I’ve been at Danish Audio Design International a few times and have listened to their PRE and DAC. It is an experience and it does not get better in this world. I have heard the best equipment, but this beats everything. Mr. Jakobsen have had my DAC 10 in for an upgrade and it was a fantastic experience to get it back and listen to it – it’s crazy what the man can fix and enhance regarding DAC’s.I’ve just been up at the company again and I ended up with a DAC 15 that I brought home. It is the best I have heard to date regardless of price, but don’t listen to their large sets, it’s simply crazy good, but a DAC 15 is worth 20 times what you pay for it.

I just bought a DAC 15 Silver and PRE 15 Silver and it beats everything else I’ve heard. The sound is incredible, no hiss or distortions, just pure audio joy.
If it wasn’t because I couldn’t handle the size of THE GRAIL I would also have bought them immediately. They are out of this world!

I have had the honor to visit the home of Danish Audio Design International a few times and have to say I’ve never heard anything that plays as amazing as their products. You do not want to turn on your own setup when you come home. The next thing I have to spend money on is a set PRE and DAC from Danish Audio Design International.

Hi Folks … I simply have to share the most amazing experience I had yesterday … – along with my brother, we went to the city of Give to listen to a set of Lithuanian speakers – which unfortunately was not the absolutely great experience. On the other hand, the products was, from Danish Audio Design International – at Jan & Bitten – in Odder. I think I’ve heard relatively much stuff in my time – but that experience is going to be more than ordinary hard to match.
In addition to Jan & Bitten being some of the most hospitable people I have met, there were also a few fiery souls beyond the “usual” … – they are manufacturing exclusively with Danish materials and subcontractors – powerless and uncompromising DAC’s – amplifiers and speakers.
We listened to a set of “The Truth” – a small case of about 165 kg … per piece … – I can’t remember hearing better … – until Jan introduced us to “The Future” – and not least played the tune with the helicopter from “The Wall” … – closed your eyes, it flew around the room in front of us … – now it is also a case of 8 pcs 11 “basses – 12 mid-tones and 24 trebles – in each side. Weighing just over 250 kg per piece and projecting 2.35 meters into the sky – which the sound did too.
He played the last minute of the 1812 overtime with guns … – I’ve never heard anything like it. The basses goes between 3-4 cm at each bang – it was totally magical … in addition, the Hotel California from Hell Frezees Over …
Jan told me that he had a good friend visiting – who had a pacemaker – the good man flopped down on the couch, when the sound pressure from the basses went straight into the pacemaker – fortunately he survived – but what a dynamic – in addition to a brilliant soundscape, with a richness of details, that I have not experienced before.
You should ask Jan for a visit to listen!
Bring the “big wallet” with You … – it’s totally good stuff! The power amplifiers – a minimum – weight well over 100 kg. – the next “The One” small 275 kg per piece – these are mono amplifiers. The last one is The Only One … with a fighting weight of about 375 kg. wrapped in 5-7 cm thick aluminum … – and none of them got hot at all, despite a considerable sound pressure of about 125 dB.
I still get chills …
We are really music lovers – and installations are not crucial in that context … – but when sound is delivered at this level, all music just gets a little better …
May the music be with you – Listen & enjoy 🙂
