Métronome Le DAC
Le DAC by Métronome is the entry-level converter of the brand since December 2018. Made under the classic design of Métronome, it will comply with the needs of purists in search of a "high-end" sound reproduction with affordable price. Le DAC embeds a AK4493 conversion chip allowing decoding of PCM files up to 384 kHz and DSD up to 512 (DSD x8).
Métronome remains loyal for years to the Japanese manufacturer Asahi Kasei for their conversion chips, renown for their great musical properties.
This choice combined to fine and proprietary electronics results in a high sound reproduction.
With its classic dimensions, Le DAC is available in black and silver finishes.
