Description

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

The e62 DAC is based on the enhanced ES9028PRO monolithic DAC chip from ESS. 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 e62 will bring out the true resolution power of your audio system.

  • ZeroJitter™ — a unique true asynchronous USB interface with error correction assures accurate data reception
  • ZeroResolutionLoss™ — 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

Roon

Roon offers engaging, enjoyable way to browse your music. Via intelligent automatic cloud service library management, Roon delivers metadata for the user’s library and frees the user from the complexities of music library management.

e68 is a Roon Tested DAC. It has been profiled and tested by both Roon Labs and exaSound for maximum compatibility with the Roon software and service. Roon identifies exaSound devices and sends them audio optimized for their capabilities. Together, Roon and exaSound deliver the power, flexibility, and performance benefits of digital audio, with the easiest setup and highest reliability available.

 

 

 

 

Streaming Options

The exaSound Sigma Streamer turns any exaSound DAC into a network-connected device. It offers master-quality Tidal and Qobuz streaming with Roon and UPnP. Sigma Streamer delivers seamless, top-quality sound over wired or wireless connection, accessing high-resolution streaming services and local files. Sigma Streamer can be used with computer-based audio servers or with optimized streaming servers like the exaSound Gamma Server and Delta Server.

Bundle pricing is available for the e62 DAC in combination with the Sigma Streamer.

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

Innovative Design »« Affordable Perfection

The difference is obvious from your very first listen, even with an ordinary Compact Disc. The e62 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.

Power Supply Options

exaSound DACs are powered by external 12V power supply. The e68 uses 15 internal linear power conditioning stages in cascaded configuration. Every subsystem is powered by dedicated power source. This sophisticated power conditioning makes the e68 very insensitive to the quality of the external power supply.

The e68 DAC is sold with a desktop style switching power supply included. Customers interested in using a premium quality linear power source have the option to order the e68 DAC bundled with a Teddy Pardo power supply.
