d1-digital-mk2 reclocker

The d1-digital-mk2 is a new concept of reclocker. It aims at improving the sound of any transport.

"With the reclocker, music sounded more refined, more nuanced, and simply more natural.
I also noticed that instruments had a greater sense of tonal richness and density. It also offers real and easy to hear improvements."
Michael Lavorgna, AUDIOSTREAM (Stereophile)
"The d1-server and its reclocker are absolute key points to get something quite magic at the end." Thierry Nkaoua, Audiophile-Magazine
"the only impression I ever seem to get from totaldac products is pure musical pleasure.
I am sent on a journey through my music, engaged and relaxed with no fatigue or worry."
Sonny Trigg, inearspace
"I must say, this is great !. It is more detailed and everything is natural.
The room's acoustics are much more here, you just get more the feeling of sitting in a concert hall. This thing is a hit!"
Jürgen Saile, HIFIstatement

It is connected to the output of the drive (streamer, CD player, computer with USB, music server).

The d1-digital-mk2 uses the same technologies as the Totaldac DACs, especially the asynchronous fifo memory but the analog outputs have been replaced by digital outputs.
So it has multiple digital inputs and it also has an internal clock which strongly attenuates the jitter of any digital source.
So the d1-digital reclocker can be associated to all available drives.
It can also be used as a USB to AES-EBU (or spdif) converter with very high sound quality.
DSD files (DoP standard) are accepted on the USB, spdif and AES-EBU inputs and then resent in DSD DoP format.
It is supplied by default with a Totaldac live-power external power supply.

It can de-jitter any digital source to get an unexpected better drive from a computer, a music server or a CD transport.
A USB cable length is limited by the USB official specification, so the distance between a computer and a USB DAC is limited. When a d1-digital reclocker is inserted between the computer and the DAC the AES-EBU cable length is almost non limited, so the computer can be placed far from the DAC.
