Technics Digital Link (Original Digital Signal Transmission)

Some systems use a digital link between source component and pre-amplifier, keeping the digital signal pure as long as possible: Technics Digital Link goes further. It has eliminated the volume control function from the pre-amplifier, and instead transmits the volume control information, together with the audio signal, directly to the power amplifier in digital form. The power amp's jitter reduction circuit reduces any effect of jitter in signal transmission, then performs the volume control immediately before the PWM converter.
This new sound transmission interface, Technics Digital Link, supports audio signals and also eradicates inter-channel effects by transmitting the left and right channel signals separately. Technics Digital Link has achieved an ideal amplifier configuration, minimizing any degradation between the pre-amplifier and the power amp, and resulting in superb stereo separation and reproduction of even the most subtle signals. The result is a more detailed and dynamic sound.

Digital Noise Isolation Architecture

The SU-R1 Network Audio Control Player receives audio signals from various digital content devices, such as NAS, PCs, USB memory devices and digital interfaces. Many of these digital content storage systems were originally designed for use with PCs, so low noise – which is required for pure audio reproduction – was never a main design concern. To handle these often noisy sources, the SU-R1 isolates the interfaces for these media to exclude external electrical interference, and also employs a jitter remover, thus offering clear and stable sound, free from noise and distortion.

Virtual Battery Operation

Virtual Battery Operation removes noise generated by the power supply circuit by using a capacitor to fulfil the function of a battery: during playback, this capacitor provides the power, taking the charging system out of circuit, and preventing supply noise from mixing into the audio signal.
