The Scarlatti group is an incredible performer, able to play CD/SACD, high-resolution computer files and accept other digital sources with industry standard outputs.
"Well there you have it: The best digital sources I've yet heard" The Absolute Sound
This Scarlatti DAC is a comprehensively capable decoding device, based around the famous dCS Ring DAC that does not use any off-the-shelf chips, unlike most other DACs, but rather the software-based approach that allows dCS to upgrade and add facilities for new formats.
The DAC capabilities in brief:
- Internal digital volume control, allowing direct connection to a power amplifier
- Inputs for industry-standard digital signals plus an upsampled DSD stream from either the Scarlatti transport or the separate Upsampler
- A Master mode to provide a clock for data from the source, or to lock to an external clock such as the Scarlatti Master Clock
