Audiophile DAC & Network Streamer

  • ESS ES9038PRO SABRE DAC
  • High Resolution Audio Player
  • App Control via Smartphones and Tablets

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 favourite music at its best.

Music Without Limits - Sonica DAC allows you to access your favourite 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 Analogue 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.

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.

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.

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 analogue audio source to the Sonica multi-room network. Add some Sonica Wi-Fi speakers and enjoy your favourite tunes anywhere in the house.

Control via Sonica App - Use the free Sonica app on your smartphone or tablet to stream and control your music. Invite friends to join the party by running the app on their phones too. The same Sonica app also controls Sonica Wi-Fi speakers that you may have. With the Sonica app, you are in the conductor’s seat.

Easy Connection with Source Components and Amplifiers - Sonica DAC provides both XLR balanced and RCA single-ended outputs, and the outputs can be set to volume-controlled or bypass, making it suitable for connecting to either pre-amps or power amplifiers. 12V trigger input and output make it possible to turn on and off the entire audio system with one click. In addition to the USB DAC input and network streaming, Sonica DAC also offers coaxial and optical digital inputs for additional digital audio sources.

Classic Design with Contemporary OLED Display - Sonica DAC sports a classic aluminium chassis with the familiar volume and source selection knobs. A 2.8-inch OLED display complements the brushed metal front panel, offering read out of the current volume and detailed information about the audio signal.
