New DSD option available for QES Labs PAD-2 Mk2 stereo master A-D converter

QES Labs broadens the range of available configuration options for the latest 2019 releases of the PAD-2 Mk2 stereo A/D converter by adding the new DSD64 and DSD128* engine option, on PCM4222 and the fast Xilinx CPLD.

PAD-2 Mk2 features:
  • 2 Channel Stereo Analog to Digital Converter
  • Intended for Mastering, Mixing and Recording
  • Totally passive analog input stage, for an incredibly low noise floor
  • Three independent custom wound toroidal core mains transformers for logic, digital and analog sections
  • 12 independent fully regulated low noise power supply sections for improved clarity and noise free operation
  • Entirely balanced signal route for improved noise rejection
  • High speed low noise custom wound audio transformers with Bessel filter behaviour, for precise transient response, linear phase/constant group delay, natural anti-aliasing
  • Internal input trimming, factory default 0VU/+4dBu: -18dBFS (-14 on request)
  • 20 segment input level bargraph, with overload and sampling rate indication
  • OLED display showing Fs and Digital Filter selections
  • Button controls for Fs, Store settings, External Sync, and digital decimation filter selection
  • Galvanically isolated AES-3 digital output (additional AES output on request)
  • Optional DSD64 and DSD128 outputs, SDIF-3 format, 2x BNC (L, R), WC Out
  • Linear frequency response over the entire audio range and beyond

*DSD outputs in SDIF-3 protocol.

Interesting addition, considering how linear, detailed, and true to the source this converter sounds.
