dCS
Founded in Cambridge, UK, by a group of expert electronic engineers, Data Conversion Systems originally designed and manufactured high performance analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analogue converters (DACs) for major telecommunications companies and military agencies, whose primary requirement was technology that delivered state-of-the-art precision, linearity and reliability.

dCS quickly became known for the performance of its converters and so, recognising in the late nineteen eighties that this technology had a key role in music recording and playback, the company decided to concentrate on developing products for the recording industry. While the focus had changed, their commitment to producing systems of unrivalled accuracy had not, and consequently their products were – and still are – used by some of the worlds most successful recording studios and personnel.

dCS Vivaldi Master Clock
dCS Vivaldi Master Clock
Vivaldi Master Clock is a powerful yet simple to use Grade 1 master clock based on our pioneering developments in studio and home audio. Featuring two banks of clock outputs capable of outputting different frequencies, Vivaldi Master Clock uses the latest groundbreaking technology from dCS.

In a digital audio system, samples must be accurate in level and time but jitter, which exists in all digital systems, can result in timing errors in these samples, causing the analogue signal to be reconstructed inaccurately.

dCS Vivaldi CD/SACD Transport
dCS Vivaldi CD/SACD Transport
Vivaldi Transport is designed to extract revelatory levels of detail from both CD and SACD and is the ultimate machine for silver disc replay. All signal processing in Vivaldi Transport is proprietary to dCS.

Vivaldi Transport uses the TEAC Esoteric VRDS Neo™ mechanism which employs super-rigid construction and a brushless motor with heavy flywheel for stable disc rotation.

To enhance the purity of the power supply and isolate the mechanism from the electronics, Vivaldi Transport features a completely new chassis design that has separate power circuits for the digital processing and CD/SACD mechanism sections. This gives near-silent operation.
