The new remote control use:
Available keys, to select one Totaldac equipment among two or three using a single remote control:
--number "7": selects the remote control receiver of the streamer/server only
--number "8": selects the remote control receiver of the reclocker only
--number "9": selects the remote control receiver of the DAC only
--number "6": selects the remote control receiver of all Totaldac products
PHASE: can invert the absolute phase of the signal, set to "NORMAL" by default.
EARTH: when "CONNECTED" is selected the signal ground is connected to the earth. When "UNCONNECTED" is selected the signal ground and the earth are isolated. Choose the best configuration to get the best silence from your amplifier or the best sound when listening to music.
DISPLAY: when "ON" is selected the display is always switched on, when "OFF" is selected the display is switched off 10 seconds after the last remote control action.
TREBLE FIR: When "ON" is selected the non-oversampling treble loss is compensated to get a flat frequency response. When "OFF" is selected the DAC is a pure NOS (non-oversampling) DAC with some treble attenuation.
DSD --> PCM: for the reclocker and d1-streamer, set ON or OFF the DSD (DoP) to PCM 176KHz/24 conversion.
Set ON if the DAC which follows the reclocker/streamer is not DSD compatible.
Set OFF if the DAC which follows the reclocker/streamer is DSD compatible. The reclocker/streamer volume control must be set to 0dB to allow to pass the DSD in DoP format.
BASS BW: the optional high pass filter adjustment.
Note: always leave batteries in the remote control.
The bass boost option:
The bass boost option allows to sum a bass channel to the main channel. The bass channel, called CH1, is the output of a low pass filter.
The bass channel is summed to the main channel, called CH3.
Before the summation is made an attenuation is applied to CH1 and CH3.
Next table shows the recommended attenuation so set (from the remote control) for CH1 and CH3 according to the target bass boost level and with the guarantee to avoid the saturation or the digital signal:
The filter frequency is adjustable with 1Hz step.
If for example the frequency is set to 100Hz it means that the boost has its main effect from 0Hz up to 100Hz and then the effect slowly diminishes.
When you switch OFF the bass boost it is better to set "atten CH3" to -1.6dB to automatically avoid any saturation.
USB AUDIO2 driver:
No driver installations are necessary for Windows10, iOS and Linux.
Under older Windows a driver installation is necessary. A specific driver will be provided by e-mail.
Here are the settings recommended for Roon (and quite similar for other softwares):
Totaldac streamer user's guide:
The d1-streamer and DACs with streamer option have a specific user's guide that you can download here:
The previous remote control:
The remote control functions are:
-VOL+ key (indication N°8): increases main volume control
-VOL- key (indication N°5): decreases main volume control
-"on/off" key (indication N°11): switches the DAC ON or OFF, the audio circuits are maintained warm in OFF mode
-"mute" key (indication N°9): mutes all analog outputs
-Numerical keyboard, selects among 4 digital inputs:
--number "1": selects input1 RCA
--number "2": selects input2 XLR
--number "3": selects input3 optical
--number "4": selects input4 USB
-"0" and "-/--" keys: goes to previous or next menu to adjust the phase polarity, earth connection, display on/off and for the digital filters the cut-off frequencies, the digital delays, the relative attenuation of each way...
-PROG+ key (indication N°4): increases the current parameter in the active menu
-PROG- key (indication N°6): increases the current parameter in the active menu
-"teletext" key (indication N°2): stores to memory all current settings
For the active crossovers the other menus are:
DELAY CH1: the delay applied to the bass channel, unit is centimetre. The max delay is 3.4m.
DELAY CH2: the delay applied to the midrange channel, unit is centimetre. The max delay is 3.4m.
DELAY CH3: the delay applied to the treble channel, unit is centimetre. The max delay is 3.4m.
ATTEN CH1: the attenuation of the bass channel, unit is dB, step is 0.2dB.
ATTEN CH2: the attenuation of the midrange channel, unit is dB, step is 0.2dB.
ATTEN CH3: the attenuation of the treble channel, unit is dB, step is 0.2dB.
LPF CH1: low pass filter CH1, the frequency of the bass channel low pass filter.
LPF CH1 slope: the slope of the bass channel low pass filter, adjustable to 6dB/oct, 12dB/oct or 18dB/oct.
HPF CH2: high pass filter CH2, the frequency of the midrange channel high pass filter.
HPF CH2 slope: the slope of the midrange channel high pass filter, adjustable to 6dB/oct, 12dB/oct or 18dB/oct.
LPF CH2: low pass filter CH2, the frequency of the midrange channel low pass filter.
LPF CH2 slope: the slope of the midrange channel low pass filter, adjustable to 6dB/oct, 12dB/oct or 18dB/oct.
HPF CH3: high pass filter CH3, the frequency of the treble channel high pass filter.
HPF CH3 slope: the slope of the treble channel high pass filter, adjustable to 6dB/oct, 12dB/oct or 18dB/oct.
CH3 FILTER: allows to switch ON or OFF the treble channel high pass filter, to pass quickly from an active crossover to a simple DAC (with headphone amplifier).
