The data is conveyed via “asynchronous transmission,” which does not synchronize with the USB clock of the computer, thus allowing high-quality playback with minimal jitter.
The power supply section is driven from USB bus power, thus avoiding any noise component that might enter via the power cable, ensuring high quality audio playback.
The DA converter uses the CS4398 made by Cirrus Logic, the same reliable and ultra-high-quality component that can be found on the MR series devices. It provides performance equivalent to that of the MR-1000, an acclaimed standard in professional studios and as a field recording device, providing high quality that exceeds other units in its class.
In this way, the DS-DAC-100/100m has been designed with painstaking detail and with the highest specifications for every part of the system.
