In the MDS output, the error is very small in relation to the signal.

In the combined output of these multiple converters, conversion errors cancel each other out, resulting in a drastic improvement in all relevant aspects of conver ter performance including accuracy, S/N ratio, dynamic range, linearity, and THD. In the DP-57, two delta sigma type PCM1796 converters (made by Texas Instruments) are driven in parallel. Compared to a single converter, this results in an overall performance improvement by a factor of 1.4 (= √2). As shown in the diagram, the MDS ++ used in the DP-57 features an enhanced current-to-voltage (I/V) converter for processing the D/A converter output current. In combination with voltage summing, this design results in even better stability and top-notch performance. The music emerges from a totally silent background, with breathtaking detail resolution and accurate spatial information. n nn n n MDS type D/A converter principle n n n n n Block diagram of MDS ++ converter in DP-57 n nn n nAssembly with CD transport control cir- cuitry, digital inputs, transport outputs, MDS ++ D/A converter, 3-pole analog filter, balanced/unbalanced analog output circuitry, power supply, etc. n nn n nSupplied remote commander RC-18 Offers a host of functions such as input switching, direct play, program play, repeat, etc. Linearity (digital input vs. analog output)
