Models : C5 – C6 –C8
The Digital to Analogic Converters analyze and treat the signals coming from the disc reader or a computer source (computer or server). The "Signature" version of C5, C6 and C8 gets internal converter chips supporting PCM formats up to 24 bits and 192 kHz. The "+" version accepts formats up to 32 bits / 384 kHz, and particularly Direct Stream Digital (DSD) formats 64, 128 and 256.
Highlights and design specificities :
Our electronics are 100% made in our own design office, together with all parts of our devices. All the Métronome converters are evaluated by our engineers, first of all for their musical qualities.
According to the type of conversion involved (delta-sigma or dual-mono), we integrate 1 or 2 DAC chips per canal. Lines are fully independent, in order to reduce distorsion. Each line gets its own operational amplifier, which is also a jitter-reduction parameter.
Power supply is one of Métronome know-hows. Based on high-quality toroidal transformers, our PSUs provide separately each functions of the devices (independent regulation lines).
Each device also integrates a specific power filter.
