Scarlatti needs no introduction. The recipient of countless awards across the world for its extraordinary performance, both in terms of objective measurements and the subjective musical experience it provides.
Like all dCS digital front ends Scarlatti possesses the ability to unravel music likeno other – resulting in a performance that sounds sublime.
Scarlatti DAC used state-of-the-art dCS technology including the dCS Ring DAC™ Digital Processing Platform and Clocking System so that, as the hub of a digital audio system, an array of features guarantees amazing performance from any digital source.
Scarlatti Upsampler was designed to act as the hub of a digital audio system. It will transform your listening experience, taking your music collection to levels you have not heard before. Accessing music from any digital source, Scarlatti Upsampler converts the audio from its native sample rate to either DSD (1-bit data at 2.822MS/s) or standard high resolution PCM (24-bit data up to 192kS/s).
Scarlatti Transport uses the TEAC Esoteric VRDS Neo™ mechanism which employs super-rigid construction and a brushless motor with heavy flywheel for stable disc rotation. All signal processing and electronics in the transport have been designed by dCS.
Clocking is vital in a digital audio source because any timing errors that occur in the DAC will be converted directly into errors in the analogue output. dCS DACs can act as the system master clock, but listening tests have shown that there is no substitute for a high-quality, dedicated master clock.
