KD-2000 Tube DSD DAC The KD-2000 Tube DSD D/A converter is specially designed for those who like to play their music digitally without sacrificing sound quality. Utilizing the very finest technologies and uncompromising design, the KD-2000 is capable in offering the widest DSD and PCM support with highest sampling rate.
The following is a quote statement from the full reveiw by Terry London, February 11, 2015:
"Canary Audio's first attempt at an all-format tube-based DAC has turned out to be a great success. It offers great build quality, a robust power supply, and a tube-based analog conversion section that gets you the speed/transparency/details of digital sound while blending in the tonality/colors/image palpability of what tubes and analog have to offer. As far as I can tell, the KD-2000 does equal justice to Redbook CDs and high-resolution/DSD material, so it can play any music you have in your collection."
