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.


PRESENTING THE E70 VELVET, AN EVOLUTIONARY UPGRADE TO THE E70

TOPPING has been the pioneer in producing some of the cleanest and distortion-free DACs. Their line-up of DACs like the E30, E30 II, D50S, D30 Pro, and E50 have all been well-received and widely accepted in the audiophile community. Their entire line-up of DACs is clean and precise, with spectacular digital-to-analogue conversion capabilities. To improve TOPPING wanted; to create something incredibly sensational while maintaining the characteristics of their earlier generations of DACs. This design aspect led to the birth of the TOPPING E70 Velvet, a fully balanced and Hi-Res certified Desktop DAC. The primary update with the E70 Velvet over the OG E70 is the update in the DAC chipset. From the ESS Sabre flagship ES9028PRO on the E70 OG model, TOPPING has jumped back into the world of rich AKM DACs. The E70 Velvet hosts the flagship AK4499EX + AK4191 AKM DAC chipset in its circuitry. It also hosts an XMOS XU316 USB processor that allows you to play Hi-Res files and supports decoding up to 32-bit/768kHz PCM and Native DSD512 audio signals. The E70 Velvet also includes Bluetooth 5.1 support to save you from the inconvenience of cables. When used wirelessly or "wired," the TOPPING E70 Velvet is a versatile, Hi-Res-certified device that offers clean audio reproduction.

EXPERIENCE PURE SONIC DELIVERY WIRED OR WIRELESSLY WITH USB AND BLUETOOTH SUPPORT

With the introduction of wireless technology, the audio industry has grown by leaps and bounds. Earlier products had wireless functionality, but they did not sound great. TOPPING engineers considered this aspect and have designed the E70 Velvet to incorporate a QCC5125 chipset enabling Bluetooth 5.1 support. The E70 Velvet has the certification of Hi-Res Audio Wireless & LDAC and supports Bluetooth codecs like LDAC (24bit96kHz), aptX Adaptive, aptX HD, aptX LL, aptX, AAC, and SBC. To get even better sound quality from Bluetooth, TOPPING engineers abandoned the built-in DAC of QCC5125 while connecting its digital signal to AK4499EX to decode. For you to use the E70 Velvet in wired mode, "TOPPING" has incorporated the newest XMOS XU316 chipset. The USB hardware based on the newest XMOS XU316 and Thesycon custom driver (applicable to Windows, other systems are plug-and-play) makes the E70 Velvet stable and reliable. With; USB IN E70 Velvet supports up to 44.1kHz-768kHz/16bit-32bit PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) and Native DSD64-DSD512 (Direct Stream Digital). It also supports DSD(DoP) DSD64-DSD256 (DSD Over PCM). With COAX/OPT-IN, it supports PCM up to 44.1kHz-192kHz/16bit-24bit. The Optical and Coaxial input of E70 supports up to PCM 24-bit 192kHz, which is suitable for digital turntables, disk players, set-top boxes, and gaming consoles.
LDAC

NOTE: USB input of E70 Velvet has a wide range of compatibility: Windows 10, Windows 11, MAC, Linux, iOS, and Android plug-and-play. Only for Windows ASIO applications; you need to install the driver and set it up.

DOUBLES-UP AS A PREAMPLIFIER FUSED WITH A 12V TRIGGER INTERFACE

In addition to the DAC mode with a fixed output level, the E70 Velvet also has a DAC + preamplifier mode. In this mode, you can control the output volume from -99dB to 0dB by the knob or remote control. This design provides greater convenience when connected to a power amplifier or monitor speakers. The TOPPING E70 Velvet also hosts a 12V Trigger interface. The 12V Trigger interface on the E70 Velvet can be configured for active control (Trigger out) or passive control (Trigger in). With only one easy-to-obtain 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable, the E70 Velvet can be turned on and off synchronously with other devices equipped with a 12V Trigger interface. With this setup, you can connect E70 Velvet to the TOPPING L70 professional-grade headphone amplifier and form your desktop audio chain. TOPPING has also kept the THD+N of the E70 Velvet lower than 0.00006% (A-weighted), enabling the music to be accurate in every detail.

EQUIPPED WITH A REMOTE WITH SELECTABLE OUTPUTS AND AUTO ON/OFF FUNCTIONALITY, MAKING IT IDEAL FOR THE L70

TOPPING E70 Velvet has a balanced XLR output and single-ended RCA output. You can choose "XLR only", "RCA only", or "XLR+RCA" output for different applications. Additionally, TOPPING has added the Auto On/Off functionality to the E70 Velvet, which will turn ON and set to the input where the signal is valid automatically. When E70 Velvet's selection is not "valid" for 1 minute, E70 Velvet will turn OFF automatically. TOPPING was on the spree of designing the E70 Velvet to be the most versatile device and has included a fully functional remote for you to have; control over the device from the comfort of your couch. The E70 Velvet has USB, Coaxial, Optical, USB, and Bluetooth, as inputs and selectable RCA & XLR outputs. The engineers at TOPPING understood that in addition to the more versatile XLR 4V and RCA 2V outputs, there are also extensive needs for XLR 5V and RCA 2.5V. When XLR 4V and RCA 2V are selected, more devices can be adapted when XLR 5V and RCA 2.5V are enabled; the performance improves by leaps and bounds with these functionalities. To get you started TOPPING has also designed their versatile headphone amplifier, the L70, to be a perfect match for the E70 Velvet. The TOPPING L70 is suitable for almost all kinds of headphones. The TOPPING "E70 Velvet" and "L70" can be switched ON and OFF through the 12V Trigger interface. Also, the L70 can be synchronised with the automatic or manual ON/OFF of the E70 Velvet.

Great DAC to start Hi-fi journey

Added the dac between macbook and active nearfield speakers. Very revealing. Definitely a large improvement over mac's inbuilt dac. Well rounded bass, warmth in the highs. Excellent staging and decent instrument separation and imaging. I had initially got the Topping Dx3+. It wasn't a bad dac but found it a little light on bass and tinny sound. So returned it and got the Velvet. Very happy with the purchase.

Hey there, thank you for the great review and ratings! So delighted that you are loving your purchase. Hope you had a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!
