Esoteric Audio Teac DV-50S DVD/DVDA/CD/SACD universal player [Expired]


no longer for sale

This is an original DV50s, NOT an uprgraded unit. color is in silver finish. I purchased this player (3 players total) from a the original owner who was a dealer for Esoteric in 2007, as new open box, and never used. This is one of my DV-50S players that I bought for my 3rd system in my home, and has seen very little hours on it over the years. I still use 2 other DV50S players in other systems, and it is a great player for both video and as a CD/SACD player. Kept in a child/smoke/pet free environment. it is a late production unit made in mid 2005, (sticker on back panel) right before it was discontinued just after. This player I have is in absolutely perfect condition with no flaws anywhere. I take very good of my equipment and rarely ever move it. The DV-50S has a much better analog circuit than the DV-60, that was a scaled down model that replaced it. The DV-50S can be used as anuniversal player or as a excellent standalone transport capable of beating MANY current more expensive designs. Many prefer the 50S to some of the current esoteric designs, smoother and warmer more analogue like sound in my opinion. The big advantage of using this high grade universal player as your main CD player is so you can also play DVD's just for the audio part. Eric Claptan's Unplugged has a far superior playback than the red book CD's and can also listen in two channel, or multi-channel as well. Please read many of the glowing reviews throughout the web on this universal cdp. You may also notice some of the manufacturers using the DV-50 or DV-50S at the audio shows as there audio source for demoing there products. The DV-50S replaced the original DV-50. The difference is adding a DVI digital video output to the unit in addition to the existing component video, S-video, video outputs. The picture quality with the DVI output is a night and day difference compared to component video signals when used with a monitor that supports either DVI or HDMI. If your monitor uses HDMI, an adapter can be used to adapt the DVI to HDMI. The adapters are fairly cheap and connect to the player so that an HDMI cable can be used instead. Please note that the DVI carries video only. Separate audio cable is needed to handle the audio part to the monitor. The DV-50S is a huge savings compared to the very small improvement over the UX-3Pi model, about half the price. Again, the player has very little use on it and is built to last a life time. Due to the players low hours and in like new condition. is why it's priced a little higher than the average asking price. Retail price was $6000. You will not be disappointed in the condition and the musicality of this player. I accept check/money order (after it clears), paypal plus 3% transfer fee, or if you transfer the funds into your PayPal account first and send payment as personal to avoid the 3% fee, or local pick-up paid cash. Buyer is responsible for shipping cost. US sale ONLY. the player comes with the remote, owners manual, and power cord, and will ship with it's original double box, and then boxed again with lots of packing in between for a sure safe delivery without any issues. Total weight with packing will be about 60 pounds. I ship with FEDEX. I refuse to use UPS for any reason cause of their rough handling. Check my outstanding feedback and buy with confidence. US sale only. With the advent of SACD and DVD-Audio, the environment surrounding audio delivery has changed dramatically. High-end audio fans have been asking for this evolution to higher quality source data for a long time. There has also been pent-up demand for major changes in the playback devices needed for these new formats. The Esoteric DV-50S’ universal player was developed for CD, SACD, DVD-Audio, and DVD-Video. While satisfying the new-generation requests, the DV-50S’ (like other products in the Esoteric series) also makes your existing CDs sound even better. Rather than obsolete your current investment in CD's, the DV-50S enhances this investment through major improvements in Red Book CD playback technologies. By challenging the very limits of each of the disc formats, the DV-50S sets a new standard for digital audio and video reproduction. Not only does the DV-50S accurately reproduce the most intricate details of the recorded material, it delivers all the emotion and soul of the original performance. SUPERIOR 2-CHANNEL AUDIO PERFORMANCE High-Precision 24-bit D/A Converter Systems and RDOT (Refined Digital Output Technology) allow multiple up-conversion functionalilty to generate the highest quality audio reproduction. The DV-50S uses the same high-end components that successfully provided the beautiful and natural sound in the Esoteric D-70 DAC: including a second generation RDOT Algorithm and a FIR (Finite Impulse Response) digital filter that supports sharp high-end sampling. The algorithm and filter enable up-conversion of digital audio data read from a DVD or CD, to a maximum of 1536 kHz for DVD audio/video and 1411.2 kHz for a CD. The up-converted data is processed through a D/A converter whose advanced segmentation method provides excellent handling of dynamic characteristics. The D/A converter uses a 4-DAC configuration for L/R± differential operation, enabling more accurate D/A conversion. RDOT (Refined Digital Output Technology) When music data is recorded for CDs, the frequencies that exceed 20 kHz cannot be reproduced due to limitations of the CD standard sampling frequency. Music however, usually consists of frequency information that far exceeds 20 kHz. The effect of not being able to reproduce this additional information is that the listener cannot experience the most accurate and natural sound. As the solution for recreating sounds above 20 kHz, we use RDOT; a technology that enables interpolation by analogy based on the fluency algorithm. This highly sophisticated RDOT technology uses analogy-based principles to generate all music information likely to occur between data samples. The information is generated from source signals of all sampling frequencies up to 192 kHz, not just the standard CD frequency. As a result, data that exceeds fs/2 is generated. This results in music with natural depth, and listeners can especially feel differences in resolution and reverberation when instrument sounds overlap. The extremely natural timbres and sound fields used to reproduce a live performance are clearly superior. DSD (Direct Stream Digital) mode is used when playing an SACD so no up-conversion is selectable. The DV-50S front panel contains a digital filter mode selector switch and up-conversion frequency indicators. When a disc is played, the digital audio signal read from the disc is re-clocked using a high-precision master clock signal generated on the audio PCB by a voltage controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO). After any jitter caused by transmission within the device is removed, the signal is input to the digital filters and then converted to an analog signal. This process produces extremely stable sound. The DV-50S uses very high slew rate operational amplifiers from National Semiconductor to perform current/voltage conversion on the current outputs from the DA converter IC. For synthesis of audio differential signals and an active low-pass filter, the DV-50S uses operational amps from Analog Devices. These Op Amps are renowned for their exceptional audio performance characteristics. 6-Channel analog outputs support SACD and DVD-Audio multi-channel content. In addition, the built in decoding processors decode all Dolby Digital or DTS signals. This enables the DV-50S to output the highest quality surround sound for all formats. For high-resolution 2-channel audio, the DV-50S provides both balanced XLR outputs and unbalanced RCA outputs. The 2-channel analog outputs are completely separate from the analog signals converted by the 6-channel D/A converter. Video OFF function is provided to shut down the unused video circuitry during pure audio operations. This operation eliminates any unnecessary digital clocking or internal noises improving the purity of the audio reproduction. Video circuits are stopped when a DVD-Audio disc, SACD, or CD is being played. Most audio/visual devices use a switching regulator type power supply. These supplies use high frequency clocks and can radiate noise within neighboring electronic circuits. The DV-50S however, utilizes a cut-core transformer built with carefully selected materials to achieve high-dimensional performance in both sound and video. In addition to eliminating the adverse effects on sound quality from switching noise, this design suppresses noise from components by using Schottky barrier diodes for power circuitry rectifiers. The highest quality components are used throughout the DV-50S to take full advantage of the strength of our precision mechanism and to bring out the full performance of the mechanical casing. All components are hand-chosen, after exhaustive listening and sound tests, to ensure that the components are of the highest quality. The unit itself weighs about 45 pounds unboxed, and is a very rugged chassis design to resist vibration that can affect the sonics of many players.
