Regular price $4,500.00

The musicbook:15 DSD is equivalent to the musicbook: 10 DSD, but in addition offers a built-in CD player. It is a USB digital-to-analog converter with a superb sound quality, which enables the music reproduction from the computer in studio mastering quality. Resolutions of up to 384 kHz PCM and DSD 256 are easily handled. But there is more. It is also a quite outstanding CD player.

But the musicbook:15 DSD can do a lot more. The integrated analog preamp, which also doubles as an excellent headphone amp, allows the connection of a phono preamp and thus offers a consummate audiophile quality also with vinyl records.

In terms of technology the musicbook:15 DSD is definitely way ahead of the competition. Using a sophisticated recalculation all digital audio signals are converted into DSD 128/256, a data format which is highly esteemed by audiophiles worldwide. Thus the actual digital-analog conversion is reduced to a mere filtering of the DSD signal. This completely new approach is the secret behind the musicbook’s exceptionally good sound.
