Lina is a brand new product series from dCS: a formidable collection of audio separates that can be enjoyed individually or as a complete music playback system, in a headfi or two-channel audio setup. It offers exceptional musicality, transparency and flexibility, and caters to virtually any setup and space.

The Lina Network DAC plays high-resolution audio direct from any digital source and reproduces recordings with absolute precision and astonishing realism.

The Lina Master Clock provides a master reference signal that synchronises playback components and further enhances performance, while the solid state Headphone Amplifier drives even the most demanding headphones to their full potential.

Together, these components provide a profound listening experience that reveals the subtlest of musical details, and the true depth and essence of a recording.

Lina’s modular format allows you to select the components that best suit your needs, building a system that suits your environment – be it a dedicated media room, professional studio, office or living space – and your desired mode of listening.

Ingenious engineering and cutting-edge features – such as a pioneering flex-rigid circuit board in the Lina Network DAC – allow us to achieve an outstanding level of performance in a compact footprint, making it the perfect system for more intimate listening spaces, as well as larger settings.

Each Lina component is engineered to exacting standards, with the same tight tolerances and meticulous attention to detail as our renowned Rossini, Vivaldi and Bartók series. It is a system that is built to last, and one that will continue to delight and inspire you for years to come.
