If you think that a Hi-End audio system should pay attention to the circuit design of all aspects of the whole machine, it should have its unique circuit design to show Hi-End’s spirit, then Accuphase DC-37 should be able to meet your standard.
Accuphase currently has two DACs, one is the flagship DC-950, and the other is DC-37. There are also two SACD turntables and a CD turntable, which have digital inputs and can also be used as DACs. As far as the Accuphase said, the design of this DC-37 DAC is not simple.
First of all, Accuphase applied the experience and achievements of DC-901 and DP-720 in the previous generation. It is the essence version of high-end models, retaining the most refined design of flagship models and bringing in reasonable simplification with more affordable prices. Moreover, its test report and performance data are very close to that of DC-901. No wonder the original manufacturer said that even if it is used with DP-900, there is no problem.
Secondly, Accuphase knows that the quality of the power supply is the key to the audio system’s sound. Two toroidal transformers are installed inside the DC-37, responsible for the power supply of digital and analog circuits, respectively. DC37 uses customized voltage transformers and giant filter capacitors to ensure the cleanest power supply.
Third, it is equipped with six pairs of digital inputs, including coaxial input and optical input, plus a USB type B and HS-Link connected to its turntable. Accuphase has not released any device with a network streaming function. They believe that network technology is getting development each year. Accuphase does not want users to buy a device, and it will be out of date after two years. Therefore, they never launch their own network streaming equipment. These days, it is really rare for manufacturers to do business but would instead give up the business to others.
Fourth, Accuphase DC-37 has a unique digital conversion circuit, corresponding to PCM can be decoded up to 32bit/384kHz, while DSD can be decoded to 5.6MHz. As far as the specifications are concerned, it is not that outstanding, but what is remarkable is the way it decodes. It uses an ESS Sabre ES9018 32bit Hyperstream DAC chip for each of its left and right channels. The 8-channel circuits of the chip work in parallel to reduce distortion and noise and improve sound quality. That is the technology called MDS++ (Multiple Delta-Sigma).
