Aune S8 Reference DAC

Low-Phase-Noise
True Synhronization Focused

Innovation to Change Everything

The S8 is a DAC full of innovation. From power management to tuning, years of audio design experience enable us to achieve the ideal result as we expected. What´s more , the addition oft he Low-Phase-Noise PLL designed by Titans Audio Lab takes the S8 to an even higher level.


More Than ES9038PRO

The S8 adopts the successful and time-tested ES9038PRO which is based on HyperStream 2. Compared tot he last generation ES9018S, it has huge improvements. The more flexible configurations enable the manufacturers that have technologies achieve better results via optimization of combination of interior and exterior, and the Aune S8 is one of such designs. The accumulation of technology leads to he high performance oft he S8.


Just in Time ASRC

Thanks to the digital processing technology from Titans Audio Lab, the S8 can completely discard the ASRC inside the DAC chip and presentmusic more vividly. Authentic femtosecond clock reproduction: the S8 adopted the testing standard AABT /Aune Audio Band Test) that exceeds AES-12id-2006 (r2017). nStict standard bring s natural and musical sound.


 Authentic Femtosecond Oscillator Makes

USB has basically been a minor role for tradional DACs. The S8 specifically enhanched the USB design: adopted the solution oft he combination of XMOS and FPGA, in which XMOS does USB data analysis and FPGA does audio data synthesis. Moreover, the customized Thesycon driver enables the S8 to support music files up to 32bit 768k and DSD512. Plus the two high-performance authentic femtosecond clocks, this time, USB has become a reason why you want to buy a DAC, too.


Measurement Reveal the Truth

J-Test is one oft he acknowledged standards to test a DAC. The measurement oft he S8´s jitter of 44.1k shows the prowess of technical ability.


Professional Tuning With 15 Years Expirience

All efforts are made fort he sound. In the whole R&D of the S8, the hardware development only occupies 30% oft he time. Most time has spent on tuning and fine adjustment of all kinds of details. Over the 15 years, we have released lots of classic and well-recieved products. From the experiences, we know what sound the customers want. When the S8 starts, you will know, that is exactly what you want.
