Chord Electronics has added DSD 64 file playback over ethernet to its flagship network music player, the DSX1000.Chord_DSX_1000_on_WHT

The DSX1000 now includes DSD 64 over ethernet functionality without any increase to the retail price (£7,500). In addition, existing owners can get the upgrade for free via the internet, with a simple push-button menu option from the unit’s display screen.

The implementation of DSD 64 into the DSX1000 enables audiophiles to access an emerging world of high-resolution material in addition to 24-bit/192kHz PCM media. The DSX1000 decodes the incoming digital data stream using Chord Electronics’ proprietary DAC technology. The latest-generation Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) architecture found inside the DSX1000, is the same advanced technology used in Chord Electronics’ flagship DAC, the QBD76 HDSD, and the range-topping Red Reference MkIII CD player.

The FPGA handles all the digital data decoding, clocking, WTA filtering and the 5th generation Pulse Array DAC. The Pulse Array DAC has been further complimented with an enhanced power supply design and layout.

The player also boasts both volume-controlled and line-level analogue outputs which feature both balanced XLR and RCA phono connections. The network connection is via a fixed-wired ethernet port due to the bandwidth limitations of Wi-Fi for 24/192kHz support (ethernet-over-mains connections can also be used if required).

The DSX10000 has a full-colour 3.5-inch TFT front-panel display showing album artwork, set up options etc. and conventional control is via a front-panel cursor button that illuminates depending on the button pressed. Remote control is also available.

The DSX1000 is available now priced at £7,500 (standard finish); £7,830 (nickel).
