Exceptionally High-Performance 32-Bit D/A Converter
The D/A converter for the CD-S2100 is the ES9016 from ESS Technology, Inc. We selected this after careful examination of all points - not only its high precision processing of 32-bit audio, but also the ability to handle large amounts of audio data, strength in the low register and high-quality definition in the high register. Since the built-in D/A converter generates its own master clock, an original jitter elimination function is also included, permitting D/A conversion with extremely low impact of clock jitter. Moreover, an 8-channel D/A converter is housed inside the chip and applies double differential operation using 4-channel D/A converters on the right and left sides, respectively. It delivers exceptional high performance and high-quality signal output with superior signal-to-noise ratio, since it employs an analog signal processing circuit with balanced configuration.
