Product Information

A new Jewel
Premium line of Styleaudio started with PERIDOT, Jewel series.
The PERIDOT facelift three years there are a number of reasons took some time.
Especially the big reason is supply problems due to personal circumstances of Styleaudio's representative and North Kanto great earthquake.
But the return to representative and supply parts and solutions, can deliver the Jewel series again,.
The restoration work which is Jewel series CARAT-PERIDOT2 premium line of Styleaudio.

Styleaudio started in Carat-UD1 and develop top models CARAT-HD1 and HD1V, drew the way PC audio applications.
The HD1 and HD1V PC succeeded in significantly improving was said to sound traditional personal computer audio quality. To enjoy high quality audio not only quality, well placed for easy to use, just connect with a USB cable and PC until it had edges with a PCs audio shop, PC users but not widely accepted.
Recognized quality and began to put to the audio shop Styleaudio CARAT is recognized as audio device, changing the word PC audio from PC sound, established the genre of PC-Fi, USB-DAC.
* High quality music using a PC, 'PC-Fi' is a registered trademark of Styleaudio.

In 2008, Styleaudio CARAT series followed by CARAT-UD1, CARAT-HD1, CARAT-HD 1 V was born top models.

CARAT, Jewel
Premium line of CARAT, Jewel series.
And PERIDOT's Jewel's first.
Is the monumental model rather than just USB controller controller chip, and additional featuring dedicated audio DAC chip, succeeded in further high-quality sound.
Also widely popular and widely adopted configuration with the DAC, plus USB controller now has adopted in this size and price range of Styleaudio is first and you.
First Jewel dedicated audio DAC, and built a powerful headphone amplifier, CARAT-PERIDOT began a record-breaking hit Japan.

After 3 years

PERIDOT also said that the Memorial monumental model on sale 3 years, Styleaudio products company during this time from residents who gathered opinions of almost developed, all to reflect.
Regardless of parts used in the specs on the numbers or brand names and find out the answer repeated trial and listen only. By supporting Styleaudio sound and cost-effective.

Hi-Fi Audio USB-DAC & Headphone Amp
CARAT premium line, Jewel series PERIDOT2, PERIDOT was launched in 2008 to 2011 facelift.
If you look at just the model name, seems simple and a worthy successor to the previous work.
But premium line models appear after 3 years from the launch of the PERIDOT has changed dramatically.

USB type a, 96 k
USB input in the PERIDOT was up to 16Bit/48kHz maximum 24Bit/96kHz response.

Optical input for 192 k
Equipment can be played on CD players as well as more than PCs, DVD players and HD recorders such as 44.1 k frequency spread.
At PERIDOT could only USB input, PERIDOT2 responded to the optical input.
Optical connection is standard on the 96 k is to adopt Toshiba's high quality terminal for the 192 k optical input.
Is the re-appearance of illuminated most of the basic components of the product had been adopted only in advanced aircraft.

* PERIDOT ( Peridot)
August birthstone. Symbolizing conjugal happiness, peace and love.
Decorate the shrine of the three MAGI in that shine day and remains in dark is called evening Emerald, in the Cologne Cathedral.
Stone and stone of the Sun in ancient Egypt Sun that special present, also found in meteorites.

Analog circuit
Is easy to put on where design and size, but condensed two analog circuits.
First, the DAC circuit as USB-DAC do fixed output from the RCA terminals above all important high-end Burr Brown OPAMP, OPA2604 buffer constructed by has.

Headphone amplifier
And headphone amplifier is called analog circuitry for another characteristic of PERIDOT2.
Includes PERIDOT configuration is different, that Texas Instruments Inc. TPA6120A2 SNR at 120 dB, dynamic range is 120 dB or more in a no sound quality headphone amp.
Of course employ Styleaudio Inc. became the issue, including OS-con, WIMA capacitors went through many tests and listen to by matching the circuit around Nice headphones output.
PERIDOT also powerful headphone amplifier could in PERIDOT2 impedance 600 Ω headphones even potential fully pull the drive.
High accuracy clock
Precision clock generator affects sound quality. And a lot of the clock generator changes depending on the temperature, he will.
In the environment, temperature difference between night and day is fierce and the four seasons in Japan, high-precision clock cannot ignore precision changes due to temperature change.
Also popularized the clock called the TCXO (temperature-compensated crystal oscillator) so far, had not employed only in some of the high-quality audio equipment and in this class of Styleaudio is first and you.
PERIDOT2 is only one-millionth 1 ppm parts-par-ミリオン is equipped with a high-precision clock does not allow changes in temperature.

Power supply
Their circuit power DAC, headphone amplifier circuit is good or poor power supply.
Styleaudio is CARAT-UD1, have accumulated the know-how of the mini-DAC and mini headphone amp.
PERIDOT2 is a circuit configuration across multiple, stabilized power supply adequate supply to each circuit.
Gold-plated are designed to further protect the signal traces.

Design over price, and above all [sound]
Say the entry model PERIDOT2 SAPPHIRE, TOPAZ and Jewel series followed no competitors are in the same price range as a USB audio device isn't too much.

-Clock the TCXO.
• Burr-Brown DAC.
-Digital receiver CIRRUS LOGIC's latest.
• Burr-Brown OPAMP.
-Texas Instruments headphone amplifier.
-Toshiba's TosLink Jack.
-Volume of WIMA, VishayDale, silver mica, Japan's Sanyo OS-con, Alps, NAIS ( the electric works, Panasonic.
• Use double gold-plated RCA and headphone jack.
-Deterioration and noise protection for the Board to 24 K menu-key processing.
And the custom-made ノイズコア powered by USB cable and AC adapter-.
-Double original brass insulator.

These are the only chose a repeat audition as nowhere to achieve high-quality sound when the end result.
Only purpose is sound.
As a result, these parts is a PERIDOT2 circuit.
And not in the Styleaudio can deliver at this price its crystal and Jewel.
* Is a listening room of Styleaudio headquarters. Compared to many high-quality audio machines, engaged in manufacture of products second to none in quality possible even in small.
