Note: This unit does not upgrade the u-clock spidf signals to the RCA inputs to DSD. I have been told by the factorty that this can be repaired for approximately $300. I have elected not to have the repair done because I don't notice much difference when CDs are upgraded to DSD. I have reduced the price to about $1,000 less than charged for other used Puccini Players to account for this.
Please see my other add for the Puccini U-Clock, sold separately. Does not include the Stillpoint feet.
DCS Puccini Player
Built to the highest specification, Puccini features a sleek, solid aluminium fascia, high grade aluminium casing, metal buttons and a smooth transport mechanism. Whether in CD, SACD or DAC mode, Puccini will extract every last bit of detail from your music, bringing a realism to the experience that you have never heard before.
In common with the Scarlatti and Paganini ranges, Puccini uses our proprietary DSD signal processing and dCS Ring DAC™. When playing a CD or a source via the digital inputs, Puccini can upsample conventional PCM to DSD and offers the choice between PCM or DSD playback.
A number of optimised DSP filter options elevate the performance further and allow listeners to use Puccini as a standalone DAC or the ultimate one-box CD/SACD player.
Puccini sets the performance standard for single-box CD/SACD players and DACs by optimising key dCS technologies in one stunning chassis. It also features a digital volume control (allowing you to connect directly to a power amplifier), as well as two digital inputs so other digital sources in your system can benefit from the onboard dCS Ring DAC™. A precision VCXO clock generator is housed in Puccini, and this can also be synchronised to an external master clock to further reduce jitter and improve performance.
