High-End CD transport
CD Transport offers extraordinary audio quality & 24/96 Flac support!
CD Box RS is an ultimate CD transport that gets maximum information from audio discs. Therefore it uses special Sonic Scrambling technology with „Sonic2“ output stage (RJ45). An I²S bus is used to communicate PCM audio data between integrated circuits. The I²S bus separates clock and serial data signals, resulting in significantly lower jitter levels, compared with all other communication principles, that extract the clock signal from the data stream. Sonic Scrambling technology improves linearity in multi-DAC designs significantly. 2 DACs per channel in differential mode are used to reduce DAC related distortion and enhance low level signal linearity for superior conversion. Even subtle details will be available without any audible distortion.
To use Sonic Scrambling technology, it is necessary to connect both RJ45>RJ45 and a BNC>BNC clock cable to DAC Box RS or Pre Box RS Digital from Pro-Ject Audio Systems.
Additionally following digital outputs are provided: AES/EBU, Toslink & coaxial S/PDIF.
Given its ultra-compact size, the OBERON 1 is the smallest addition to the OBERON line-up. The cabinet size enables an optimal balance between inner volume optimised for bass performance, and a compact cabinet design suited for smaller rooms, discreet audio setups or wall mounting.
Like its larger siblings, the OBERON 1 makes use of the oversized 29 mm ultra light-weight soft dome tweeter to handle the highs and detailed mids, while the SMC based 5.25" wood fibre woofer renders the lower midrange and well-timed bass. With the launch of the DALI OBERON loudspeaker series, we have picked the best elements from our current speakers and brought them together in a series that delivers on audio quality, looks and versatility.
The compactness of the OBERON 1 makes it easy to integrate into any room. To achieve a wide dispersion pattern in the listening area, the driver materials and geometry applied in the OBERON 1 have been carefully selected. The same principles have been applied in the design of the crossover.
As result, you will experience a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. This is important as you are rarely seated directly in front of your loudspeakers when listening to music. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion, as these will always be stronger in an on-axis response. This is also the reason why all DALI speakers are not designed to be toed-in.
