Resonessence Labs have today announced that DSD playback capabilities are now available on their flagship product Invicta, which Hifi Pig reviewed here and which won our Recommended Award. Units of the Invicta that ship after the 14th January 2013 will be equipped with Version 4.0.0 of the company’s software and this includes DSD playback over USB and via the on-board SD card reader. Existing users may download version 4.0.0 via Resonessence’s website after this date. In addition to DSD the latest software upgrade includes a number of new features most of which have been implemented following feedback and requests from customers.
DSD playback capabilities follow a long list of new features that have been added to Invicta since it’s release in 2011. Earlier updates included FLAC playback capabilities via the SD card reader, support for SDXC Card formats and the addition of 7 user selectable filter options. The next software release, which is scheduled for later this month, will include on screen Asian character display for users in the Far East and the option of Balanced Headphone outputs.
