+ Puccini upsamples Red Book CDs to DSD and plays SACDs in their native format. + Puccini uses the latest version of our patented dCS Ring DAC, which has several detail improvements over earlier versions. + The dCS Ring DAC is a discrete balanced design which does not use any off-the-shelf DAC chips commonly found in other manufacturers' products + Our proprietary 5 bit oversampling topology produces exceptional linearity across the dynamic range. + All dCS products use a sophisticated multi-mode phase locked loop (PLL), which significantly reduces clock jitter + Faster, 100% accurate Digital Signal Processors (within the bounds of their resolution) give improved filters, revealing yet more fine detail. + Higher capacity FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) give more logic capacity and increase the scope for additional features and enhancements + Improved power supplies give lower running temperature and increased tolerance to AC supply variations + Our ‘soft' approach to programmable logic allows dCS products to adapt to changes in digital formats and add new features by loading new software from a CD. + High grade aluminium chassis and laminated acoustic damping panels reduce magnetic effects and vibration. + Puccini features a low-power LCD display that makes the user interface easier to read, keeps the power requirements down and minimises electrical noise
Upsampling CD/SACD Player
Dual laser CD/SACD mechanism. (Teac UMK-5™).
Patented dCS Ring DAC topology, oversampling to 5 bits at 2.822 or 3.07 MS/s. CD data may be upsampled to DSD before oversampling.
Output Levels: 2V rms or 6V rms
INPUTS: 2x SPDIF on 2x RCA Phono connectors accepts 24 bit PCM at 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 & 96kS/s.
