Vivaldi Upsampling CD/SACD 轉盤

dCS Vivaldi新旗艦,重新定義何謂頂尖數位播放系統,其設計完全呈現”絕不妥協”的顛峰之作,無人能敵的家庭式音樂系統,更締造了未來數位音響最新標竿。

Vivaldi Transport的設計在於最極致的表現出CD、SACD的音樂細節以及多元功能的光碟播放器。Vivaldi Transport所有的訊號傳輸都是由dCS設計的電路板所控制。使用TEAC Esoteric VRDS Neo™裝置,以及非常堅固穩定的內部構造,隨著無刷馬達及重飛輪使光碟穩定轉動。

強而有力的Vivaldi Transport數位操作平台是以FPGA晶片,數位訊號操作晶片(DSP)及微控制系統為基礎。它們皆使用dCS在英國研發的編碼。Vivaldi Transport的邏輯運算能力比上一代快2倍,強調無與倫比的音質和精準表現。為了使電源供應更加純淨並隔離電子裝置,Vivaldi Transport全新箱體設計將數位及CD/SACD裝置部分的電流分開。如此一來,機器運作時將會格外安靜。

Vivaldi Transport有兩條AES輸出端子可以支援dCS編碼的DSD(1 bit data at the rate of 2.822MS/s)將CD或SACD傳至dCS的DAC。Vivaldi Transport 也能將CD訊號轉換成DXD(24 bit data at the rate of 352.8kS/s)藉由相同的兩條AES介面傳輸訊號。SACD以原始的DSD格式播放,也是使用兩條AES介面。原始的CD訊號可由4個PCM輸出端子輸出(1x AEC/EBU, 2xSPDIF, 1xSDIF-2),因為已經下降取樣成CD訊號了。

Vivaldi Transport可以和Vivaldi DAC搭配使用或是任何合適規格的DAC。這台機器可以當Master或是當系統主時鐘與DAC一起使用。加上Vivaldi Clock表現會更加提昇。

dCS 簡易的可編程式邏輯方便用戶輕鬆升級Vivaldi Transport軟體,或是添增新的功能,將表現提昇甚至是更改數位格式。Vivaldi Transport無時無刻呈現最真實的表現。
