May 10, 2018, High End, Munich – Cayin, renowned audio manufacturer from China, is proud to announce their top of the line Digital to Analogue Converter/Preamp, CS-100DAC at High End 2018 (H12, Hall).


The CS-100DAC is a reference grade digital source in Cayin’s lineup. It features two ESS ES9038Pro DAC chipset and can native decode up to DSD512 and 32 Bit/ 768kHz.  User can select from 7 PCM digital filters and 4 DSD digital filters to fine tune the sound signature for different music genre or even specific music files.  


CS-100DAC comes with six digital inputs including an I2S port with HDMI connector. User can connect the CS-100DAC to compatible I2S ready digital transport such as Cayin iDAP-6 with a standard HDMI cable. Cayin has also incorporated a genuine audiophile grade pre-amp into CS-100DAC, user can create a simple sound system by connect the pre-amp output of CS-100DAC to active speakers or power amplifiers such as Cayin 9084DMK2 directly.


Bin Liang, CEO of Zhuhai Spark Electronic Equipment Co., Ltd., parent company of Cayin, said “While the digital capability of CS-100DAC is remarkable, the analogue section is also a state-of-the-art implementation. On top of the regular high quality solid state output, Cayin has incorporated a set of four 6922 triode vacuum tubes into the signal path, this will allow user to switch between Solid State and Vacuum Tube output with a single button push.  This timbre function is available to both single-ended and balanced connection, and is applicable to line output and preamp output of CS-100DAC.  The 6922 is an extensive triode tube family with lot of low-cost high quality choice, user can fine tune the sound signature according to their preference or system synergy”.


To deliver a natural and musical playback, we have installed two extremely low-noise high-precision Crystal Oscillators into CS-100DAC. With RMS phase jitter as low as 0.075ps (0.000 000 000 000 075 second), these are the lowest jitter solution Cayin has implemented so far.


With a 3.95” full color AMOLED display, the input, output and operation status of the CS-100DAC is clearly visible.  An IR remote control is supplied as standard, allowing user to select source, adjust volume and change timbre and digital filters at a distance.
