Description

Absolute Sounds, the exclusive distributor for dCS products in the UK, the Republic of Ireland and Portugal, ecstatically announces the UK's first dealer experience of the game-changing dCS Vivaldi One all-in-one digital sound centre. 

This is a rare opportunity for discerning music lovers to experience the latest developments from the British digital audio pioneer dCS, including the Vivaldi One – probably the finest single-box digital audio player in the world. 


This amazing example of precision digital audio engineering will be produced as a limited edition of only 250. Available in different colour schemes, including Classic dCS Black or Silver, Gloss White, Piano Black and 30 finished in 24k gold. Its specification represents the culmination of all digital audio technology to date, with obsolescence precluded by a software and firmware updating programme for future functionality and performance upgrades. 


Just look at the spec!

The Vivaldi One is based around its integral Esoteric VRDS NEO transport for CD and SACD playback. Its electronic brain incorporates the latest generation dCS Ring DAC 2.0 and digital processing platform in one box. Its digital inputs include Gigabit network, asynchronous USB, AES, BNC and S/PDIF, while the processing connectivity is served by built-in Roon, TIDAL, Apple Airplay and Spotify Connect functionality. 

Vivaldi One's control app lets listeners manage their playback from any source. The network streaming section runs at up to 24-bit, 384kS/s and DSD128, supporting all major lossless codecs including the latest specification of MQA, plus DSD in DoP format and native DSD. The unit also features multi-stage power regulation and twin mains transformers. 



Based in the beautiful medieval city of Norwich, our host, Martins Hi-Fi, are well established dCS dealers. Their seasoned team, supported by dCS' sales director Raveen Bawa and Pedro Jorge Luis of Absolute Sounds will be present to answer all of your questions.



Visitors can also trial the Network Bridge, a hi-res network streaming device that delivers an unrivalled combination of sound quality, facilities, stability and ease of use.
