Le DAC By Metronome is joining Le Player with the same philosophy of product positioning: to offer the same high quality of making and quality of sound reproduction as much more expensive products designed and made under the brand Metronome.

Both products are made in Metronome’s workshops after being designed in Metronome’s design office, having the objective to propose “a high-end device with a smart price”.

Metronome told us: “Le DAC By Metronome will not surprise anyone who had been following the French brand for some years. The external design is classic, and Le DAC dimensions and materials have already been seen on many products : massive alloy front plate, 2mm-thick steel chassis, Delrin® feet. Inside the box are also present the essential elements of a Metronome’s top-range DAC, Asahi Kasei’s conversion processor, high-end electronic components, and the famous Métronome’s power supplies savoir-faire”.

Jean Marie Clauzel, Owner and Designer of Metronome Technologie says: “Year after year, one of my goals is to provide more affordable products to our audiophile followers. Le Player was already conceived with that philosophy, but we did lack a comparable pure D/A converter. I’m happy and proud that now we have it, and I must say that this one do not have to blush in front of other DACs ! Listen and be amazed!”

Le DAC will be shipping in January 2019, it is available in Silver and Black finishes, and the Manufacturer Suggested Retail price is 5,700.00 euros.
