The latest firmware (FW) v.130 includes:

– Addition of Chameleon functionalities. For the first time ever the Chameleon functions allow adjusting the sonic profile of the DS-10: the selection of three different profiles lets the listener change the sound character of the DAC: the PCM Equalisation curve (Low Pass filter), high-frequency De-emphasis and internal Power of the DAC. This enables adapting the DAC to one’s personal musical taste without changing the originally recorded audio signal.

– Correction of some minor bugs.


Before updating the unit please verify your DS-10 actually needs it. With the AC Power Cord removed, push and hold the front panel SKC rotary switch knob, then connect the AC Power Cord to turn the unit ON. The display will show the installed firmware version. If it’s not the v.130 or the display does not show anything the unit should be updated.

After the registration you will be able to download the firmware update package and PDF guide in a single compressed file which needs to be extracted.

Please verify the mini-USB cable necessary to connect the DS-10 to the computer works properly before starting the update.

Do not reset the DS-10 if the computer does not show the unit visible once connected otherwise the DS-10 memory will be completely erased till a necessary factory re-booting.
