"DSD1024 and PCM decoding supports up to PCM1536" - that would be last think I would worry about DAC

Alrigth guys. I thought i would share with you that the ARES II comes with NOS/OS and Slow/Sharp filters too!

 

NOS/OS Selection:

1. Press the Mute button once to enter configuration mode

2. Press the Opt1 momentarily

- Opt1 On = NOS

- Opt1 Off = OS

3. Wait for 5s

4. Ares II back in operational mode

 

Filter Selection:

1. Press the Mute button once to enter configuration mode

2. Press the Opt2 momentarily

- Opt2 On = Slow Filter

- Opt2 Off = Sharp Filter

3. Wait for 5s

4. Ares II back in operational mode

Are there separate converters for DSD and PCM?  Or does DSD get converted to PCM and then to analog via R2R?

Hello @barrows,

 

All DENAFRIPS DAC does DSD decoding in native. 

 

Cheers,

Alvin

Perhaps @Miska would be interested in this DAC?

 

Yes, it is certainly interesting. I have to see if I can get one without too much hassle at reasonable price...
