A new D/A converter with streaming and acoustic correction from French brand, B.audio.

French manufacturer, B.audio, has brought new enhancements to its DACs, which benefit of a series of new features under the EX label. These include a network input giving access to streaming functionalities, as well as a USB slot for direct connection of storage media. Additionally, a DSP-based acoustic correction feature offers a wide range of possibilities for adjusting to the listening environment.

This new “extended” version of the B.dac, the B.dac EX is a response to many requests for network playback and D/A conversion functionalities in a single product.

The B.dac EX is a new DAC with streaming and acoustic correction from French brand, B.audio.

Technology

The streaming inputs are optimally interfaced with B.audio’s patented Source Jitter Removal (SJR) technology – a process that they tell us effectively eliminates 100% of the source jitter.

Network Functionalities

The available features include compatibility with protocols UPnP, MPD, LMS, NAA, Roon, Airplay and Spotify. Access to streaming services (Qobuz, Tidal, Spotify …) via compatible iOS and Android applications. Playback of various formats: PCM up to 384kHz / DXD / DoP / native DSD up to DSD 256 plus an integrated cloud / UPnP server which makes data stored on USB media accessible over the network.

Acoustic Correction

The onboard DSP features parametric acoustic correction allowing you to make the best out of the listening environment. In-house developed, this functionality is based on 64-bit architecture. The overall gain is determined automatically without user intervention, which guarantees the absence of saturation regardless of the parameters used. These specific features preserve the signal quality, thereby ensuring an optimal result.

Variants

The technology integrated in the B.dac EX is also available on the B.dpr EX (which includes a preamplification stage, as well as on the digital products of the One series).

The B.dac EX and all its variants will be available as of February 1st, 2021, price of the B.dac EX is 13,200€, other EX variants start from 8590€ for the B.dac one EX
