The new C8 , top end version of the METRONOME TECHNOLOGIE Converters series, has inherited of the most recent developments and proprietary improvements performed by METRONOME TECHNOLOGIE with a very high level of quality achievement.
Main Highlights and Design Features:
The four D/A converters using the best 24 bit/192 kHz technology with 32 bit internal processing permit fast music restitution with clearer and deeper sound.
The upsampler and the D/A converters are fixed on an independent PCB plugged on the main board which permits easy possible upgrade.
Balanced analog outputs are driven with two powerful high end brand Lundahl transformers (Sweden).
The USB type B digital output permits direct connection with a computer (PC and Mac) and accepts high resolution signals such as HD_Master (24bit/192kHz).
Each digital input uses its own Digital Input Receiver for a lower level of jitter.
The analog stage includes four operational amplifiers typically chosen for their sound quality, their fast transitions and exceptional audio quality (very transparent, open & aerial)
The user friendly digital screen indicates the signal frequency of the selected input.
The power supply with individual power transformers and completely independent regulation lines for each critical part of the converter – digital input stage, digital upsampling and processing, converter, analog output – provides an inter-stage EMI/RFI radiation protection to insure a dynamic analog-like sound quality.
