GeerFab Audio D.BOB Overview

Designed for audiophiles and cinephiles, the GeerFab Audio D.BOB is a digital breakout box that extracts the high-resolution audio from SACDs, Blu-ray, and DVD-based disks. The converter provides remarkable improvements in clarity, dynamics, focus, presence, definition, sound-staging, and more. A universal player with an HDMI output is required. Its HDMI pass-through allows for player menu settings and other video uses.

The D.BOB extracts DSD64 via the DoP (DSD over PCM) protocol and hi-res PCM up to 24-bit / 192 kHz through the S/PDIF coaxial and TOSLINK optical outputs to your (separately available) external DAC. The D.BOB is fully HDCP and copy-protection compliant. The unit includes a mini-USB port for firmware updates and ships with a IEC power cord.

Note:
Disc-Player Compatibility Note: The D.BOB only works with universal disc players with an HDMI output and only accepts HDMI signals. DAC Compatibility Note: The D.BOB works with most DACs. For DSD, the DAC must accept DoP via S/PDIF coaxial or TOSLINK.

GeerFab Audio D.BOB Reviews

Plug and play external DAC SACD decoding

By Evan

This works and enables streaming SACD to an external DAC via HDMI. It is plug and play between my Oppo 105 and Holo Audio May DAC. Highly recommended.

Love the D.BOB!  Works great!

Excellent piece of audio gear. The D.BOB works just as stated by the manufacturer. It's awesome listening to my SACD's via my SONY UBP-X1100ES HDR 4K UHD Blu-Ray player and my external SMSL-SU8 DAC! Setup was a breeze. Great job GeerFab!
