Product Description

exaSound’s new e32 stereo flagship DAC is built on the success of its predecessor, the award winning e22. With a truly balanced design, a high power, high performance headphone amplifier and ultimate resolution volume control, the new e32 DAC is designed and manufactured entirely in Canada. Never has affordable digital sounded so true…
Only a handful of companies around the world have released a DAC based on the new, enhanced ES9028PRO monolithic DAC chip from ESS Technologies, the successor of their legendary ES9018S. Leveraging the world’s highest performance 32 bit Hyperstream technology, the ESS Sabre Pro series enabled us to create the next generation of Reference Class conversion. The e32 will bring out the true resolving power of your home system.

exaSound’s in–house design delivers world recognized, award winning sonic purity

  • ZeroJitter™ — a unique true asynchronous USB interface with error correction assures accurate data reception
  • ZeroResolutioLoss™ — an exclusive volume control with three–way volume synchronization
  • GalvanicInfinity™ — affords complete galvanic isolation for ultimate external noise reduction
  • FemtoMaster™ — our 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
  • Truly balanced design – yields the best analog noise performance and lowest distortion

Exceptional Value

  • Award winning, reference level fidelity at a sensible price
  • Vanishingly low noise and distortion with highly accurate and extended frequency response form the foundation for our natural, dynamic sound and ultimate subjective appreciation
  • Flexible connectivity, with simultaneous, independent balanced and unbalanced output stages means you’re always free to use the interface you want, or both at the same time

Benefits

  • Uncompromised fidelity — ENclusiv™ zero-configuration comprehensive sample rate support, all the way up to native DSD 256 (DSD4) and 32 bit PCM at 384 kHz/DXD.
  • Forget guesswork — Zero-configuration automatic filter selection for every format and sampling rate
  • Love the convenience — Synchronized simultaneous operation from IR Remote, device controls and software dashboard
  • Blackest blacks — Ultimate clean power, with 11 linear power conditioning stages, and an upgradable external power supply
  • Get lost in your music — Roon: the most engaging, enjoyable way to browse your music. Pending RoonReady certification enables fast and highly reliable auto–discovery for instant setup

INNOVATIVE DESIGN »« AFFORDABLE PERFECTION

The difference is obvious from your very first listen, even with an ordinary Compact Disc. The e32 DAC offers a very neutral presentation, and the more resolving your system, the better it can perform. With high quality HRA studio masters, you will hear the music literally as it was recorded, with nothing added and nothing taken away.

    Review by Audiostream
    Excellent Performance at an Affordable Price I was very impressed with the level of performance delivered by the new e32 DAC. Given its price of $3499, one is getting a DAC with sonic performance unobtainable several years ago at this price point. For a relatively small amount of money, one can add a good linear power supply to the mix for an additional bump in performance. The e32 has richness to the sound that is natural and not overly warm or full sounding. In fact, the basic sound of the e32 reminds me of the analog type sound that I have heard in DACs costing far more than the e32. Basic sonic characteristics also included a very well controlled dynamic low end, a wide and deep soundstage, a deep black background, and good detail retrieval in the midrange and high end. The e32 is totally fatigue-free and very musically engaging.

    I heard equally good performance with PCM and DSD files. The DAC’s ability to play DSD256 files was exemplary with no drop-outs or other extraneous noises using Roon or JRiver for the software player. The e32 had absolutely no problems moving from different formats or sampling rates. The ASIO driver I used for Windows was rock stable and worked flawlessly with a non-optimized (slimmed) Windows OS. Used with an optimized Windows OS (Audiophile Optimizer) contributed to additional sonic improvements. The e32 has demonstrated how to build a DAC that not only handles PCM files, but DSD files in a first-class manner with custom high performance Mac OS and Windows ASIO drivers. My compliments to George Klissarov and his design team for the superb evolutionary improvements found in the new e32 DAC.”
