Digital to analog converter

The ES9038PRO SABRE DAC is the flagship of the ESS PRO series. It sets a new benchmark for audio excellence with the highest dynamic range in the industry (DNR), up to 140dB, in a 32-bit, 8-channel DAC.

 

The ES9038PRO DAC also features ESS ‘32-bit HyperStreamDAC patented technology with total harmonic distortion plus noise 122dB (THD + N). The HyperStream architecture is responsible for both the excellent sound quality of the ES9038PRO and the extremely low THD + N.

 

It has a very low distortion, a very wide bandwidth and little noise. The technical performance of the DAC is on par with any other higher-priced DAC. The signal to noise ratio is -116dB (weighted ‘A’), the frequency response is flat across the bandwidth and the distortion is 0.0052% at 1kHz. These figures guarantee a completely neutral and accurate digital to analog conversion of any digital input. Includes USB input, DSD compatible (only under Windows).

 

As usual in the brand, the whole set has been put into a monobloc chassis of aluminum mechanized by CNC where the different sections have been compartmentalized to avoid interference between them. Thus, we have managed to reduce the noise figure to the minimum level to obtain maximum pleasure in listening to our favorite music.
