The first step that High End French brand, Métronome, took into the streaming world was at the end of 2017, with the launching of the Digital Sharing range. The DSS, Digital Sharing Streamer, is the second product of this product line, and the first streaming transport at Métronome, following on from the DSC1 connected DAC.

Métronome’s designer Clauzel decided to keep the piano design of the DS range and reduce the size of the housing in order to give a smaller footprint (25x25x7cm = 9.8×9.8×2.8 in). The blue detail and blue logo on the front plate are a remembrance nod to the blue LEDs which have lit all the CD players of the brand for years.


Perfectly plug-and-play, DSS will accept all files formats in PCM up to 384 kHz and DSD64, streamed through ethernet or Wi-Fi, and is MQA compatible. Being UPnP and DLNA certified, it is thus usable with all player Apps under those protocols. It is also ROON compatible and Airplay 1 and Airplay 2 certified.

Jean Marie Clauzel, Owner and Designer of Métronome, emphasises that: “The most important in this case was to make a robust and easy product, while maintaining the sound quality level of our production.”
