Direct Stream Digital (DSD) playback for High-Resolution Audio

Enjoy studio-quality sound, thanks to the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio codec — designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio. This 1-bit format utilizes a stream of very high frequency 1s and 0s to recreate audio waveforms at a higher resolution than conventional codecs. The result is clearer, crisper, High-Resolution Audio quality.
