dCS, the British digital audio component manufacturer, has announced the Vivaldi digital playback system. Vivaldi is a four box digital system which represents the “pinnacle of their ‘no compromise’ approach to product design” and which the company claims sets a new standard for the future of digital audio playback.

Comprising separate Digital to Digital Upsampler, CD/SACD Transport, DAC and Master Clock, the Vivaldi is a “radical redesign and major enhancement of the dCS architecture”. It can be used a four box system or as a combination using one or more of the individual components.

Vivaldi has been designed to play music from any source and can process all high-res musical formats up to DXD plus DSD.

Over the coming months the system will be premiered at the following events:

China – Elegant Music Garden, Guangzhou, August 17-18 2012

United States – Ears Nova, NYC, September 16-17 2012

United Kingdom – National Audio Show, September 22-23 2012

Japan – Tokyo International Audio Show, November 2-4 2012
