Better than -100dB0 @ 20Hz-20kHz.
2 filters on Debussy give different trade-offs between the Nyquist image rejection and the phase response. Filter 1 is a classic sharp filter, with linear phase and pre-ringing. Filter 2 is an alternative filter, which has non-linear phase and no pre-ringing.
Loaded from CD or PC via USB or PCM digital inputs.
IR (RC5) or RS232. A dCS Premium remote control is supplied as standard.
