Explanation of terms
DSD (Direct-Stream Digital)
One of the audio data recording methods, it is the signal aspect used to store audio signals on a super audio CD, and is Δ-Σ modulated digital audio. It is configured of an array of single bit values at a 2.8 MHz sampling rate.
Sampling involves taking a reading of a sound wave (analog signal) at regular intervals and expressing the height of the wave at each reading in digitized format (producing a digital signal).
The number of readings taken in one second is called the “sampling frequency”. The larger the value, the closer the reproduced sound is to the original.
This is an uncompressed PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) signal. This is the same system used for CD audio but uses 192 kHz, 96 kHz, and 48 kHz sampling frequencies on Blu-ray Disc or DVD and provides higher resolution than CD.
This is an AC resistance value, indicated in Ω (ohms).
Greater power can be obtained when this value is smaller.
Playback with higher fidelity to the source becomes possible, as input audio signals are output by bypassing the audio quality-control circuits (BASS/TREBLE/BALANCE).
This is a function to prevent damage to devices within the power supply when an abnormality such as an overload, excess voltage occurs or over temperature for any reason.
If a malfunction occurs in this unit, the power indicator blinks red and the unit switches to standby mode.
