Esoteric P-1 D-1 SACD CD DAC

Esoteric all the way

Stand out expressiveness "36bitD / A processing" (patent pending)
Multiple combination 32bitDAC device, D1 adopt 36bitD / A processing algorithm that converts an analog signal PCM signal in high resolution 36bit. Taking advantage of gradation of high-bit data, you can make a faithful analog conversion. 32bit boasts a resolution of 256 times the 24bit but, 36bit high resolution phenomenal (4096 times the 24bit) the 16 times further. Through the finer bit gray scale, and kept to a minimum the calculation error, I am proud of the power of expression that stand out to delicate music signal.

The state-of-the-art to enable broadband transmission "ES-LINK4"

Developed using an HDMI cable, to perform ultra-wideband digital transmission of 352.8kHz/48bit PCM or DSD,, state-of-the-art transmission format ES-LINK4 own. Is performed in the sending side the majority of the digital signal processing, ES-LINK4 has drastically reduced the load of the digital signal processing of the D / A converter.Ultra-wide band even more than, to specialize in D / A conversion process of the original D / A converter by "PureD / A" thought, I sought high-quality sound.

New dimension isorated clock technology

Clock circuit that provides an accurate reference clock to the digital circuit, the heart just for digital player.P1/D1 independent from other circuits completely power supply unit, to ground the clock circuit. I will supply the system clock pure. VCXO to be mounted (voltage controlled crystal oscillator), jointly developed with (NIHON DEMPA KOGYO) NDK crystal oscillator leading manufacturer in P1/D1 only. As a precision clock custom device suitable for the highest peak model, phase noise is very small, with a crystal piece even larger than before, to support the high-quality sound reproduction.

Precision Clock sync

To reduce the jitter by connecting a BNC cable and D1 P1, clock sync to (synchronized playback). In response to the PLL-free, direct master clock LINK ※ of ESOTERIC own which enables clock processing pure, and has won a clear sound quality and accurate sound localization unambiguous. In addition, in connection with the high-precision master clock rubidium G-01 (sold separately), can also advanced system up further. In addition to 22MHz, 10MHz master clock of, corresponding to clock sink of different frequencies to meet, such as word clock (44.1kHz/88.2kHz/176.4kHz), to your choice of sound quality.

※ system that is supplied to P1 to straight the reference clock = 22.5792MHz master clock of the digital audio output generated by the high-precision clock module of D1, is used as the clock of the digital output circuit without going through the PLL circuit of P1 inside. It corresponds to using a 10MHz clock supplied from the G-01 (sold separately), also direct 10MHz master clock LINK.
