Audio Alchemy Versatile, No-Compromise, Roon Ready Digital Music Access. Made in U.S.A.
Now at True Audiophile
The world is filled with phono stages. Many promise. Few deliver. Audio Alchemy followed up on their other products with the same rabid audio intensity to develop a phono stage that - well as one audiophile in Japan claims "nothing under $20,000 can touch it. -- TA
The DMP-1 provides an easy, no-compromise way to access audiophile-grade digital music files. It will seek out all of the high-quality music files stored on your network, whether they’re on a NAS drive, a networked computer, or USB sticks or drives. It’ll present your music on a convenient graphic interface that can appear on a smartphone, tablet or computer, or even on a TV set or projector. It’ll send any music you choose through a jitter-free I2S interface to the Audio Alchemy DDP-1 digital preamp/DAC, or to other DACs or digital preamps through its AES/EBU and coax digital outputs.
The DMP-1 is Roon-ready, providing Roon subscribers with instant access to the world's best music search and organization service.
We added Roon capability to the DMP-1 because we believe it's the most engaging, enjoyable way to browse your music.
Being Roon Ready means that the DMP-1 transparently discovers and connects to Roon, with no network configuration and with bit-perfect delivery of audio to your DAC or digital preamp.
With the addition of Roon, the DMP-1 delivers the power, flexibility, and performance benefits of networked audio, with the easiest setup and highest reliability available.

Conjure Music from Almost Any Device
You can browse your digital music collection using MPaD apps, which are available for iOS and Android phones and tablets, or through Roon by using a phone, tablet or computer. The DMP-1 has its own internal web server with WiFi capability, so you can call up its web page from any device with a web browser to browse your music and perform setup functions. If it can run a web browser, it can control the DMP-1.
Lots of audio devices offer USB connections, but usually just one. We included four USB inputs on the DMP-1, so you can connect a couple of USB drives and still have room for a couple of USB sticks, too. Through either the DMP-1’s web interface or through MPaD, you can easily browse through all the content on all the USB devices -- right along with all the content on your networked devices, too.
Fear No Format
We built the DMP-1 as a true high-end audio server, so it handles the high-resolution audio files audiophiles prefer. It supports WAV, FLAC and AIFF files in resolutions up to 24-bit/192-kilohertz, as well as DSD files.
When you use the DMP-1 with the DDP-1, you can use the I2S interface, which provides jitter-free transfer of digital music data. The DMP-1 also includes USB, AES/EBU and coaxial digital outputs, so it can be used with other digital preamps and DACs, too.
An Almost Magical Upgrade
The DMP-1 includes an external DC power supply, and it can also work with the Audio Alchemy PS-5 upgrade power supply, which has outputs to power multiple Audio Alchemy components. The PS-5 maintains separate feeds for analog and digital/control circuits, with separate positive and negative rails for analog circuits, well as large banks of storage capacitors to provide smooth, essentially ripple-free power to all connected components.
The DMP-1 makes accessing your audiophile-grade digital music files as easy as plucking music files off a smartphone. It’s all your digital music, conveniently organized, easily accessed and delivered with uncompromised fidelity.
