- ¬∑ A DAC module using two ES9023 Sabre DAC chips operating in differential mode. This mode of operation gives lower noise & distortion than a single chip implementation. Power supplies to and in the DAC chips are very low noise, much better than the datasheet recommendation for the ES9023.
- ¬∑ The Sabre DAC chips are asynchronously clocked by a low jitter clock, this ensures any jitter in the digital sources is reduced to an insignificantly low level. Clock frequency has been chosen for best sound quality.
- ¬∑ Opamps made from discrete components & operating in class A (better than any integrated opamp we have tried), only one per channel is needed to combine the differential audio signals.
- ¬∑ A mains transformer & low noise linear power supplies for the DAC module & opamps.
- ¬∑ Additional capacitors in the BDP150 power supplies to reduce noise. The BDP150 circuits only have to decode the audio data to i2s format for the DAC module they are not critical to final sound quality but for a small cost we have improved them anyway.
- ¬∑ Chassis vibration control is added to improve immunity to acoustic feedback.
- Available with phono RCA or XLR Balanced outputs.
