundation for natural, dynamic sound and ultimate subjective appreciation.
