DCS Elgar Plus IEEE1394 DAC + DCS Purcell Upsampler Without box, with remote control Elgar Plus - the most perfect DAC 24/192 and DSD Purcell - the converter of digit capacity and frequency of a signal to 192 kHz and 24 bits An uncompromising system for playing the right sound. I can sell a sound card with which you can listen to Hi-Res files on your computer, including DSD. I can sell all the cables to the inputs / outputs. This kit was bought for $ 24,000. The kit was rarely used to demonstrate this system. The state can be seen in the photo, worked few, not even warmed up. about Elgar Plus is a reference DAC released in 2000. with a retail of $ 19000. The dCS Elgar Plus is derived from dCS's award-winning Elgar, the world's first 24/96 and 24/192 audiophile DAC. Elgar Plus offers many improvements over the standard Elgar, including the ability to handle DSD from IEEE 1394 or SDIF-2 interfaces, the ability to slave to a World Clock or act as a Master Clock, a digital output, and a substantially expanded Function Menu. All dCS DACs feature patented dCS Ring DAC technology, which unveils the intricate low- level musical detail that is dCS' hallmark.

Weight: 26.4 lbs About dCS Purcell is a reference digital-to-digital converter released in 2000. with a retail of $ 5000. signal frequency converter The appearance in January 1999 of dCS Purcell - the first high-precision re-sampler, designed specifically for record buffs, was an event. Both digital processing hardware and Purcell software are developed by dCS, which allows us to upgrade the device, improving its functionality and characteristics. The newest version of Purcell can not only increase the sampling rate and signal width of digital audio sources (CD and DVD players, digital radio receivers) to 192 kHz and 24 bits. The digital-to-analog conversion of a high sampling rate signal offers the following advantages:
- improved dynamics;
- increases the width and depth of the sound stage;
- more accurately reproduced bass;
- improved resolution of parts;
- the sound becomes more free and natural.
These are distinct improvements, clearly felt by even inexperienced listeners. Such an effect may seem implausible and contrary to common sense, but over the past 5 years we have successfully demonstrated this technique to thousands of amazed visitors to exhibitions around the world, using various amplifiers and acoustic systems. The reaction was very different: from the amazed silence that followed the beat of the jaws that fell to the floor, to a complete daze, which deprived of the ability to ask questions about what was just heard. Imagine that you have installed a new, higher quality pickup head on your turntable. You play the same records, but each disc is revealed much more fully than before. In the same way, Purcell gives you the opportunity to hear familiar works of music in a new way. Specifications of dCS Purcell - 24/192 - Digital Upsampler
