dCS Scarlatti CD/SACD Transport in Silver. Unit is in excellent condition physically and works perfectly. 230V. No blemishes or scratches. Has been used in a smoke free environment. Comes with original factory boxes and packaging, manual, power cord, BNC,1394 cable and remote.
Scarlatti Transport features both IEEE 1394 FireWire link and an enhanced Dual AES interface which output dCS-encrypted DSD (1-bit data at 2.822MHz) to a dCS DAC from CD or SACD. Scarlatti Transport upsamples CD data to DSD and transmits the data over the 1394 or Dual AES interface. SACDs are played in their native DSD format, again over the IEEE 1394 or Dual AES interface. Native CD data is available from 7 PCM outputs (2x AES/EBU and 4x S/PDIF, 1x SDIF-2), as is downsampled SACD data.
Scarlatti Transport is designed for use with the matching Scarlatti DAC or any suitable industry-standard DAC. The unit may be run in Master mode or by using the DAC as the system clock. Performance will be enhanced further by adding the Scarlatti Clock to the system.
The latest enhancement to Scarlatti Transport is the new output mode which reconfigures the two AES outputs as a dual AES output carrying encrypted DSD data. This mode is compatible with Paganini, Scarlatti and Vivaldi DACs.
