Network music player is a new style of audio. By using network player, you can enjoy sound sources stored on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) or Streaming Services, using a tablet device as a remote control, just like a Juke Box. You can easily search tracks by genre, artist name, etc. You can also enjoy viewing album art on the screen of your tablet device. You can check a track title, an album name, and an artist name on your tablet’s screen.
Network player is truly the next-generation of audio, with high sound quality, high reliability and easy operation.
The SFORZATO network player plays not only high-resolution PCM, but also DSD. It plays all high-quality sources with outstanding sound quality. All you do is choose the tracks on your tablet. After that, just sit back and enjoy.
■ Roon Ready
DSP-07EX is Roon Ready device. You can enjoy Roon with the DSP-07EX. In addition, it can be used as UPnP / DLNA network player and also as USB DAC.
■ ES9038Pro for D/A conversion
Twin left and right ES9038Pro are used for D/A conversion. The ESS DAC no longer relies on internal jitter removal, running in perfect sync with signal input. The high-fidelity clock and scrupulously arranged clock wiring and architecture ensure perfectly synchronized, jitter-free audio.
■ SFP for LAN
LAN input is not conventional RJ-45 connector but SFP. You can select various type of SFP modules for your LAN environment. Using optical fiber type SFP module, DSP-05EX can be connected via optical fiber LAN. Fiber eliminates electrical connection to noisy computer network. Of course, cupper LAN cable can be used with RJ-45 type SFP module.
■ External clock
The unit features no internal clock generator and is driven by 10MHz external input. External clock generator (TCXO) with outstanding low phase noise (120dBc/Hz @ 10Hz) comes with the DSP-07EX. If you wish to enjoy still further fidelity, PMC series give perfect performance for the DSP-07EX.
■ Noise suppression
Using a multi-layer circuit board with a wide top/bottom grand plane allows the majority of digital signals to be arrayed within the mid-layers. Heavy shielding reduces noise to the utmost. Non-magnetic noise absorbing sheets and shield casing cover noise generating components like the CPU, which provides network connectivity, and the clock circuit area, achieving robust noise suppression.
■ Streaming Service
DSP-07EX supports TIDA and Qobuz streaming services. Using dedicated control application software Taktina, you can access streaming services. Taktina is free application and is available for iOS and Android.
■ Supported formats
PMC: 44.1kHz – 768kHz 16/24/32bit (fixed / float) AIFF, WAV, FLAC, ALAC
DSD: DSD64/128/256/512 (2.8MHz, 5.6MHz, 11.2MHz, 22.5MHz) 1bit dsf, diff
Gapless playback is supported in all formats.
■ Software updates
The digital controller is driven by an ARM11 microcomputer and DSP. Network-based software updates allow your device to always enjoy the latest features and functionality – this means our products continue to evolve even after you’ve purchased them.
