High resolution USB DAC
MQA working principle
When the analogue sound is converted to a digital signal, time blurring will occur, blurring transient signals over time. As a result, our ears cannot tell where a single sound comes from, the comparison between recorded music and “live performances” is unremarkable! MQA can eliminate this distortion and create a true 3D sound field, which is different from any sound you have ever heard.
Before using MQA
Common digital audio filters will damage the time resolution. There will be a “hum” before and after the transient.
After using MQA
Compared with 24/192 recording, MQA reduces the number of vibrations before and after by more than 10 times.
Encapsulate the sound
Once the blur in the recording is removed, MQA will use what we call a “musical origami” process, which cleverly makes this large resolution file easy to manage and can be compatible with any service or playback device.
This will expand the MQA file once to provide better sound quality than CD quality.
Use the product with MQA renderer to complete the final deployment. Renderer including USB DAC’s and some headphones and other portable products.
MQA Full Audio DAC
Products with MQA full decoder can fully expand the file to provide the best sound quality. Playing at this level, you will hear the original sound created by the artist in the recording studio, with precise files and specific DAC compensation and management.
High-end components just for sound quality
The unit uses the high-end ES9038RO D/A chip from ESS. The SNR is as high as 140dB, and the total harmonic distortion plus noise is -122dB. At the same time it is 32-bit, eight-channel DAC chip, with high resolution and high dynamic frequency response, D1 se achieves a low distortion rate of 0.00009% (-121dB).
With ES9311, ESS high-performance DAC dedicated power supply chip ES9311, power supply noise is as low as 1uVrms, pushing the performance of ES9038PRO to the limit.
USB uses XMOS XU-216, Real 32bit USB solution, support Dop and native DSDPCM up to 768kHz, DAD supports up to DSD512.
The enthusiast-grade Japanese nichicon KG series filter capacitors and low-noise power supply circuits make the sound even sweeter.
The fever-grade sealed toroidal transformer, the advantage of silence, lower leakage flux, small volume, the disadvantage is the high price, the authentication complete.
