Gold Note DS-10 DAC Streamer

The most complete D/A converter.

DS-10 represents the state of the art among our digital signal decoding electronics, but it is much more than a DAC. The experience gained with the top of the line model DS-1000 and the addition of innovative features of the IS-1000 integrated amp and streamer have led us to designing this smaller all-in-one unit: a DAC, Streamer and line preamplifier with AES-EBU digital inputs typical of the professional market, a headphone output and advanced connectivity to use all available streaming services and much more for a fresh and new experience of digital music at an accessible High-End level.

The DS-10 is our new 4-in-1 unit designed to cover the needs of the contemporary audiophile. It perfectly completes any audio system offering internet and digital connectivity with the purity of the premium Gold Note High-End audio sound performance. All this high-technology is brilliantly enclosed in a convenient compact sized and eye-catching chassis. The DS-10 is a new generation D/A Converter and UPnP-DLNA Streamer, created to revolutionise any audio system with its ability to browse web streaming players and digital sources. Inspired by Gold Note’s acclaimed top models, it merges the extended connectivity features of the IS-1000 All-In-One unit adding an impressive headphones double power GAIN output to drive the most demanding models. It also features, for the first time on a High-End audio product, the exceptional high-resolution Bluetooth 5.0.

The DS-10 is a Roon Ready device, fully multi-room system compatible with a quick plug&play installation. You simply need to connect it to your network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) and then to the power amplifier or active speakers to be ready to start exploring the limitless possibilities of online music. You can stream through Roon, Airplay, Tidal, MQA , Qobuz, Spotify and Deezer, controlling everything with our easy to use App on your phone or tablet (available for iOS and Android for free). You can also access all your collections of digital music stored locally on a NAS or USB flash drive (DSD64 on USB and LAN, PCM up to 24/192).

By letting you access the factory settings, the DS-10 becomes one of the most versatile D/A converters on the market. The sound behaviour can be changed to adapt the music played to the taste of the listener without modifying the audio signal but only adjusting the electrical profiles, acting on the deemphasis, the low- pass digital filters and the power applied to the digital chip. Such profiles can be managed and stored in real time during music playback for maximum convenience and a unique listening experience.

The DS-10 is a magical musical box that brings digital music to an unprecedented High-End audiophile pleasure, giving you access to all the music in the world without any concession on sound quality.

This is my first experience of streaming and itís proving a great facility to try new albums and artists and to fill gaps in my collection. I tried a NAD C658 prior to buying the DS-10 and found it very uneven-handed, sounding good on hi-res but flat on 16/44. The DS-10 with Evo PSU is much more consistent. It produces an open and friendly sound with excellent imaging. The sound lacks the dynamics and grandeur of that from my much more expensive vinyl front-end, but thatís the case with every digital device Iíve used. Overall, for casual listening and exploring new material, itís very good value, well made and easy to use. One issue Iíve had is that I have limited bandwidth and the DS-10 doesnít cache the stream if you pause it so I sometimes have problems playing 24/192 streams, which is frustrating.
