exaSound offers the purest and most transparent processing of digital audio files. The sound is very neutral, and the more resolving the system, the better it can perform. With the very best recordings the air and realism around the performance is scary. Nothing added, nothing taken away.


exaSound's DAC’s have always stayed ahead of the curve, and the latest DSD 256 capability not only goes beyond the capabilities of all other DAC’s on the market today, it is ahead of current recording technology. This ensures that audiophiles will be enjoying studio master files the way they were recorded – without down-sampling or down-conversion – well into the future, without equipment upgrades. Detailed measurements, specifications and subjective impressions are available throughout this website.
