New Metronome LE DAC


LE DAC by METRONOME is actually joining LE PLAYER with the same philosophy of product positioning: to offer the same high quality of making and quality of sound reproduction as much more expensive products designed and made under the brand METRONOME. Both products are made in METRONOME’s workshops after being designed in METRONOME’s design office, having the objective to propose a high-end device with a smart price.

LE DAC by METRONOME will not surprise anyone who had been interesting to the brand for some years. The external design is classic, and LE DAC dimensions and materials have already been seen on many products : massive alloy front plate, 2mm-thick steel chassis, Delrin® feet.


Inside the box are also present the essential elements of a Metronome’s top-range DAC :  Asahi Kasei’s conversion processor, high-end electronic components, and the famous Métronome’s power supplies savoir-faire. LE DAC will be shipping in January 2019, it is available in Silver and Black finishes, and the Manufacturer Suggested Retail price is 5,700.00 euros.
