ESS digital-to-analogue converter
Experience the same calibre of sound usually reserved for high-end home audio products, thanks to the ESS DAC chip – an industry-leading converter that realises optimum quality for all of your digital music files.
Bring every track closer to the original recording
Our DSEE HX™ technology injects more life into your music, upscaling compressed files to near High-Resolution Audio quality. Restoring the subtleties of the original recording simulates the sound of a live performance.
Because premium sound requires premium components
Beneath the beautiful brushed-aluminium finish and OLED display lie carefully engineered components that will revolutionise the way you listen. A high-precision clock generator works to improve digital-to-analogue conversion accuracy, while a separated digital block ensures minimal noise from interference. Each component has its own dedicated circuit to optimise performance.
Enjoy cleaner tone from a highly rigid chassis
The RSX-GS9 has the highest rigidity ever realised in a receiver chassis. This minimises internal and external vibrations, achieving ultra-low distortion even in a harsh in-car environment.
Separated chassis blocks for optimum performance
The dual-layer design of the chassis separates the analogue circuitry from the digital, preventing noise for uncompromised sound quality.
High-end operation amp components are used in the RSX-GS9’s analogue circuits for greater depth of sound and audio realism.
Our specialised audio capacitors work to deliver high fidelity sound with a bright, full-bodied tone.
The clock generator further refines digital-to-analogue conversion for precise, stable sound.
