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.

MULTI-FUNCTION POWER AMPLIFIER EMBEDDED WITH NFCA HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER AND MERUS CLASS D AMPLIFIER TO DELIVER PRISTINE AUDIO

TOPPING has risen to the ultimate levels of Hi-Fidelity audio with the MX5. The engineers are not playing around when they say "Multi-Function." TOPPING has put two amplifiers into this one unit: an NFCA headphone amplifier that outputs on the front plate and a Merus Class-D power amplifier that outputs on the back. The MX5 has an NFCA circuit optimised for this unit with ultra-low noise and distortion. It pairs with high-sensitivity IEMs and power-hungry high-impedance headphones perfectly. With the help of an Infineon Merus Class D amplifier, the MX5 can output 70W x2 under a 4Ω load with 10% distortion, and 55W x2 under a 4Ω load with 1% distortion. Under an 8Ω load, the MX5 can output 42W x2 with 10% distortion or 35W x2 with 1% distortion. You won't have an issue driving your speakers, studio monitors or high-end tower speakers with the Merus Class D amplifier at your service.

AUTO ON/OFF FUNCTIONALITY WITH BUILT-IN EQ AND 2-STEP GAIN SETTING

All inputs on the MX5 include an Auto On/Off functionality. The unit turns on when a valid signal is detected. When a legitimate signal is lost, the machine shuts down (goes into standby mode) after a certain amount of time has passed. MX5 provides three sensitivity choices for analogue signals with varying intensities to ensure that the audio signal is recognised. Digital signal detection is enabled, and analogue signal detection is disabled by default. When the digital input signal is invalid, the automated shutdown wait time is one minute. The shutdown wait time is set to 10 minutes. The MX5 provides adjustable treble and bass functionality from -10dB to +10dB to suit your preference. The power and headphone amplifiers on the MX5 have two-step gain adjustments to respond to input sources of varying strengths which can also be adjusted via remote control.
