dCS Network Bridge

Up at the top of the Mirage hotel in the dCS suite, instead of a flashy new flagship product, the company was formally introducing something of a more practical nature: the dCS Network Bridge. The Network Bridge will allow owners of older dCS products to add networking to their existing systems. Audiophiles with other brand DACs can also use the dCS Network Bridge to add networking to their systems.

According to dCS, the Network Bridge enables you to stream high resolution music files from network attached storage, connected USB drives, online streaming services (such as Tidal and Spotify) as well as Apple devices via Apple Airplay. The Network Bridge is also Roon Ready and can support PCM streams up to 24/384 as well as DSD 64&128.

There is also a Network Bridge app (the same as used with the company's Vivaldi series) providing full control of your music library, wired and wireless streaming, and the input, output and clock settings. Price is $4250 and the Network Bridge is shipping now.
