NEW! ACCUPHASE DP-950 & DC-950

 

    The new Accuphase DP-950 and DC-950 is regarded as the best overall CD/SACD Playback System in the world. Digital signal processing is implemented through an ultra-high-speed FPGA in conjunction with innovative MDSD reproduction technology, forming a double-speed high-precision moving-average filter circuit for straight D/A conversion of the DSD signal. Eight digital inputs including USB with support for 11.2896 MHz (1-bit 2-channel DSD) and 384 kHz (32-bit 2-channel PCM), as well as an HS-LINK connector (Version 1 and 2) provide enhanced versatility for the ultimate in performance and sonic purity. The product demonstrates ultimate mechanical precision matched with ingenuity and the famous Accuphase dedication to sonic excellence.

The ultra-massive SA-CD drive combines superior rigidity with rock-stable accuracy. Truly a monumental event in the world of high-end audio. In the transport, a digital servo with a dedicated DSP assures accurate readout of the signal recorded on the SA-CD using the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) principle. This is sustained by a single-lens/twin laser diode pickup mounted to a high-speed access mechanism. The transport not only realizes optimal reproduction of SA-CDs, it also is capable of extracting a super accurate signal from conventional CDs. The output for both SA-CD and CD is provided via the Accuphase exclusive high-performance digital interface HS-Link (RJ-45 connector), while the CD output is also available via a coaxial connector. The HS-Link cable supplied with the DP-950 can be used for connection to the DC-950 or to other components.

The Accuphase DC-950 Digital processor was designed for ultimate SA-CD quality. Innovative digital signal processing technology MDSD (Multiple Double Speed DSD). Moving-average filter circuit configured with delay and eight parallel converters achieves straight D/A conversion of DSD signal. Seven digital inputs for enhanced versatility. The DC-901 showcases Accuphase´s mastery of sophisticated digital technology and creative circuit topology. It is a digital processor designed to realize the ultimate in SA-CD reproduction. A new technique called MDSD (Multiple Double Speed DSD) allows straight D/A conversion of the DSD signal. MDSD employs eight MDS++ type D/A converters operating in parallel to reduce conversion errors to an absolute minimum while at the same acting as a high-cut filter that removes noise in the high-frequency range. The Direct Balanced Filter is configured with entirely separate balanced and unbalanced signal paths, and a further refined "Ultra Jitter-Free +" PLL circuit extracts the master clock for the D/A converter with absolute precision. The overall result is music reproduction that finally brings out the full sonic potential of the SA-CD format.


For connectivity to various sources, the DC-950 offers a full complement of digital inputs: HS-Link, balanced, coaxial (3 streams), and optical (2 streams). This allows the music data to be supplied to the processor without any degradation in quality. Two sets of digital outputs (coaxial and optical) let the user easily connect a digital recorder, for recording of sources other than SA-CD. And there´s even a set of EXTERNAL DSP input/output connectors that allows using the Digital Voicing Equalizer DG-58 for sound field processing in the digital domain.

 

 

NEW! ACCUPHASE DP-720 CD/SACD REFERENCE PLAYER

 

    When Accuphase introduced the ultimate separate-type SA-CD/CD player, the models DP-900 and DC-901, a new epoch in audio history had begun. Garnering worldwide acclaim both for their technological excellence and sound quality, the transport and processor pair has become the new reference for SA-CD reproduction. The new DP-720 is an integrated type SA-CD player incorporating that very same state-of-the-art technology. In the transport section, a dedicated DSP chip controls the digital servo to assure accurate readout of the signal recorded on the SA-CD. 

Another vital aspect is the single-lens/twin laser diode pickup mounted to a high-speed positioning mechanism, providing a significant improvement in read access times and accuracy. The processor section features the innovative MDSD principle forming a sophisticated moving average filter circuit, together with the MDS++ D/A system that keeps conversion errors to an absolute minimum and at the same time acts as high-cut filter efficiently removing noise components in the high frequency domain. Internally, the transport and processor sections of the DP-720 are kept entirely separate. Digital inputs allow independent use of the processor section for external sources to enjoy music reproduction with the same superb quality. Link to Accuphase website.

The low center of gravity and the quiet and smooth loading mechanism also contribute to the quality of signal reproduction. The processor section features sophisticated circuit design and the latest digital technology. The MDS++ D/A approach developed by Accuphase has been further refined here, with four strictly selected high-performance delta-sigma devices operating in parallel, forming a conversion system of outstanding accuracy. The outstanding sound and high performance of the D/A converter section can be accessed also by external equipment. Three types of digital inputs (USB, coaxial, and optical) accept digital signals from other components, for processing with the highest musical accuracy. Link to Accuphase website.

HIGH-END AUDIO NOTES FROM THE PALACE

 

    Through the years we have been asked many times over by audiophiles worldwide what makes a true reference CD Player, Transport/DAC different from most other real world CD Players. Well, I can tell you from my experience that the biggest difference I find is the overall realism, life like tonality of instruments and voices, there is an ambience and air in recordings that I do not hear with most CD Players and DAC's. I will even go as far as to tell you that the music has a soul, a certain realness about the music when is played through the right digital system.

 

There is nothing that the preamp, amplifier, speakers, cables and AC can do to fix what's not right from the start. If your music sounds thin, analytical, cold, unattached, unmusical, mechanical or forward when it gets to your preamp, there isn't much the rest of the system can do to make the sound right.

 

In the past 22 years we have done many tests with world class CD Players, Transports and DAC's. I must tell you, it's hard to explain why some deliver "magic" and most don't. True reference CD playback systems cost from $20,000 to over $100,000 now days, that's how much it cost to have a true state-of-the-art front end in your system. Most audiophiles refuse to accept that, they simply do not believe that you have to spend that much money to have a true state-of-the-art front end, so they buy players between $500 and $5,000 to do the job.

 

Most of the time an audiophiles spends more trying to achieve the right sound by buying and trying different players through a period of time than if there were to buy what they really wanted in the first place.

 

Let's think about this last statement for a moment. You have spent all this money on your system and it still does not sound right, what could it be? The more audiophiles and high-end audio stores you speak to the more confuse you get, everyone provides a different opinion, so you start replacing components, speakers, cables, players and you still not there. Most likely you will never get there because one of the most important things in a high-end system is the quality of sound of your front-end, being CD or Vinyl.

NEODIO NR22T CD TRANSPORT & NR22 DAC

     Here is the unique opportunity to own the French world-class NEODIO NR22T CD Transport & NR22D DAC, a part of the LAMM, Da Vinci with the WILSON AUDIO Alexandria Loudspeakers cost no object system for three years straight. See above a must see video of what Robert Harley and Steve Stone from The Absolute Sound calls the best sound of cost no object system.

READ SOME OF THE FEEDBACKS!

“…the detail of dCS, the naturalness of Wadia, the stage- width of an Esoteric and the bounce of Naim. It manages to mix the best of these without sacrificing the whole.”

“NeoDio keeps impressing me on the tonal color and bass elasticity resembling much of my Da Vinci LP setup. I have not heard a better source playing vocal, violin and cello! The realism just thrills me up!!”

“I would not spend the time to tell you all the scores by attributes if my "gang" over here was not "floored" by it. Neodio eclipses the Zanden 2000p/5000s by a wide margin, as musicality seems to be newly discovered from the same records over and over."

The dynamics and vibrancy of the whole frequency range eclipsed the goldmund by a planet. The vinyl-like density is shocking. We thought we need to compare again. But not necessary, it just stay on my rack now.”

     The Zanden Model 5000 LE is arguably the world's best reference Tube DAC. One of the most organic and musical sounding tube DAC ever built in the history of high-end audio. This work of art you see here is a dedicated high-end 16 Bit DAC for red book CD's only, its does not decode DVD's or any other format other than regular CD's, in other words 98% of your whole CD collection. This gorgeous Tube DAC has AES/EBU though XLR, BNC, 2 RCA Digital Inputs and RCA Analog Outputs. 

The 5000 Limited Edition consist of a two chassis DAC with an outboard full size power supply, the custom made 16 Bit DAC's and premium tubes. This Limited Edition DAC is the best work of art ever made by Zanden, there is a big difference in performance between this DAC and any other Zanden.

The sound of this stunning DAC is so good that it makes 95% of the DAC's out there sound broken, digitize, mechanical, analytical, cold sounding. I did a side by side test with a nice turntable set up and this Zanden Tube DAC provided a sound as good as the turntable. If CD's is what you listen too on your high-end system and you have notice that the music is not engaging, smooth, natural, unattached consider a move to Zanden Land. You will hear music with this Limited Edition DAC like you have never heard before, with no digital traces, with the correct equalization and timbre. Here are a couple of reviews about ZADEN: SOUNDSTAGE and 6MOONS. This unit is in new conditions, I believe the HR Photo above speaks for its self. This unit is a 120 Volt US unit.
