artistic fidelity by ACOUSENCE arfi-adc2 Details

* 24 Bit Resolution
* 44.1 to 196 kHz Sampling Rate
* Completely passive analog input stage
* Wordclock out

An extraordinary feature of the arfi-adc is the fact that the input stage is built without any active amplifier stages or transistor circuits. There are only passive filtering elements, and a very high-quality input transformer, between the analog inputs and the AD converter. This unusual design has proven to be musically superior over additional amplification stages, and is certainly a contributing factor to the unusually precise and contoured image of transients, the tonal purity, and the full, round basic sound - as far as the analog signal is so provided, because the arfi-adc2 does not make sound; it does its job, nothing more, nothing less.

The arfi-adc2 is powered by the dedicated arfi-psu power supply unit.
The arfi-psu powers up to four artistic fidelity units.

The arfi-psu has four 6V outputs to 4-pin XLR to power the devices of the arfi series. This is a hybrid concept, a switching power supply for AC/DC conversion followed by linear regulators, separated for each of the four outputs, thus fulfilling the requirements of the current Eco-Design guidelines. Despite this, the quality of the output voltage outdoes most traditional linear power supplies. The careful filtering of the mains connection means, in addition to good starting conditions for the AC/DC conversion, as few adverse effects on the electrical grid as possible.

With our arfi-dac2, you can hear our many years of experience in music production, and thus the sound concept of real instruments and ensembles. Comparisons to the best analog technology and vinyl records have always important to us. So basically, the result is an arfi-adc2 "in reverse". Here, we also see the precisely contoured image of transients, along with tonal purity and a full, round basic sound. Fine musical details, atmosphere and emotions have seldom been so audible, but the important thing is: listening to music is simply an unbelievable pleasure.

A special feature to be mentioned is the master clock input in the same format as the arfi-adc2 masterclock output. This input can be switched to use this as a clocking source. Thus the internal PLL (clock recovery from the digital signal) is avoided and PLL no longer plays a role. The DA converter directly follows the master clock of the oscillator unit in the arfi-adc2.

Another central characteristic in the arfi-dac2 is the total forgoing of any type of active amplification between converter chip and analog output; no transistor, no operation amplifier and no tubes. Instead, eight converter outputs, interconnected with each other in a highly sophisticated way via two high-quality transformers to create an analog stereo signal. In our view, this is the key to music in terms of "artistic fidelity": natural sound, artistically compelling and emotionally moving music playback!
