Chord Electronics BLU MK II CD player/up-scaler:
Widely acclaimed Chord CD player with designer Rob Watts FPGA M-scaler upsampling technology. This innovative design upsamples CD and digital inputs to 706.5/768 khz using a 1 million tap digital filter to almost perfectly reconstruct the original analog signal.
The Blu MK II is the matching piece to Chords' already superb-sounding DAVE DAC and elevates its performance to state of the art, competitive with any other DAC currently on the market. Plus, it can be used with all other DACs in Chord Electronics' DAC family, as well as other brand DACs (Note: DACs not featuring dual BNC digital inputs are able to utilize the BLU MK II upsampling to 384 khz). Accepts DSD and PCM inputs.
