2020 DSD Albums of the Year

Good sounding music starts with excellent quality DSD & DXD files.

What we do

NativeDSD provides listeners a top quality resource for DSD Stereo, DSD Binaural (for headphone listeners) & DSD Multichannel music directly from Native DSD,  Native DXD, Native Very High Bit Rate PCM (24 bit, 384kHz) and Analog Master Tapes transferred to DSD in Stereo, Multichannel and Binaural.

Where it comes from

The music we offer comes directly from the musicians and recording artists recording in DSD, DXD, Very High Bit Rate PCM (24 bit, 384kHz) and Analog Tape to DSD Transfers. NativeDSD will never sell upsampled PCM at bit rates below DXD (24 bit, 352.8 kHz PCM) and Very High Bit Rate PCM (24 bit, 384kHz). That’s how we make sure that you get as close to the actual performance as possible.

How we present it

You can choose to download as Stereo (and when available in Multichannel and Binaural) DSD 256, DSD 128, DSD 64, and DXD and in a growing number in the popular Stereo DSD 512 bit rate.

NativeDSD also offers Stereo, Binaural and Multichannel FLAC files. These are created from the DSD and DXD editions of these albums using the unique “Zephiir” conversion process created by Bit Perfect which produces exceptionally high quality FLAC files.

The Sonore microRendu is an audiophile microcomputer with Ethernet input and USB Audio output.

Sonore microRendu v1.5

The Sonore microRendu is an audiophile microcomputer with Ethernet input and USB Audio output. The microRendu utilizes a proprietary printed circuit board with only the essential components. The microRendu is small and lightweight. Connect the microRendu directly to your USB device via a USB cable or hard adapter eliminating the need for a USB cable. Don’t let the size fool you though because it’s been designed to take into consideration all that is important to USB Audio. The microRendu is easy to configure and can accept audio streams from several digital sources.

The original Sonore microRendu v1.3 was discontinued in March 2020 because certain parts on the unit were becoming hard to get. Soon afterward Sonore decided to redesign the unit improving some components and upgrading others. Another key goal of the project was to reduce the price without compromise to the performance. With a little bit of hard work Sonore was able to achieve all the project goals and we think you will be thrilled with the new Sonore microRendu v1.5.
