This is an ex-demonstration model used in our hi-fi showroom. It is in excellent condition with no marks to mention. We do not have the original packaging so collection is required. We do not have the manual. Only the mains cable. We can ship but would require purchasing a new box from dCS which will be chargeable.
It is a v2 model and is fully upgraded.
Originally manufactured in 2012. We can offer 1 year warranty on this item.
Built to the highest specification, Debussy features a sleek solid aluminium fascia, high-grade aluminium casing, metal buttons and is powered by dCS electronics. Whether you use CD or a computer as your source, Debussy will resolve every last bit of detail from your music collection, bringing a realism that you have never heard before.
In common with the award-winning Scarlatti, Paganini and Puccini ranges, Debussy uses our proprietary dCS Ring DAC™, which oversamples all incoming data to 5-bits at 2.822 or 3.07MS/s.
Debussy DAC features standard AES3, Dual AES and S/PDIF inputs in addition to the USB 2.0 interface. The digital volume control allows direct connection to a power amplifier, in most cases removing the need for a preamplifier. Maximum output can be either two or six volts to suit different amplifier and loudspeaker combinations. Two filters are provided, offering listeners the choice of linear phase with pre-ringing or non-linear phase without pre-ringing.When connecting a computer source, Debussy DAC operates in asynchronous USB mode in which it synchronises the audio by providing a feedback pipe to the computer, which is effectively locked to the audio device for dramatically lower jitter and superior sound.
The PCM inputs on all dCS DACs are industry-standard AES and S/PDIF interfaces. There should be no difficulty using them with other manufacturers’ equipment, provided it also complies with industry standards.
Debussy can be locked to an external Word Clock signal generated by a dCS Master Clock and this produces a substantial performance improvement.
