Eximus DP1 Digital Analogue Converter / Pre and Headphone Amplifier

Probably the best PCM 192kHz 24bit converter, with line level inputs and analogue volume control.

The Eximus DP1 is a high-end digital to analogue converter up to 192kHz/24Bit, which can also be used as a pure preamplifier and top-quality headphone amplifier. The Eximus DP1 has 6 digital inputs including USB 2.0. Each input supports playback of files up to 192kHz/24Bit (44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192kHz). For USB, this is accomplished with the ultimate USB 2.0 solution from XMOS with its super-quality oscillators (2 separate oscillators for the multiples of 44.1 and 48kHz).

Alex Rasmussen of A-Rex/Neal Feay designed the chassis cosmetics. Alex owns a full-capacity machine shop in Santa Barbara, CA and is famous for his remarkable industrial designs for Ayre, Constellation Audio, Resolution Audio and many others. The basic design concept of the chassis is the leaf. It represents springtime and with it the month of April like their company name. The volume control, engraved details on the top and all the lines are based on this leaf theme.

The Eximus DP1 may be used anywhere and for all HiFi and recording/mastering applications. It can sit on your desktop next to a notebook computer, in a studio monitoring environment, as a headphone amplifier on a night stand or as your main DAC/preamplifier in a high-end playback system. All you need are matching headphones, a pair of powered small loudspeakers or a conventional HiFi system. For those who want a small but high-quality matching power amplifier, April Music will soon release the Eximus S1 power amplifier in exactly the same chassis and design which can be additionally bridged for larger spaces and higher output power (Oct 2011).

The Eximus DP1 is deliberately small, very beautiful and musically correct for music lovers. As soon as you hear the first note, you will easily identify the natural musicality of the DP1. The music is simply there – no more, no less. Now all you have to do is forget the equipment and enjoy!
