Linnenberg Audio VIvace DAC DSD DXD

New Vivace 

In conjunction with a host computer (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) the VIVACE realises a high performance audio source without drawbacks. The playback of audio files at CD quality (1411 kbps) is absolutely comparable with the reproduction of a pure high class CD-player. The result you get from the VIVACE depends strongly on the resolution of the audio file you play and on the correct settings of your computer running the audio software. In contrast to a red book CD-player, a computer in conjunction with the USB input can play files with extremely high resolution and with different formats like WAV, FLAC or DFF (DSD bitstream). Such music files can be downloaded on specialist internet shops like, or to name but a few. The choice of music and the number of albums available is clearly limited today, but new releases show up every day. The big advantage here is that you are not bound to a certain format like SACD or DVD-Audio. Computer audio is future proof.

The second essential digital audio format is S/PDIF (Coax 1 + 2). The VIVACE supports sample rates up to 192kHz and bit depths up to 24bit. The S/PDIF inputs are intended for high performance CD drives as well as for © iphone / ipad / ipod docking stations. Here it builds the bridge to the playback of music collections stored on mobile devices.
