The DSDAC 1.0 DELUXE is a DAC based on DSD technology. It is different from most DACs on the market. Indeed, the DSDAC 1.0 DELUXE can increase the frequency of any digital input signal, including PCM and DSD64, up to DSD1024. If the signal is equivalent or higher at DSD128 you can also choose not to increase the frequency of the signal.
The DSDAC 1.0 DELUXE does not integrate a conventional DAC chip but an optimized FPGA for an efficient reclocking system and discrete components for digital processing.
It has 3 advanced audio technologies:
- High-precision DSD frequency algorithm
- Direct synchronous clock
- Clock blocking technology
The DELUXE model compared to the standard model has an optimized clock system and major modifications have been made to the circuit.
The Deluxe model can also be used as a preamp. It can provide a maximum gain of 5dB for the input signal. In preamp mode, the DAC function is inactive.
Synchronous direct clock technology
The DSDAC 1.0 DELUXE is equipped with an integrated femtosecond clock. Its signal is sent directly, without intermediate conversion and without going through the frequency divider, to the shift register. This allows the performance of the femtosecond clock to reflect directly on the analog outputs of the DAC.
Clock blocking technology
The DSDAC 1.0 DELUXE is able to block the clock signal of devices transmitting a sound signal upstream, your CD player for example, so the DAC only uses its internal clock. This technology solves the clock problem often seen in digital audio.
XMOS XU208 custom USB interface
The USB interface is capable of receiving native DSD signals. The SPDIF inputs can receive DSD64 in DoP mode.
