SOUNDAWARE A280C HIFI DAC DSD Integrated Network Streaming Lossless Desktop Music Player
A super desktop with concise, convenient utility features
The design of A280C is based on SOUNDAWARE national patented professional high - fidelity streaming music playback architecture, which bases on the FPGA and dual native audio crystal oscillator to decode the audio file, obtaining highest performance and minimum jitter.
The principle of PCM and DSD sampling
No matter which sampling type is used , the importance is the original playback.
For DSD data music files, the best choice to choose a device which could support DSD original playback. Why ?
The PCM sampling time is equal, and the sampling time interval is related with sampling frequency. The sampling frequency could be increased to approach to the analog signal at the best, ensure the signal is simulated digitally.
Then the DSD is different from the PCM. When the signal sharply changes, the data sampled in this period of time could be very large; otherwise, when the signal is flat, the sample data would be very little.
With one analog signal, choose PCM or DSD to sampling and playback, the effect is very different. The core reason is that the PCM is sampled by equal time, which makes the sound more sensitive on the dynamic. However the DSD playback makes the sound more smooth, less harsh, since the DSD can exactly react the change trend.
SOUNDAWARE patented high-fidelity streaming music playback architecture
(Patent NO: 201220264227.3)
CPU deals outside facility, while FPGA handling hard decoding and excellent digital clock treatment. Both them and DAC proceeds are isolated, without mutual influence, making sure the best performance.
It inherits much optimization experience and circuit structure from A200, having the same quality, but function is more utility, But she has her own preamplifier, and could be used as digital dial player, independent DAC and headphone amplifier . Different with A200, coaxial and optical input are added ，which means it could be used as an independent decoder.
Independent DAC/Headphone AMP/Preamp Professional Digital output
A super desktop player integrating the convenience, utility and Hi-Fi sound
Since the beginning of 2013, SOUNDAWARE started developing one player, which could support decoding DSD format files directly, instead of converting DSD data into PCM firstly , that used on all of the present high fidelity playback products at that time. Until 2014, after obtaining the program of 1 Bit DSD original playback, R&D have to conquer the barrier of developing another effective control method and circuit module. Ultimately, they succeed and apply the original playback architecture to high fidelity products.
