Pro-ject DAC Box DS DAC

Stepping into the Pro-ject room in the Venetian I spied an entire wall of little boxes--literally dozens of them. Norbert Schmied, from the company's US representatives, Sumiko, handily pointed me toward the DACs and Streamers.

New to CES this year is the company's DAC Box DS in a small compact package and retailing for $549. Features include 24/192 SPDIF, Toslink and async USB as well as PCM-1792 Burr-Brown DAC and 2 filter options.

Their web site says it uses the PCM-1792 DAC. Doesn't say if it will handle Native DSD.

I don't believe Jon's blog implies that this DAC handles DSD.

I wasn't thinking the blog implied that it did. Just wondering if native DSD is gonna be possible with this?

There are so many companies making DACs now. It wouldn't be a bad idea to include native DSD decoding as an added feature, whenever possible.
