+ Puccini is a revelation - a high end system in one box - combining the aesthetics of the Paganini with all of our upsampling, DAC and CD/SACD player technology in a single, easy to set up unit which delivers unbeatable performance. + The Puccini range now features a patent pending (GB0817141.5) Puccini U-Clock which is separate grade 1 system clock to further reduce jitter and improve performance. Puccini U-Clock also features a USB to SPDIF converter, which enables Puccini owners to present sound files from a PC or Mac to the legendary dCS Ring DAC inside the Puccini. + Asynchronous USB Mode + USB is isochronous. This means that the host (PC) and client (Puccini U-Clock) both know how much bandwidth is available at the outset, so the host can guarantee that bandwidth will be available all the time.
Asynchronous USB 2.0 interface on type B connector accepts PCM audio data at 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kS/s Puccini U-Clock will present data received via the USB interface, unprocessed, in SPDIF format on 2 x RCA Phono connectors.
Word clock I/O:
4 independently buffered outputs on 75 BNC connectors, all carry the same clock frequency. With the USB interface active at 32, 48 or 96kS/s, the word clock outputs are set to 48kHz. With the USB interface active at 44.1 or 88.2kS/s, the word clock outputs are set to 44.1kHz.
44.1kHz or 48kHz, calibrated within +/-1ppm, (typically +/-0.1ppm), temperature compensated.
Loaded from ROM by distributor.
Factory set for 100 - 120 or 200 - 240 V AC, 49 - 62Hz.
