Network Bridge 網路串流器

dCS網路串流器,優美、簡易卻有著強大的功能與介面,成為您與數位音樂之間的橋樑。 

這台網路串流器能夠接收多種高解析音樂格式,像是NAS、USB、網路串流平台,甚至是APPLE裝置使用的AirPlay,將完整無損的音樂輸出到DAC。

dCS還配備獨家專屬的APP提供全方位的操作,不管是輸入輸出或是主時鐘的設置。網路串流器所使用的APP與旗艦VIVALDI相同,提供一個非常簡易的介面卻整合了所有的網路串流功能,使您快速簡便地管理龐大的數位音樂資料庫。

網路串流器的內部核心使用了一個功能強大的FPGA,整合軟體為「ROON」,它支援非常多高解析網路音樂平台,像是TIDAL和Spotify。網路串流器的功能特色非常清楚且運作完美,目前能夠支援的檔案規格最高至24-bit, 384kS/s,支援了目前所有主流的無損格式,更能支援來自原始檔或是DoP的DSD與DSDx2規格。

適用於歷年來dCS各式型號的DAC,能夠將檔案規格降頻來使用。降頻的特點是我們將高解析的規格(比如DXD或DSD)降到24bit的PCM格式,不管是176.4/192kS/s或是88.2/96kS/s-使所有的數位檔案都能支援您DAC的相容規格。

網路串流器同樣地使用了簡易操作且高效率的dCS主時鐘系統,與旗艦VIVALDI和ROSSINI主時鐘相同,能夠將時基誤差降到最低且大幅提升聲音的質感。網路串流器的內部軟體可透過連接網路方式以APP快速完成升級,如此簡便的升級方式使用戶能夠在未來新增更多的功能並提昇產品的表現。

dCS的產品無論是設計及製作都在英國完成,串流器優美的外殼使用了航太鋁合金來減少震動產生的音染和電磁波的影響。而我們更使用了電源隔離裝置來確保敏感的主時鐘電路不會受到來自數位處理的噪訊影響。

Weight4.6kg/10.2lbs.
Digital InputsNetwork interface on an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connector – Acts as a UPnP™ renderer operating in asynchronous mode, streaming digital music from a NAS or local computer over a standard Ethernet network, decoding all major formats. Network and built-in WiFi accept data streamed from an iPod, iPhone or iPad via Apple AirPlay™. Music can be streamed from the internet via Spotify Connect™ or Tidal™, the Network Bridge is Roon™ ready. USB 2.0 high speed interface on type A connector operating in asynchronous mode, streams digital music from external drive.
Digital Outputs2x AES/EBU on 3-pin male XLR connectors, each outputs PCM at up to 24 bit 192kS/s or DSD/64 in DoP format. Used as a Dual AES pair, the interface outputs PCM at up to 384kS/s, DSD/64 & DSD/128 in DoP format. 1x SPDIF on 1x RCA Phono connector, outputs PCM at up to 24 bit 192kS/s or DSD/64 in DoP format. 1x SDIF-2 interface on 2x BNC connectors, outputs PCM at up to 24 bit 96kS/s or SDIF-2 DSD/64.
Wordclock I/O2x Word Clock Inputs on 2x BNC connectors, accept standard word clock at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192kHz. The data rate can be the same as the clock rate or an exact multiple of the clock rate. Sensitive to TTL levels. Word Clock Output on 1x BNC connector, carries Word Clock at the same frequency as the data rate up to 96kHz.
File FormatsFLAC, AIFF & WAV – up to 24 bit PCM at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192, 352.8 or 384kS/s. ALAC – up to 24 bit PCM at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 & 192kS/s. AAC, MP3, WMA & OGG – up to 24 bit PCM at 44.1 or 48kS/s. DFF, DSF & DoP – DSD/64 & DSD/128. Apple AirPlay – 44.1 or 48kS/s.
ConversionsUser-selectable down-sampling to match legacy DACs: – 176.4 & 352.8 > 24/176.4 or 24/88.2 – 192 & 384 > 24/192 or 24/96 – DSD/64 & DSD/128 > 24/176.4 or 24/88.2 This feature is set by the Network Bridge App.
Software UpdatesDownload and update functionality available via the Network Bridge App.
