Introducing the dCS Rossini Transport
Rossini uses the very latest dCS Digital Processing Platform and Ring DAC technology, originally developed for the flagship Vivaldi series. The Rossini Transport upsamples CD data to DSD, DSD/128 or DXD and transmits the data over the Dual AES/EBU interface. SACDs are played in their native DSD format, again over the Dual AES/EBU interface. Native CD data is available from 3 PCM outputs, as is down-sampled SACD data.
Designed and made in Great Britain to the highest standards, Rossini’s elegant chassis uses aerospace-grade machined aluminium with internal acoustic damping panels to reduce sound-degrading mechanical vibration and magnetic effects. The Rossini CD/SACD Transport mechanism features a 2mm steel frame, cast aluminium disc tray and vibration dampening materials delivering excellent performance in rigidity, vibration resistance, and resonant-free operation.
Rossini utilizes a field-programmable gate array (FPGA), which is a device that can be programmed or reprogrammed to the required functionality after manufacturing. This feature brings improved signal processing and superior flexibility, effectively making the Rossini Transport future-proof. As with all dCS disc Transports, Rossini’s firmware can be easily updated via CD. This lets dCS add new features and improve the performance of Rossini over its lifetime.
