OPPO Sonica DAC

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. The flagship of the ESS SABRE PRO series, ES9038PRO sets a new benchmark for audio excellence.

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 toroidal power 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.

Play and Stream High Resolution Music

Play music files of many formats from USB drives attached to the Sonica DAC, or from home network computers and servers connected via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. Stream music from your smartphone and tablet via Wi-Fi using the Sonica app. The Sonica DAC is a high resolution audio player and decoder capable of decoding audio files up to 24-bit / 192 kHz from formats such as FLAC, WAV and Apple Lossless, as well as DSD files at 64x sample rate. (A smartphone or tablet running Android or iOS is required.)

Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth

Sonica DAC supports Apple AirPlay, which lets you wirelessly stream your music from iTunes, an iOS device, or an OS X computer to Sonica through your Wi-Fi network. Bluetooth is another convenient way to connect your mobile device or laptop computer to Sonica DAC and play music. Sonica DAC makes it simple to pair with Bluetooth-enabled devices to get the music flowing.

Asynchronous USB DAC for Computer Audio

By bypassing the low fidelity, poor quality DAC of traditional computer soundcards, the Sonica DAC turns any computer into a high performance multi-media source by converting digital audio to analog through the ES9038PRO chip. The asynchronous transfer mode uses the high precision clock inside the Sonica DAC to drive the audio signal, not relying on the clock quality of the computer. The USB DAC input supports PCM up to 768 kHz 32-bit and DSD up to 22.5792 MHz (DSD512).

Easy Integration with the Sonica Multi-Room Speaker System

Sonica DAC brings high-resolution audio playback, network streaming, and mobile device connection to your existing home audio system. As a member of the OPPO Sonica product family, the AUX input of Sonica DAC enables you to connect existing analog audio source to the Sonica multi-room network. Add some Sonica Wi-Fi speakers and enjoy your favorite tunes anywhere in the house.

Control via Sonica App

Use the free Sonica app on your smartphone or tablet to stream and control your music. Invite friends to join the party by running the app on their phones too. The same Sonica app also controls Sonica Wi-Fi speakers that you may have. With the Sonica app, you are in the conductor’s seat.

Easy Connection with Source Components and Amplifiers

Sonica DAC provides both XLR balanced and RCA single-ended outputs, and the outputs can be set to volume-controlled or bypass, making it suitable for connecting to either pre-amps or power amplifiers. 12V trigger input and output make it possible to turn on and off the entire audio system with one click. 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 with Contemporary OLED Display

Sonica DAC sports a classic aluminum chassis with the familiar volume and 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.

High Performance Audio and Versatility: Sonica DAC combines the sound quality of a traditional audiophile DAC with the convenience and versatility of a high resolution network player. Regardless of whether you are streaming from your computer, NAS drive or connected via USB, Sonica DAC ensures you will hear the best performance from your music.

Music Without Limits: Sonica DAC allows you to access your favourite music in many different ways. It can be used as a traditional DAC to improve the audio performance from your computer via USB, as a high resolution media player decoding audio from connected USB storage devices, or even as a network streamer playing content from DLNA servers and via AirPlay and Bluetooth.

Convenient Control and Connectivity: Sonica DAC is controlled via a dedicated app for smartphones and tablets, allowing you to easily find and access content from DLNA servers, connected USB drives, and streaming services such as Tidal and Spotify.

Top of the Line Digital to Analogue Performance: Sonica DAC utilizes the flagship ESS Sabre ES9038PRO 32-Bit DAC chipset which sets a new benchmark in the industry. It uses the patented HyperStream technology with -122dB total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N), and a dynamic range up to 140db.

Clean Power for Clear Music: Sonica DAC's audio circuitry is powered by a massive toroidal power transformer, which offers superior efficiency and significantly lower exterior magnetic field interference compared to traditional laminated steel core transformer.

Fully Balanced Design: Sonica DAC's audio output path is fully balanced from the DAC chip all the way to the XLR outputs, and even the RCA output signal is converted from the balanced output. The balanced design provides better common-mode noise rejection, improves signal quality, and results in better channel separation by eliminating the common ground return path.

Asynchronous USB DAC: Sonica DAC turns any computer into a high performance audio source by bypassing the typically low fidelity, poor quality DACs found in traditional computer soundcards. The asynchronous transfer mode uses the high precision clock inside the Sonica DAC rather than relying on the computer's clock. The USB DAC input supports PCM up to 768 kHz 32-bit and up to DSD512.
