Bel Canto Designs PL-2 SDI player all format player DVD/DACD/CD/DVD-A. New retail $5000. Very clean except for nick showing on right top.
The PL-2 uses the highest performance reference clocks and custom high voltage reference oscillators as used in the PL-1A for the audio and video D/A conversion and digital outputs. This insures optimum conversion quality for the best sonic and visual performance and minimum clock jitter for the digital outputs.
The control and mechanical portions of the player mechanism are slaved to these reference clocks to insure optimum jitter performance and the D/A conversion and digital output paths with minimal influence from the drive mechanism.
High current isolated and double regulated power supplies insure a stable operating environment.
The high current switching regulator is used for pre-regulated power with additional stages of analog filtering and active regulation provide low noise supplies for each critical stage and multiple regulator stages are used in this sophisticated power distribution system.
The PL-2 has wide dynamic range multi-bit delta sigma audio conversion with 118 dB dynamic range that converts with 128X over-sampling.
