Product Description

Oppo Sonica DAC couples the complete sound class of a conventional audiophile DAC with the ease and adaptability of a premium network player.

High Performance

Sonica DAC grants access to your choice of music in numerous diverse ways. It has the capability of a conventional DAC to enhance the audio presentation from PC through USB, as a high-resolution media player interpreting audio from linked USB memory devices, or even as a network streamer playing files from DLNA servers and over AirPlay and Bluetooth.

Premium DAC

Sonica DAC is armed with ES9038PRO HyperStream DAC. Sitting at the top of the ESS Sabre Pro series, this 32-bit DAC raises the standard for audio distinction with its superlative 140dB of vibrant range.

Audio Circuitry

Sonica DAC's auditory electrical system is driven by an enormous toroidal power converter, which offers grander proficiency and considerably lower external magnetic field intervention likened to old-style laminated steel core transformers.

Fully Balanced Design

Sonica DAC's acoustic output trail is wholly balanced from the DAC chip down to the XLR ports, and even the RCA yield signal is adapted from the balanced output. The composed strategy delivers superior common-mode sound elimination, expands signal excellence and leads to enhanced channel isolation by removing the conjoint ground return route.

Asynchronous USB DAC

Sonica DAC converts any computer into a high-performance audio basis by evading the usually low fidelity, meager quality DACs found in usual computer soundcards. The asynchronous transmission mode uses the great precision clock within the Sonica DAC instead of relying on the computer's clock. The USB DAC section supports PCM up to 32-bit and up to DSD512.

Play/Stream in High Res

On top of its outmoded DAC capabilities, Sonica DAC is also a high-resolution network player that can handle audio files up to 24-bit 192 kHz from files such as FLAC, WAV and ALAC in addition to DSD64 files from DLNA servers and attached USB drives. Sonica DAC facilitates Apple AirPlay, which enables streaming from iTunes, iOS devices, and OS X computers to Sonica DAC over a network. Additionally, Bluetooth inserts an extra level of expediency, permitting rapid connection to your mobile devices to Sonica DAC to stream music.

Easy Multi-Room Integration

Sonica DAC transports high-resolution music reproduction, network streaming and portable device connection to your current hi-fi system. Part of the Oppo Sonica range, the AUX input enables you to link an existing analogue source to the Sonica multi-zone network. Insert some Sonica wireless speakers and experience your beloved tunes wherever you are in the house.

Control via Sonica App

Sonica DAC is regulated through a dedicated app for smartphones and tablets, sanctioning easy discovery and access of DLNA/USB content or streaming services such as Tidal and Spotify. Run the app on a friend’s phones too to add variety. The same app controls Sonica Wi-Fi speakers too placing you in the conductor’s seat.

Easy Connection

Sonica DAC gives both XLR balanced and RCA single-ended outputs, which can be fixed to volume-controlled or sidestep, making it appropriate for linking to either pre or power amplifiers. 12V trigger input and output enable you to switch the entire audio system on or off with a single click. Also through the USB DAC input and network streaming, Sonica DAC offers coaxial and optical digital inputs for further digital sources.

Contemporary OLED Display

Sonica DAC dons a classic aluminium framework with conversant volume and source selection buttons. A 2.8” OLED display accompanies the brushed front board, presenting status of the present volume and thorough data regarding the audio signal.

    This is a superb product that will not dissapoint. Very quick and easy to set up. Had no problems setting up via wifi using the sonica app. I use this dac with a fiio x7 dap , roksan k2 cd player, rokan k2 amp and roksan tr5 speakers, windows laptop. No matter what inputs you use on the dac it sounds outstanding. Very detailed sound with well defined bass. The soundstage is huge! It has taken my cd playback to another level. High res flac files and dsd files are truly stunning. I have a streaming account with qobuz and its hugely enjoyable via the sonica. I read that the dac gets hot in use but i have not found that to be the case in my set up. Build quality is superb. I have no negative comments to make at all. I bought this to replace a schiit modi multi bit dac and its worth every penny.
