Introducing the DMS-800 Professional Version (PV): The Ultimate Network Audio Player/Streamer/DAC

Experience the pinnacle of audio perfection with the limited-edition marvel, the DMS-800 Professional Version (PV). Building upon the success of its predecessor, the DMS-700, we set out to create a no holds barred version that surpasses even the best in the world of Network Audio Players, Streamers, and DACs.

The DMS-800PV embodies the essence of our renowned DMS platform, taking it to unprecedented heights. If the DMS-700 offers an analog-like experience, the DMS-800PV is the epitome of analog sound. With its larger, deeper, wider, and smoother audio performance, this exceptional device unveils the true essence of each instrument recorded, providing a multidimensional insight into the music. Prepare to immerse yourself in a lifelike audio experience like never before.

Internally, the DMS-800PV boasts a dual mono design, effectively doubling the components of the esteemed DMS-700. Unlike its predecessor, which features a single digital/analog stage board and a single current output switched resistor 4-channel AK4499EQ DAC (equivalent to 4 DACs), the DMS-800PV incorporates separate right and left channel digital/analog stage boards. Each board is equipped with its own 4-channel current output switched resistor AK4499EQ DAC, resulting in a remarkable total of 8 individual DAC channels. This advanced configuration ensures a true fully balanced dual differential circuit.

Moreover, the DMS-800PV incorporates a range of enhancements, including a Crystek Oscillator Clock, two separate DSP driver stages, 14 groups of independent regulated power supplies, and two independent groups of analog stage regulation power supplies. These additions further refine the overall performance and deliver unparalleled audio quality.

The DMS-800PV showcases a larger 5" high-resolution display and a slightly taller stance compared to previous DMS models. Behind its sleek exterior lies a marvel of circuitry design, meticulously optimized for power regulation, as well as digital and analog circuitry.

Experience audio excellence like never before with the DMS-800 Professional Version (PV), the ultimate Network Audio Player/Streamer/DAC. Elevate your music listening to new heights with its unrivaled performance and meticulous attention to detail in every aspect of its design.
