You took the time to convert your audio over to ultra-high-quality DSD. Now it's time to get it out of the box and into your speakers or headphones. The Korg DS-DAC 100 is a great way to do that. It works over a USB connection in conjunction with AudioGate 3 software to provide realtime DSD conversion, outputting the pristine audio via RCA or XLR outputs or straight into your headphones. Despite its processing chops, its design couldn't be more elegant, with a retro curved body, a clean front panel sporting only a volume knob, LED indicators, and a headphone jack, and metal spiked feet that double as vibration impediments.
There are great looking and sounding tower speakers, and then there's the Beam Speakers from Fern & Roby. These amazing bookends for your audiophile setup aren't just made from real wood like so many other floorstanding speakers, the cabinet itself is solid wood — heart pine to be specific — reclaimed from a 19th century Virginia factory. And they aren't just all show, as the pair delivers the dynamics you'd expect from a full range system, with the imaging and accuracy you'd only find in a mini monitor. A true case of design and sound complimenting each other.
The DDJ-SX was already cool enough, designed for use with beloved software Serato DJ. The Pioneer DDJ-SX Gold Edition DJ Controller adds a touch of bling to the proceedings with a limited production vintage gold color scheme. Features include dual decks, access to multiple effect modes, an independent 4-channel mixer, large jog wheels, eight performance pads, a host of inputs and outputs, and a high-performance DAC for outstanding audio quality.
