Silverstone Desktop Amp & DAC At CeBIT 2014
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Here we are once again at the Silverstone booth at CeBIT 2014 and while we’ve already had great fun checking out their new chassis products for 2014, I can’t help but be even more excited about their audio products. Silverstone are well known in the industry for their attention to detail and premium grade engineering, a mindset that works well when designing high-end audio equipment.
Below we have the RAV01 and the RAV02 audio products, both of which are part of Silverstone’s premium grade gaming series “Raven”. The devices booth look simple enough, black boxes with a pair of audio jacks on the front. The RAV01 is external and compact, while the RAV02 is a little larger to allow mounting in a 5.25″ drive bay slot on your chassis. Both of them are designed to filter and improve the quality of your sound while gaming, perfect for blocking background noise and giving your headset an extra kick.
The really awesome stuff comes in the form of the new desktop amp and DAC (Digital Audio Converter). These two sleek looking devices are made from beautifully finished brushed aluminium and while they can be run separately you can hook the pair together to really reap the benefits of high-end headsets and headphones on your desktop. Improved signal quality and power delivery really makes a big difference and I’ll be taking a closer look at these products in the coming weeks for an in-depth review.
There is still more great things to see at the Silverstone booth as well as from the rest of the show here at CeBIT 2014, so well be back very soon with even more coverage from the show floor.
