Quick Overview


The DSD-SR is APL Hi-Fi’s Digital to Analog converter, specifically made for those enthusiastic audiophiles who search for a no compromise digital audio reproduction offered by an all-solid-state DAC design.

It is an all-hand-made boutique, designed and built with the best possible audio quality in mind for its price-range.

Just like the DSD-MR reference converter, the DSD-SR is inspired by vinyl sound quality, and it provides a comparable rich and spacious sonic character.

From the double DSD processing rate, to the MOSFET Class A output stage, the DSD-SR offers a high level of technology advancement and refinement.

The DSD-SR is based on a modular design, allowing a cost-effective future upgradability of any internal stage.
