RE: Input digital signal's sampling frequency in SA-50?
I spoke with some guy at Esoteric USA "Tom"...he could be mistaken. My computer does not recognize the language of the post(s) - link to which you postsed (http://www.audionet.com.tw...). I presume its Chinese if ".tw" but could be Japanese...
Can you copy and paste here the translation of the appropriate spec
Also Lindermann 820S SACD Player's MSRP is about $21k - a bit out of my budget.
according to this source it should accept 24/192kHz
"Two-channel SACD player, can read SACD, CD, CD-R and CD-RW. Digital Input: RCA × 1 (input frequency of up to 24 bit / 192kHz), TosLink × 1 (input frequency of up to 24 bit / 192kHz), B-type USB × 1 (input frequency of up to 16 bit / 48kHz). "
link to the article translated by google translate
"Technically it's not possible to pass native 24/192 through 1 rca input or 1 toslink input "
Hello Kops - yes, I am familiar with this statement. Only AES or even two ARS can trasfer 192/24. I am not engineer and thus I am unable to argue on merit.
However, I read thi statement many years ago, and since it was not written in bible and in stone and both coaxial and fiber optic may have very wide bandwidth I see no inherent reason why clever engineering and/or change in standards cannot absoultely make it possible.
For support of the above (support is not prove its just that "support" - I advise you to look into Sound Sceince Web Site. Very cleaver engineer builds music servers there (Music Vault). One of these servers "Music Vault 24-192" - can (and you can infer it from its title too) pass 24/192 data via its coaxial output. This one I am planning to use together with DAC part of SACD Player if and then I will find one I like, and .....can afford
P.S I hope I am right in my optimism.
Perrew can you measure the jitter from spdif?
Who will do the resampling and recloking?
I guess top engineers of top brands (dCS, Weiss, Esoteric, Wadia...) choose usb or firewire (along with anti-jitter devices) for hiresolution and these engineers had written history in digital the last years.
Now if this is possible and sounds good it is welcomed by me but not as an ultimate solution soundwise due to jitter-transfer problems.
