North Star Design DSD native playback support entry model and "Intenso （ intense ）". Means that its name is "violent"and"strength". It is said that "urge" to mean "Impulso （ Impulso ）" Brother machine model.
Digital Isolators to cut noise from the PC with the USB connection that is attached in the ESS Sabre32 DAC series ES9016 and asynchronous mode "Impulso" and also strong recruitment. Power Division was divided in digital and analogue sections. Shortest signal paths and so simple and clever board layout.
Handed down "Impulso" design philosophy as well as beautiful aluminum machined face North Star Design can be said the front face, the minimum required features compact body with this machine is incredibly unimaginable from the looks of the dense and strong.
Using the ESS Sabre32 DAC series es9046 on DAC chip as well as the higher-end "Impulso". ESS's own development and the adoption of 32 bitHyper-stream patented, Time Domain Jitter Eliminator and （ Digtal-Phase Locked Loop ） DPLL circuit delivers clear sound jitter less. USB input by using asynchronous mode and Texas ISO7640 digital isolator cut strong influx of noise from the PC. An ideal digital transfer. Also, PCM source digital filter change is possible from the settings menu.
Use the LME49860 op achieve low noise sound. Power supply for audio grade toroidal transformer, the digital and analog sections does not interfere each other like separate wiring. Delivers clean power supply. Also, without interfering with circuits in each section were brought to North Star Design know-how to make the most simple and clever base layout is to become the shortest possible signal path prevents signal degradation is considered.
