The Paganini Upsampler takes over the legendary dCS upsampling function from the Paganini transport, at first sight appearing rather unnecessary. However there's no doubting the jump in performance when it's in the system.
The Upsampler also introduces the USB input facility to enable replay of high-resolution computer files.
From the dCS site: "Upsampling to progressively higher sample rates makes progressive improvements to fine detail, sound stage depth and image separation. This means the sound quality increases as you upsample CD data first to 24/88.2, then to 24/176.4, then to DSD." All signals, including those from Mac and PC, can be upsampled in this way.
