GeerFab Audio D.BOB (Digital BreakOut Box)


The GeerFab Audio Digital BreakOut Box (D.BOB) extracts DSD64 and up to 24-bit/192kHz PCM from discs to an external digital audio converter. Unlock the DSD64 and hi-res PCM from your SACDs and Blu-ray Audio discs, then output the data stream to an external DAC for D/A conversion with full HD copy protection.

GeerFab Audio D.BOB was recently nominated for a NAMM TEC Award for Technical Excellence – Production Essentials.
