S.O.t.M. to debut DSD-capable DAC/pre-amplifier at CES 2013


S.O.t.M. = Soul Of the Music.

I won’t be in Las Vegas next week but South Korea’s S.O.t.M. is set to demonstrate a brand new combination DAC and pre-amplifier at this year’s CES. The sDP-1000 DAC/Pre-amp supports up to 32bit/192khz PCM as well as the (supposed) next hot thing: native DSD. It’s a fully balanced design which – more arrestingly – is battery powered (with automatic re-charging).


Other features include:

  • Automatic battery charger
  • Proprietary S.O.t.M. USB connectivity- USB 2.0 high speed- USB audio class 2.0- Asynchronous isochronous mode operation
  • Balanced and single ended analogue inputs
  • AES/EBU, BNC, Coaxial, Optical digital inputs

The sMS-1000 media server will be used as a source in the active display at The Venetian, Luxury Suite 30-220.

No word yet on pricing.
