The main chassis milled from ingots of aluminum eliminates unnecessary vibration and external noise to the utmost.
The unit features no internal clock generator and is driven by 10MHz external input.
The attached clock generator is a hi-fi OCXO with low phase noise,
a top-shelf master clock generator that is a robust standalone product in its own right.
Swapping it out for a PMC-00BVA EX or PMC-02 EX will yield even greater fidelity.
External power source
Like the DSP-00 EX, this unit features an external power enclosure,
completely shutting out noise and vibrations from the transformers.
Designed to efficiently disperse vibration,
spiked feet right under the toroidal transformers supports the enclosure.
Outstanding low phase noise clock
The unit features an outstanding low phase noise (120dBc/Hz @ 10Hz) TCXO,
with the clock architecture deploying a specialized IC that achieves jitter
below 100fs (femtoseconds: 1/1000 of a picosecond).
In addition, the DAC's master clock is delivered by differential wiring.
No effort is spared to stop jitter in its tracks.
Integrated power supply
With separate analog and digital transformers and SiC Schottky diode based rectification,
the DSP-04 EX borrows from its high-end cousins in the lineup to boast an equally robust power supply.
Superlative internal architecture borrowed from high-end models
DSP-04 EX uses the same low phase noise TCXO as that of DSP-02 EX. In addition, the CPU,
clock generator circuit, and analog power supply are identical to those used in the DSP-02 EX,
following in the footsteps of its high-performance, no-compromises architecture.
Next generation audio for high-resolution and DSD.
Audio network player is a new style of audio.
So-called High-Resolution music sources with sound quality superior to CDs are now being sold via download.
By using network player, you can enjoy sound sources stored on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) or a PC,
using a tablet device as a remote control, just like a Juke Box. You can easily search tracks by genre, artist name, etc.
You can also enjoy viewing album art on the screen of your tablet device.
You can check a track title, an album name, and an artist name on your tablet's screen
and on the display of the network player as well.
Network player is truly the next-generation of audio,
with high sound quality, high reliability and easy operation.
The SFORZATO network player plays not only high-resolution PCM, but also DSD.
It plays all high quality sources with outstanding sound quality.
All you do is choose the tracks on your tablet. After that, just sit back and enjoy.
ES9018S for D/A conversion
ES9018S is used for D/A conversion.
The ESS DAC no longer relies on internal jitter removal, running in perfect synch with signal input.
The high-fidelity clock and scrupulously arranged clock wiring and architecture ensure perfectly synchronized, jitter-free audio.
The DSP-02 EX has twin left and right ES9018S, while the DSP-00 EX boasts two per side for a total of four,
achieving massive improvements in dynamic range.
Robust power supply
With distinct digital and analog power sources, high capacity transformers,
and the high-speed, low noise SiC, the devices drive high power for deep, rich music playback.
The dedicated DAC's analog 3.3V and 1.2V sources feature discrete, feedback-based power
with a high-speed, low noise error amplifier, while the analog output uses a discrete,
feedback-less power source.
On the digital side, multiple hi-fi LT1763 LDOs, courtesy of Linear Technology, regulate POL (point of load).
Each integrated circuit works in a discrete fashion without interference from the others, utilizing
100% of their capabilities and ensuring jitter-free playback.
The DSP-00 EX and DSP-02 EX house the power components in a separate, external enclosure,
completely eliminating the effects of transformer noise.
In addition, the DSP-00 EX uses separate left and right power sources, eliminating interference on the left and right channels.
Using a multi-layer circuit board with a wide top / bottom grand
plane allows the majority of digital signals to be arrayed within the
Heavy shielding reduces noise to the utmost.
Non-magnetic noise absorbing sheets and shield casing cover noise generating components like the CPU,
which provides network connectivity, and the clock circuit area, achieving robust noise suppression.
The DSP-00 EX uses an 8-layer PCB, while the DSP-02 EX and DSP-04 EX use 6-layer boards.
10MHz Clock input
All products in the DSP lineup feature a clock generator with outstanding low phase noise.
If you wish to enjoy still further fidelity, the units come equipped with a 10MHz master clock input.
The digital controller is driven by an ARM11 microcomputer and FPGA.
Network-based software updates allow your device to always enjoy the latest features and functionality -
this means our products continue to evolve even after you've purchased them.
Not only is PCM supported, but native DSD playback is also available.
AIFF, WAV, FLAC, Apple Lossless and WMA Lossless
44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz, 176.4kHz, 192kHz / 16bit, 24bit
(WMA Lossless: 44.1kHz - 16bit only)
DSF, DIFF 2.8MHz, 5.6MHz, 11.2MHz.
Support for future formats will be added by way of software updates.
Our products includes alpha Media Link SDK that is licensed from Alpha Systems Inc.
