dCS Scarlatti Upsampler

$3,999

Scarlatti Upsampler from the experts at dCS capable of improving all your digital media.

Tested and working properly in our lab. Confirmed all outputs are good and all inputs except the dual BNC which we did not have the equipment to test.

In original box with manual.

More from dCS:
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).

Possessing an array of independently selectable digital inputs, upsampling and filter options, Scarlatti Upsampler elevates the performance of Red Book CD from CD players or high resolution audio from digital streamers and servers to a previously unsurpassed level.

dCS pioneered the use of external clocks in digital audio systems and the multi-stage Phase-Locked-Loop (PLL) system used in Scarlatti Upsampler provides supremely accurate control of troublesome jitter from the incoming audio stream.
Scarlatti Upsampler also features an asynchronous USB input which allows high resolution audio to be played from a computer. In this mode the Upsampler synchronises the audio by providing a feedback pipe to the PC or Mac. The computer’s audio stream is effectively clocked by the Upsampler, for dramatically lower jitter.

All Scarlatti products benefit from our ‘soft’ approach to programmable logic that allows new software to be loaded from a dCS update disc or USB to add new features or adapt to changes in digital formats.

The SkyFi Testing Process for DACs:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure that there are no signs of heat stress or damage. Capacitors are checked for telltale signs of predictive failure including bulging, shrunken wrappers, or physical leakage. We also inspect resistors and other passive components for signs of overheating.

After the visual inspection we connect the DAC’s RCA outputs to our Sencore PA81 Power Analyzer which simulates a real world input impedance and allows us to monitor the output on an oscilloscope. We are equipped to test optical, coaxial, and USB inputs at Redbook CD Quality. We start with a test signal to verify signal lock and proper output on both channels. If the DAC has balanced outputs these are also tested at this time. If the DAC has multiple Optical and Coaxial inputs they are all checked for proper lock. USB inputs are tested with a Macbook Pro.

After proper function is verified, we set the DAC up for a listening test to evaluate general audio reproduction quality and monitor for clicks, pops, or any other audible signs of issues related to dropped signal lock or failing audio output stages. We often connect DACs under evaluation to our long term test rig for a long test stint to verify stability under real world operating conditions.
