High-end integrated SA-CD/CD player - High-grade SA-CD/CD drive combined with exquisite disc tray and ultra-quiet disc loading mechanism ensures smooth operation. Innovative MDSD (Multiple Double Speed DSD) digital signal processing circuitry is con gured as moving average lter for straight D/A conversion. Completely separate con guration of transport and processor sections, each equipped with a set of HS-Link, coaxial, and optical connectors. The reference-level separate-type combo DP-800/ DC-801 and the integrated DP-700 with their exclusive mechanism developed in-house by Accuphase have garnered high praise and acclaim the world over. The new DP-600 is positioned as a companion model to the DP-700, benefi ting from its sophisticated know-how, but it is also a high-end integrated SA-CD player in its own right. Extensive listening tests were conducted to ensure optimum reproduction quality. As with all Accuphase players so far, a conscious decision was made not to support multi-channel formats but rather focus on obtaining the ultimate in musical fi delity from two-channel SA-CD music sources. The high-grade SA-CD drive mechanism in the DP-600 is the ultimate tool for extracting the information on SA-CD discs one hundred percent. It not only keeps internal vibrations of rotating parts to a minimum, but is also highly impervious to external vibrations. This ensures that the digital signal remains in a highly pure and accurate state. A dedicated DSP chip controls the digital servo, allowing the digital signal encoded on the SA-CD in DSD (Direct Stream Digital) format to be processed with utmost accuracy. The high-speed access mechanism with its single- lens/twin laser diode combines optimum precision with lightning-swift operation. In the digital processor section, ground-breaking MDSD (Multiple Double Speed DSD) technology is used, with an ultra-high-speed FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and multiple DACs driven in parallel to handle the delayed DSD signal. After D/A conversion, summation of the multiple data results in an ingenious moving-average fi lter circuit that implements straight D/A conversion of the DSD signal. An important characteristic of MDSD is the use of MDS++ D/A converters which keep conversion errors to an absolute minimum. The MDSD circuit acts as a high-cut fi lter that virtually eliminates high-frequency quantization noise. DG-48 connection example The DG-48 can be connected between the transport outputs and digital inputs of the DP-600 (using HS-Link, coaxial, or optical connection). This allows sound field compensation of the signal from the CD transport in the digital domain.

After volume processing, the circuit performs D/A conversion using a highly ingenious moving-average fi lter principle. In the DP-600, this involves five delay devices and six MDS++ type D/A converters. The signal is delayed (shifted) progressively by one clock cycle to produce six signals which are sent to separate D/A converters for direct D/A conversion. The converted signals are then summed. Since conversion errors are kept to an absolute minimum by the use of MDS++ type DACs, the MDSD principle results in a 6-pole high-cut fi lter with perfectly linear phase characteristics.
