After the huge success of the DSS, Métronome announces its second generation, logically called DSS 2. A streamer and network player, the DSS 2 has now the Wi-Fi connection inside and manages DSD up to 256.
DSS was the first streaming transport from Métronome, logically positioned in the Digital Sharing product range. The DSS 2 retains the small housing of the DSS (25x25x7cm/9.8×9.8×2.8 in), making it easy to integrate in any setup. Fresh touches are a new grey colour on the key and picto of the front panel. The new model adds essential features: the Wi-Fi is now integrated, and the Métronome DSS 2 plays native DSD files up to x4 (DSD256).
Even though 100% of the electronics and software are new, DSS 2 keeps the perfection and stability of its plug-and-play function capacity. Additionally, it is MQA compatible. DSS 2 is UPnP as well as DLNA certified, usable with all player Apps under those protocols; the advised App being mConnect Control. It is also Roon Ready, Audirvāna compatible and Airplay 1 and Airplay 2 certified.
Jean Marie Clauzel, Owner and Designer of Métronome, said :“For DSS 2, it was essential to maintain all the technical and audiophile qualities of the first generation, and to improve its resolution as a streamer. With the capacity to go up to DSD256, I’m sure the goals are achieved!”
