Chord DSX 1000 High End Network Player

Combining simplistic interfaces with multi-award winning FPGA DAC technology and UPnP/DLNA compatibility is what makes a Chord streamer the most refined, satisfying, listening experience.

As low as £8,200.00

The DSX1000 is our flagship music streamer. A high-performance design, the DSX1000 directly benefits from our world-renowned proprietary DAC technology. The advanced FPGA architecture found inside the DSX1000, is the same technology as used in our DACs and CD players, giving the DSX1000 a significant sonic advantage over ordinary streamers with off-the-shelf DAC chips.

The DSX1000 naturally features UPnP/DLNA access and control, and because of its FPGA architecture, it is capable of transforming the sound of MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, ALAC and FLAC files, with 24-bit/192kHz and DSD64 support where available. The DSX1000’s streaming engine is directly coupled into our own DAC technology, which carefully re-clocks all data and removes unwanted jitter.

Key features include an in-built analogue volume control circuit as used in our CPA8000 Reference preamp, which gives highly accurate volume adjustment without the problems and low-level distortions associated with conventional digital volume controls, a full-colour 3.5-inch TFT front-panel display showing album artwork, set up options etc. plus, volume-controlled and line-level analogue outputs which feature both balanced XLR and RCA phono connections. The unit can be controlled using many of the UPnP apps available for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
