Funds for the release of an external digital-to-analog Converter AuricSound S7 managed to collect in just a day
On Kickstarter a few days ago, began raising funds for the release of the external digital-to-analog Converter AuricSound S7. Fundraising is going well: marked by authors of the project purpose was achieved in the first days.
The basis of the device is OCTA-core ARM processor in SoC XMOS xCore-Audio U8A-128 and 32-bit DAC ESS SABRE Twin ES9028Q2M. In the base case AuricSound S7 installed on a single chip DAC and amplifier in the embodiment AuricSound S7-T — two, and the AuricSound S7-TB, there is also support for Bluetooth.
The Converter supports MP3, DSD, DSD-IFF and DSF formats, sampling rates from 44.1 kHz to 22,5792 MHz (DSD512), 16-bit, 24 and 32 bits. Frequency response is stated 20-80, 000 Hz, harmonic distortion is not to exceed 0,006%. Built-in amplifier designed for a load impedance 16-300 Ohm balanced output — 32-600 Ohms.
The equipment AuricSound S7 comes with a OLED display with a resolution of 128 x 96 pixels. Used to control the touch of a button. The list of inputs includes coaxial S/PDIF, optical S/PDIF (TOSLINK) and analog 3.5 mm TRS To output an analog signal designed pair of RCA connectors. There are also USB and USB C. Power is supplied from external adapter DC voltage of 12 V.
With dimensions of 190 x 103 x 40 mm device weighs 380 g. the Minimum fee, allowing you to expect to receive AuricSound S7 in October 2017, is approximately $165.
