Why it Sounds Amazing

DAC Chip

If you see products marked as “⚙️ DAC Chip”, expect to experience your music with unparalleled clarity, detail, and fidelity, ensuring that every note and nuance is faithfully reproduced for your listening pleasure.

Sampling Rate And Bit Depth

Ever wonder how those ones and zeros on your computer magically transform into the rich melodies that fill your room?


The secret lies in a tiny device called a Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC). Think of it as a translator, taking the digital code of your music and meticulously sculpting it back into a smooth, analog wave that your speakers can understand. But just like a sculptor needs the right tools, achieving audio nirvana with a DAC depends on two key factors: sampling rate and bit depth.


Sampling Rate:

Imagine your favourite song as a complex rollercoaster track. The sampling rate refers to how often the DAC takes measurements of this digital track, measured in kHz (kilohertz) or thousands of times per second. A higher sampling rate, like 96 kHz, is like taking a ton of pictures of the track, capturing every twist and turn with incredible detail. Lower rates, like the standard 44.1 kHz used in CDs, are like taking snapshots at a theme park – fun, but you might miss some of the subtler details that make the ride truly exhilarating.


Bit Depth:

Now, think about the sculptor's tools. Bit depth refers to the precision of each measurement the DAC takes. Imagine the number of colours available to the sculptor. With higher bit depth (e.g., 24 bits compared to 16 bits), each measurement can capture a wider range of values. This allows the DAC to recreate subtler variations in the sound wave, resulting in richer and more nuanced audio. It's like having a broader colour palette for building a more detailed and lifelike sculpture of the sound.


TOPPING UPGRADES ITS BEST-SELLING DAC WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF THE D90 III SABRE

Topping's flagship desktop DAC has returned, setting new standards for audio excellence. Featuring two cutting-edge ES9039SPRO DAC chips, this fully balanced decoder achieves remarkable fidelity with an impressive 135dB SNR and < 0.000045% THD+N. The enhanced Bluetooth 5.1 chip ensures faster and more stable wireless connectivity. Additionally, a newly implemented CPLD effectively reduces jitter, while the inclusion of a 12V trigger facilitates seamless integration with other Topping devices, offering enhanced convenience for audio enthusiasts.

FEATURES TWO DAC CHIPS AND A BRAND NEW I/V CONVERSION CIRCUIT FOR CLEAN AUDIO

At the core of the Topping D90 III Sabre lies a dual-chip configuration featuring two ES9039SPRO chips. This innovative setup allows each audio channel to operate independently, resulting in elevated performance metrics such as a higher Signal-to-Noise Ratio (135dB), an expanded dynamic range, and a notable reduction in distortion (< 0.000045% THD+N). Compared to its predecessor, this dual-chip implementation significantly enhances overall performance. Taking a step further, Topping has incorporated a newly designed I/V conversion circuit for superior audio reproduction. This circuit, with its reduced distortion and noise levels, is not only more efficient but also occupies less space. Engineered to push the boundaries of physics, this circuit maximises the potential of the DAC chip, delivering optimal performance.

A FULL-FLEDGED MQA DECODER REVEALING SONIC MAGIC THAT ARTISTS CREATE IN STUDIOS

MQA, or Master Quality Authenticated, represents an audio codec that undergoes studio approval and authentication. The process initiates with audio capturing and recording, followed by MQA folding the file, a method known as "music origami," making it suitable for streaming. The primary aim is to deliver audio surpassing CD quality on any device and to provide the original master recording experience when coupled with an MQA decoder. With a complete MQA decoder, the Topping D90 III Sabre meticulously unfolds MQA files, ensuring the highest attainable audio quality. This procedure employs precise file and platform-specific DAC compensation and management, unveiling the authentic musical craftsmanship created by artists in recording studios.
