Founded in Cambridge, UK, by a group of expert electronic engineers, Data Conversion Systems originally designed and manufactured high performance analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs) for major telecommunications companies and military agencies, whose primary requirement was technology that delivered state-of-the-art precision, linearity and reliability. Today the company now exclusively designs and manufactures state-of-the-art digital audio playback systems for the home.
Get To Know dCS
After successful ventures in the fields of telecommunications and military aerospace contracting, dCS turned its attention to the burgeoning field of digital audio recording and playback. The company applied its expertise in digital processing and conversion, along with an agnostic approach to solving the flaws inherent in early digital record/playback systems, to quickly establish itself as a pioneer in the field.
Why We Love dCS
"dCS makes the finest digital products in the world. Their build quality is a thing of beauty and their Ring DAC technology is second to none in linearity. It makes bits sound like grooves. Owning a dCS product gives you the comfortable confidence to know it will sound better with age. Not because of some crazy long break-in period, but because it will be regularly receiving programming updates that make it sound even more amazing. For over 30 years they have produced products that make listening to music enjoyable and reliable. My personal experience has been second to none as the company and the products are truly exceptional."
