Greetings all friends here,

We are the Douk Audio Team, one audio company in China. We are so excited and happy to be here, not only to share our new item P1PLUS with you, but also to collect all your feedback and suggestions on our products in the future.
Some of you may have heard of us before since some audio products designed by us that were reviewed by Amir in ASR. We have read them carefully, deeply know that we still have many shortcomings, and we are also very grateful to the audiosciencereview forum for allowing us to discover and improve them.
In the past, our product development department has been obsessed with designing products based on their own judgment, ignoring the actual needs and user experience of the users. In 2024, we are going to launch many new audio products, and we sincerely want to invite all members here to give us some feedback and advice to shape new items together. Thank you all!

Just Wow! :oops:

But I need to say, bravo for the analogue input and the optical output.

I have absolutely no use for it but I think it looks pretty cool. Put the knobs on the front and take my money....

Welcome to ASR, don't be alarmed when a moderator comes along and informs you, as a dealer/manufacturer, you post will be moved to a different part of the forum. Rest assured your presence is welcome here though!

Looking forward to the measurements

Well, the cosmetics are refreshingly strange different amazing! :)
Welcome to @Douk Audio!
I feel that I may have many, many questions -- not just about this product.
E.g., maybe this one. :)


or was it this one?


or... maybe... something else. ;)

But, but...
Tubes R cool!
Well, OK, most of them will be, at least, warm -- and some quite toasty.
But in a colloquial way, they're cool. ;) :cool::D


Two warm, and three quite toasty indeed, examples of cool firebottles ensconsed in a stereo SE 2A3 amplifier that -- umm -- shares quarters with us.

And the look (of the titular Douk product, that is)?
The look is amazingly strange -- crazy wasn't one of the choices! ;)

What an interesting curio. It's kinda hideous but at the same time draws you in if for no other reason than curiosity. Not something I'd buy personally though.

Oh, a legitimate question for @Douk Audio.
Can you help us with the pronunciation - for, say, English speakers - of Douk?

Is it analogous to the English word duke, for example? Or perhaps it rhymes with the English word soak?

We used to have a couple of housecats like that. ;)

Depends how you pronounce duke I suppose. I hear Americans pronounce it "dook" whereas I would pronounce it "juke".

Good point. I was definitely thinking dook -- apparently suppressing my deep Anglophile roots. :facepalm:

Hi JSmith, thank you for your kindess!
We know that ASR values the measurements, we cannot say that our tube equipment can have the same very good parameters as digital equipment, but we will definitely try our best to adjust it to the best. The parameters are currently still in the debugging stage and the final results are being confirmed. When the samples come out, we will send it to Amir for testing, so let’s look forward to it together! :)
Hi Douk Audio, a warm welcome to ASR. :)

An interesting product you have shown above. I can't help but feel being a tube based device that this may not resonate with ASR members.

Are you able to share more info, measurements etc.?

Hello Tom, thank you for your advice, that's why we come here!
Judging from the feedback collected, many customers also like tube equipment. We will definitely strengthen product design, collect more opinions, and strive to let more people can buy their favorite products at Douk Audio! :)
I have to agree. I like Douk products and have several in my home, but please lose the tubes. Or at least make it so I can switch the tubes out of the circuit.
