New Year, New Look: Meet Lina Silver. The dCS Lina Network DAC, Master Clock and Headphone Amplifier are now available in dCS’s signature shade of silver, bringing listeners more choice and a striking new finish.

The dCS Lina Master Clock provides a master reference signal that synchronises playback components for enhanced audio performance.


The Lina Master Clock is informed by dCS' extensive experience of developing master clocks for professional and home use. Their research has shown us that adding a dedicated master clock to an audio system can enhance all aspects of sound, from detail and imaging to rhythmic movement and flow.

The Lina Master Clock utilises dual crystal oscillators and proprietary dCS clocking technologies to deliver a precise and stable clocking reference for all audio formats and frequencies. Paired with the dCS Lina Network DAC, Bartók DAC or Bartók Headphone DAC, it provides an even more immersive and engaging experience.
