High End 2017 Hot Product
You know that the world is changing when dCS, the British digital specialist that celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and has always been keen on multi-chassis systems, opts to build a one-box high-end solution. But thats what dCS showed at the High End show. The 60-pound Vivaldi One ($80,000), based on the flagship Vivaldi 2.0 transport and DAC, right down to the Ring DAC and TEAC/Esoteric Neo transport mechanism, will be limited to 250 units worldwide.
The Vivaldi One is a CD/SACD player, streamer, USB DAC and digital preamp thats Roon ready and will have its own dedicated control app by the time it ships at the end of June.
The $80,000 price is for the standard anodized silver and black finishes, but there are also gloss-black and gloss-white finishes alongside a distinctly shiny 24-karat gold option, with its sights on certain sectors of the market.
