Cary Audio is not known for change for the sake of change alone. The new DMS-700 represents a significant step forward in network and internet music streaming sound reproduction, while further solidifying the Cary Audio DMS platform and range of products as one of the absolute best there is for network audio.
The DMS-700 uses AKM’s latest flagship DAC, the AK4499EQ. Instead of voltage output Delta-Sigma architecture, these 4499 DACs are R2R (resistor to resistor) Ladder DACs with current output. The new DAC is accompanied by an FPGA chip to make sure no crossover distortion is present for an extremely coherent and smooth sound. Few companies use FPGA DACs and even fewer use R2R Ladder DACs. Almost no one uses both, the Cary says. Of course, the digital circuitry alone does not account for the overall sound. As a matter of fact, 1/3rd of the entire DMS-700’s internals are dedicated to the analog stage, 1/3rd to digital circuity, and 1/3rd to power supply, all shielded and separated.
Aside from sound, the DMS-700 is packed with new and improved features like a LCD screen with twice the resolution of previous DMS models, at 1600x1200dpi, Crytek Oscillator Clock, 7 independent regulated power supplies, USB/SD Card inputs with built-in NAS Drive capability, Spotify Connect, and Coaxial and Optical DSD and PCM 384kHz or higher capability. The new device allows shuffling back and forth from all network, internet, USB & SD input sources without stopping playback of current track/source. The DMS-700 also has a Pure Audio mode and Sleep timer.
