The first Audirvana V1 Interface (2011)


Damien Plisson

“I never imagined Audirvana would grow to such a size. It all started with a big box of 56 Aldo Cicciolini CDs that I had ripped and wanted to play on my computer. 

There was a debate at the time about the audio quality offered by the first audiophile playback solutions. So I decided to develop a demonstrator myself to check the quality gain that could be achieved by bypassing the software layers to transmit audio data packets directly to the DAC. 

I was impressed with the audio result I heard, and I shared the demonstrator online. It was downloaded over 60,000 times! The feedback from the community was extremely positive. So, I continued the developments to get to the end of the process and started selling it in 2011. In 2012, we received the Computer Audiophile Magazine Readers’ Choice Award.

After a few years, I realized that this could become my full time job. I could combine my passion for music with a product universe that I had total control over. No concessions to be made. I can do things the way I think they should be done, solve problems one by one. Over the years, I have approached each new subject, each format, with the same exigency, using all the possibilities offered by machines and programming environments. Today Audirvana is the fruit of all this work.”
