OPPO Sonica DAC

High performance audio

Top of the line digital to analog performance

With more and more music coming from digital sources, the DAC is one of the most important components for digital audio playback. OPPO Sonica DAC is equipped with an ES9038PRO 32-bit HyperStream DAC chip at its core.

Clean power for clear music

Sonica DAC's audio circuitry is supplied with a linear power regulator drawing from a massive toroidal power transformer. A transformer offers superior power efficiency and much lower exterior magnetic fields over traditional laminated steel core transformers. The toroidal linear power supply provides a very clean and robust power source to the audio components. 

Fully balanced design for the best signal quality

Sonica DAC's audio output path is fully balanced from the DAC chip all the way to the XLR jacks. Even the RCA output signal is converted from the balanced output. The balanced design provides better common-mode noise rejection and improves signal quality. It also provides better channel separation by eliminating the common ground return path.

MUSIC WITHOUT LIMITS

  • Play and stream high resolution music 
  • Asynchronous USB DAC for computer audio
  • Easy integration with the Sonica Multi-Room speaker system
  • Apple Airplay and Bluetooth

Convenient Control & Connection

Control via Sonica App

Use the free Sonica app on your smartphone or tablet to stream and control your music. The same Sonica app also controls the Sonica Wi-Fi speakers that you may have. 

Easy connection with source components and amplifiers

Sonica DAC provides both XLR balanced and RCA single-ended outputs, and the outputs can be to set to volume-controlled or bypass, making it suitable for connecting to either pre-amps or power amplifier. In addition to the USB DAC input and network streaming, Sonica DAC also offers coaxial and optical digital inputs for additional digital audio sources. 

Classic design and contemporary OLED display

Sonica DAC sports a classic aluminium chassis with the familiar volume source selection knobs. A 2.8 inch OLED display complements the brushed metal front panel, offering read out of the current volume and detailed information about the audio signal.
