1 USB cable
This is the latest 2013 Edition with an additional +13 db of Gain and can replace ones pre-amp. .. It also has the latest May 2014 Firmware update which is rock solid..
The Dual Core has 3 inputs ... Analog RCA and XLR, USB ( limited to 48/24 ) and SPDIF. The best input is the SPDIF input which supports up to 96/24.
To get the best performance from the Dual Core with Digital inputs we have two low cost solutions using the award winning modules from Wyred4Sound.
If your source is SPDIF, then all you need is the Remedy Clock. In addition to re-clocking your SPDIF digital audio, it also up-samples all your CD files from 44.1/16 to 96/24 which is the optimum sample rate for the Dual Core.
If your source is USB / Computer Audio, then we suggest adding the W4S uLink which then feeds the SPDIF input of the Dual Core.
The picture shows the Dual Core on the OPTIONAL ULN-2 PSU (Ultra Linear PSU) which retailed for $ 500..... USED ULN-2 PSUs are now available at $ 250 ( 1/2 Price ).
OPTION 1) ADD a used ULN-2 PSU for Just $ 250... or $ 799 TOTAL....
Our ULN-2 PSU improves the performance of the Dual Core on all 3 of its inputs and also improves the performance of the Wyred4Sound modules which it can also power.
The ULN-2 PSU case can also neatly house a Wyred4Sound uLINK USB to Toslink Converter ( $ 299 Retail - USED $ 200 ) OR Remedy Clock ( $ 399 Retail - USED $ 300).
OPTION 2) ADD a USED ULN-2 PSU and uLINK for an extra $ 450... $ 999 TOTAL ... This is the RETAIL for the DC on its own and well worth it for USB playback.
OPTION 3 ) ADD a USED ULN-2 PSU and Remedy for an extra $ 550 .. $ 1099 TOTAL.
If your Primary source is SPDIF then the 96/24 UP-SAMPLING W4S Remedy is really worth it.
ALL Prices includes the 2-3 day Coast to Coast USPS Priority shipping within Continental USA.
