New FW released! PCM/DSD Digital Transport System with Proprietary FPGA Architecture: D100 PRO

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

New firmware V1.0.21 was launched, with added AirPlay function, which can transfer any available audio data from iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Mac (request OS X Mountain Lion) to SOUNDAWARE desktop players, (through music services on your iPhone or Mac, such as Spotify and so forth).

Firmware V2.9.12 Download Address

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

As a professional high-fidelity streaming music transport, it offers a very comprehensive range of high-performance digital interfaces and excellent user experience, inlcuding USB, network capabilities input and RCA coaxial, BNC coaxial, AES, optical, IIS&master clock output interface. Meanwhile, IR controller and UPnP / DLNA Apps are available to remote control D100Pro.

 


D100 PRO is completely different from traditional streaming music player design. Its architecture uses a patented 

technology to provide lossless HD music in the purest, and high-fidelity playback process.

Our leading technology architecture is a CPU has the extremely rich interfaces and excellent interactive experience, 
while there are special FPGA (ASIC) chip with low latency, high stability, customized features and isolated power supply which can make the audio process more precise.

The benefits of this proprietary architecture (Click to show)

1) It works like the traditional CPU player which has rich peripheral interfaces and powerful control capabilities to support a variety of external storage devices, including network storage, SD, HDD . It also supports infrared remote control and UPnP / DLNA to provide users with perfect experience.

2) FPGA (Audio DSP) is responsible for handing of music data and clock. Isolated and fine power supply, low latency (<10ns), strong stability (1 PS), fully meet the most demanding audio processing, and perfectly support 32bit 384khz audio processing.

3) FPGA (Audio DSP) uses a FIFO (First In First Out) super high-speed asynchronous buffering technology, coupled

with the high-speed near-real-time CPU processing interface. Jitter caused by the peripheral interfaces can be

completely isolated so that any interface can reach the same good playback effect.


4) Dual low-noise, low-jitter clock input, based on the original clock driver decoding for 44.1K, 48K octave audio

frequency, are to provide themost accurate and most direct decoding process.


5) The direct synthesis drive technology of SPDIF clock and data, to eliminate the jitter caused by secondary process during IIS to SPDIF.

6) Powerful dual-chip processing capabilities and master all the technical details of the underlying. 

Perfectly support for industry common music formats. Excellent handling experience, and rich interfaces.

Note: D100 PRO does not include SATA, Wi-Fi, while only supports 32bit, 192 kHz.


D100 PRO is SOUNDAWARE’s second generation product, based on the same architecture of A100 digital output section, for up to a year of R & D investment. Relative to the acclaimed A100 digital output section,D100 PRO has comprehensive and grades improved not only on the sound quality, but also on the whole aspects of the product. This is definitely a comprehensive upgrade, such as redesigned firmware, improved IR controller, UPnP/DLNA support, the interface materials upgrade, and so on.

On the HIFI Headphone & Digital Audio Fair in Guangzhou, D100 PRO also attracted many audiophiles.

 

 

 

 

PS: the last headphone must have a long life, since its old ancient appearance. haha……:beyersmile:

Another audition event held in Shanghai. Obviously, those audiophiles are older users, who have many enthusiastic to listen to our D100PRO.

Besides A280, audio desktop player is also welcom.:beerchug:

Our D100PRO was in 2015 Guang Zhou AV Fair, matched with Hilo DA and a headphone amp.. As our high-class audio transform system, D100Pro attracted many audiophilers.

Is it possible in the next firmware to add the following features?

1. Set the maximum sample rate (some DACs are only capable of 96/24 when connected to coax or BNC.
2. DSD conversion to PCM.

And don't forget the Android controller 😀

Thanks.

Arnold

Hi Arnold,

Thanks for your advice.

Will add DSD conversion to PCM, but not next firmware. And our own android controller will need much time to come out.

Hi Mary.

Thanks for considering my suggestions. How about the re-sampling option?

We are also discussing D100 Pro in another forum and I hope more enthusiasts will discover the benefits of a good music transport over general purpose PC/Mac USB.

Could you please link to the forum (if it's within Head-Fi)?  I would be curious to explore this as my home transport.

Cheers and Thanks!:beerchug:

Yeah, will consider to add the option of maximum sampling rate.
