New Métronome DSC DAC + streamer + digital pre-amp

Jean Marie Clauzel – Métronome writes: “Why do few when you can do more? This is the anthem at Métronome with the new DSC, member of the Digital Sharing family. Except the famous piano-like front plate characteristic of the range, everything is new inside, resulting in a very high-end digital source meeting the highest requirements of the actual market.”

At Métronome’s, Digital Sharing stands for streaming. But with this new DSC, the offer is much more complete: a high-end D/A converter, including streaming and network playing functionality, added with a patented digital volume control which makes it a performant pre-amplifier. The DSC is housed into a full aluminum chassis, opening at the front with a 5 inches touchscreen like on almost all Métronome devices since a couple of years. The DAC will decode as well PCM files, and DSD up to 512, while the new streaming board accepts all types of audio files up to DSD256.

The DSC can be managed with any DLNA/UPnP apps, but is particularly adapted to the reliable mConnect control, which embeds the main audiophile streaming services as Qobuz, Tidal, Spotify, Deezer, and vTuner for internet radios.

The digital pre-amp results from a partner-ship with Leedh Processing, and is fully lossless, only modifying the signal amplitude without any further changes.

Jean Marie Clauzel, Owner and Designer of Metronome Technologie, precises: “Our Digital Sharing range has grown in popularity, showing that our choice to move the company to streaming was the right one. Plug-and-play, easy to use and stable, this is what we want with all our products, but as everyone knows the famous Métronome sound will always remain our first priority!”
