Professional version of the Purcell D-D Upsampler capable of upsampling CD's (or any PCM source) at all common sample rates up to 24/192KHz or DSD (i.e SACD format). For the best possible sound DSD mode is recommended.
Note: For sample rates above 96KHz dual-wire AES interface is required and for DSD a DAC with an SDIF-2 interface (e.g. dCS Elgar, Delius or Scarlatti) is required. I will include the SDIF-2 BNC cable and two AES cables with the unit.

Input data formats: AES/EBU (XLR), Dual AES (XLR), S/PDIF (Phono, BNC, TosLink), SDIF-2 (BNC). Output data formats: AES/EBU (XLR), Dual AES (XLR), S/PDIF (Phono, BNC, TosLink), SDIF-2 (BNC). Converts high-speed AES, S/PDIF, or SDIF-2 into Dual AES or vice versa. 10 user-programmable setups. Output word length, dither, and noise-shaping all user-selectable. Software upgradeable for data format and function. Dual voltage mains supply.
Dimensions: 19" W by 3½" H by 16" D.
Unit will be securely packed, insured and shipped at cost price via Fed-Ex economy delivery. Please contact me with your postal address and zip/post code for a delivery quote. As an example the shipping cost to New York will be $195.00.
Included is the original dCS user manual which provides clear instructions to enable the extensive capabilities to be fully explored. Despite being a professional unit, with far more functionality than the Purcell, it isn't difficult to use. And being a professional unit the mains voltage is user converted between 120 & 240v via a selector on the base of the unit.
