High Performance Audio and Versatility
Sonica DAC pairs the absolute sound quality of a traditional audiophile DAC with the convenience and versatility of a high resolution network player. Whether you're connecting a computer via USB, or streaming from DLNA servers on your computer or NAS drives, Sonica DAC ensures that you're hearing your favorite music at its best.
Music Without Limits
Sonica DAC allows you to access your favorite music in many different ways. It can be used as a traditional DAC to improve the audio performance from your computer via USB, as a high resolution media player decoding audio from connected USB storage devices, or even as a network streamer playing content from DLNA servers and via AirPlay and Bluetooth.
Convenient Control and Connectivity
Sonica DAC is controlled via a dedicated app for smartphones and tablets, allowing you to easily find and access content from DLNA servers, connected USB drives, and streaming services such as Tidal and Spotify.
Top of the Line Digital to Analog Performance
Sonica DAC is equipped with ESS Technology's ES9038PRO 32-bit HyperStream DAC. As the flagship of the ESS SABRE PRO series, the ES9038PRO sets a new benchmark for audio excellence with its best in class 140 dB of dynamic range.
Clean Power for Clear Music
Sonica DAC's audio circuitry is powered by a massive toroidal power transformer, which offers superior efficiency and significantly lower exterior magnetic field interference compared to traditional laminated steel core transformers.
Fully Balanced Design
Sonica DAC's audio output path is fully balanced from the DAC chip all the way to the XLR outputs, and even the RCA output signal is converted from the balanced output. The balanced design provides better common-mode noise rejection, improves signal quality, and results in better channel separation by eliminating the common ground return path.
Play and Stream High Resolution Music
In addition to its traditional DAC capabilities, Sonica DAC is also a high resolution network player that can decode audio files up to 24-bit 192 kHz from formats such as FLAC, WAV, and Apple Lossless, as well as DSD64 files from DLNA servers and connected USB drives.
Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth
Sonica DAC supports Apple AirPlay, which allows you to stream your music from iTunes, iOS devices, and OS X computers to Sonica DAC through your network. In addition, Bluetooth support adds another layer of convenience, allowing you to quickly connect your mobile devices to Sonica DAC to stream music.
Asynchronous USB DAC
Sonica DAC turns any computer into a high performance audio source by bypassing the typically low fidelity, poor quality DACs found in traditional computer soundcards. The asynchronous transfer mode uses the high precision clock inside the Sonica DAC rather than relying on the computer's clock. The USB DAC input supports PCM up to 768 kHz 32-bit and up to DSD512.
Easy Integration with the Sonica Multi-Room Speaker System
Sonica DAC brings high-resolution audio playback, network streaming, and mobile device connection to your existing home audio system. As a member of the OPPO Sonica product family, the AUX input of Sonica DAC enables you to connect existing analog audio source to the Sonica multi-room network. Add some Sonica Wi-Fi speakers and enjoy your favorite tunes anywhere in the house.
