Creating dCS Lina

dCS has been shaping the future of digital audio for over 30 years, developing unique products and technologies that have revolutionised music recording and playback. Over the past 35 years, we have developed pioneering products and proprietary technologies for music lovers and recording professionals – from the first-ever high-resolution DACs and ADCs to the multi-award-winning dCS Bartok Headphone DAC.

The highly successful Bartók streaming headphone DAC was our first foray into head-fi. After more than two years of intensive development, we are introducing dCS Lina, a new purpose-built system for headphone listening. In our latest video, we hear from the engineers, designers, and managing director David Steven, who together explore the creative journey and design objectives for Lina. It’s a candid look at the challenges and triumphs we experienced along the way to creating the most technically advanced head-fi products available today.
