Inspired by Dedication to Unrivaled, Superior Sound Quality

dCS brings over 30 years of experience developing master clocks for professional and home use, and the jury is out: listeners and audio experts agree they've achieved significant sonic benefits after adding a dCS master clock to their system.

Designed for use with the Lina Network DAC, it uses two crystal oscillators to deliver a precise and stable clocking reference for all audio formats and frequencies. When paired with the Lina DAC, it allows the DAC’s internal clock system to be locked to a master signal for even greater precision and enhanced audio performance.

Reliably Accurate, Unquestionably Precise

Its standalone design ensures sensitive clocking components are protected from factors that can cause interference. Each crystal oscillator is also oven-controlled to ensure its performance remains consistent, even under changing conditions and temperatures.

Designed for maximum reliability and longevity, it is a silent but powerful component engineered to operate with absolute precision and consistency, so you can experience the best possible performance from your system. Combined with the Lina Network DAC and Headphone Amplifier, it delivers an even more profound and immersive listening experience, and helps ensure the audio you hear sounds exactly as it should.
