Aesthetix Saturn Signature Series: Romulus Signature VC - Black

Aesthetix Saturn Signature Series: Romulus Signature VC - Black

ROMULUS Signature Aesthetix Romulus and Pandora are now available in a Signature version. Existing Romulus and Pandora units are factory upgradable to Signature. True Native DSD Romulus and Pandora Signature offer true native DSD 1x and 2x functionality over USB and 1x DSD over SPDIF (AES/EBU, RCA Coax and TosLink). The entire DSP processing section is replaced (pictured above, click to enlarge). The new section includes an advanced Xilinx gate-array which allows the DSP to be completely bypassed for pure DSD 1x and 2x operation. No alteration of DSD data occurs. Many DACs in the market that claim to play DSD actually convert the data to PCM and thereby completely lose the purpose of DSD operation.

Gryphon Audio Kalliope DAC

Gryphon Audio Kalliope DAC

Three Reasons Why Bits Are Not Just Bits The well-worn phrase “Bits is bits” encapsulates the widespread misconception that any reasonably constructed digital system will result in “Pure, Perfect Sound Forever,” in the lamentable promotional slogan coined by the inventors of the compact disc. 1.) Digital audio is not a simple one-dimensional row of numbers, where all that is required is to keep the correct numbers in the correct order. In fact, it is a data stream of numbers flowing through time. And the right number at the wrong time is (almost) as bad as the wrong number. Gryphon Kalliope ensures effective correction/prevention of timing errors (jitter) using sophisticated circuit topology and exclusive, custom-built components. 2.) Following digital to analogue conversion, an analogue filter is required to remove high frequency noise. The deleterious side effects of a typical steep-slope “brickwall” filter include temporal smearing, energy loss, compromised resolution and reduced transparency. Gryphon Kalliope employs advanced technologies and an innovative, minimalist single-component filter with no adverse audible impact. 3.) Advocates of the “bits is bits” attitude tend to ignore the fact at the end of all digital signal processing there is an analogue stage. The circuit design, component selection, power supply and layout of this stage are all just as critical now in the digital era as they ever were in the analogue age. Gryphon Kalliope draws on decades of experience in the design and construction of some of the finest analogue audio systems the world has ever known. Digital Pioneers Kalliope is far from Gryphon’s first foray into the digital arena. Throughout the digital era, Gryphon Audio Designs have stood for major innovations, paving the way for others to follow. In 1998, Gryphon introduced the world to the sonic benefits of 88.2 kHz asynchronous sample rate conversion in the CDP-1 CD player, the world’s first implementation of this advanced technolo...

Esoteric D-02X 36-Bit Dual Mono DAC

Esoteric D-02X 36-Bit Dual Mono DAC

A total redesign of every component at its heart transforms the D/A converter in a spectacular renovation. New impressions await in compelling musical playback capability that crosses all boundaries. Featuring a total redesign of all its circuit components, the new D-02X compresses the monoblock design concept of Esoteric’s premier Grandioso D1 into a single-unit dual mono D/A converter without compromise. Retaining the D-02’s original configuration of four independent toroidal power supply circuits (for the digital circuitry, clock circuit, and left and right channel analog circuits), all components and patterns in each circuit have been significantly upgraded. Notably, the D/A circuitry that lies at the heart of this advanced unit now boasts 16 differential circuits per channel (32 outputs), double that of its earlier configuration, while maintaining the same grand sense of scale as the D1. Other features include new ES-LINK4 signal inputs, 36-bit D/A processing and the same Esoteric HCLD line buffer technology that has won accolades for the Grandioso C1 preamplifier. Extensive efforts have also been made to provide support for high-resolution playback, including the 11.2MHz DSD file format, for ever more penetrating musical playback capability. 36-Bit Resolution Accentuates the Most Delicate Sound Textures The D-02X uses 32 (16 + 16) DAC circuits to achieve its low-noise and phenomenal linearity. Its AK4490 chipsets are produced by Asahi Kasei Microdevices. In addition to directly processing DSD signals, a new 36-bit D/A processing algorithm performs analog conversion of the PCM signal at 36-bit resolution for smooth, delicately detailed high-resolution sound quality. ESOTERIC-HCLD*: Esoteric’s Exclusive Output Buffer Delivers Powerful Direct Current Transmission High-speed current transmission capacity is the most important factor in an analog output circuit’s ability to transmit the wide dynamic range of a musical signal without loss.

The e.One DAC 2.7 is the flagship pre-amplifier in the e.One series. Perfect with the REF500S or REF600M power amplifiers. The Bel Canto e.One series was originally inspired by new technology which enabled exceptionally high performance from a compact chassis by using advanced switching power supplies and amplifier technologies. The compact size imposes a focused design aesthetic where the chassis is stripped down to its essentials to achieve ultimate performance and functional goals. The compact, strong, rigid chassis also brought about benefits in mechanical performance, reducing the resonant profile of the chassis without resorting to expensive and massive construction.

Chord Electronics Qutest DAC

Chord Electronics Qutest DAC

Qutest is Chord Electronics ‘pure’ DAC (it does not contain headphone amplification or rechargeable batteries like some of its range stablemates) and is designed to improve sound quality in the home. It is the latest evolution of their most affordable standalone DAC, the multi-award-winning 2Qute, which it directly replaces.Qutest, which is a What Hi-Fi? Star of CES 2018, is based on Chord Electronics award-winning proprietary FPGA technology developed for the class-leading Hugo 2 DAC/headphone amp, giving it proven class-leading technical and sonic performance. Perfectly equipped to bring the benefits their digital technology to a wide range of connected devices, it features a galvanically isolated USB-B, optical and coaxial digital input, giving an instant performance upgrade, plus the ability to modernise ageing digital source components.The Qutest chassis is all-new, too. It has significantly greater mass than its predecessor and has been precision-machined from solid aircraft-grade aluminium billet. The Qutest PCB nestles within a shallow cavity in the solid aluminium chassis, giving the circuit board greater protection within the casework and additional isolation from external vibration compared to previous designs.Qutest offers Hugo 2’s proprietary user-selectable frequency-shaping filters and input selection controls, available via two fascia-mounted spheres, introducing useful flexibility. It also features RCA analogue outputs for connection to integrated amplifiers, preamps and headphone amps, plus high-resolution dual-data digital inputs for connection to future Chord Electronics products.A further new feature is a user-selectable output voltage available in 1, 2 and 3V RMS outputs for flexible connectivity with a wide range of partnering devices.
