Jeff Rowland Aeris DAC

Quick Overview

Jeff Rowland Aeris DAC with Volume Control

Nexus of time and space;  dynamic gateway between digital and analogue worlds. HYBRID from Latin aerius – ‘air’ or ‘atmosphere,’ and late Latin aera – denoting an epoch from which time is reckoned.

The Aeris is the product of a close collaboration between Jeff Rowland Design Group and Holm Acoustics, a Danish company founded by Thomas Holm that specializes in signal processing products for high end audio applications.

The Aeris is much more than the successful result of a synergistic collaboration between the two companies. The high degree of complementary synergy between the two teams working in parallel can only be defined as a case of true organic design.
