North Star Design

Italy's North Star Design was showing dizzying array of DACs including the Intenso (€1000), Impulso (€1450), Incanto (€1800), Excelsio (€2100), and the Supremo (€3000 pictured above). All of the North Star DACs employ ESS Sabre chips and support 32/384 and DSD. As you move up the line, you go from the ES9016 to the ES9018 found in the Excelsio and Supremo.
