by Lauren Young on Jun 15, 2021
Since D90 has been sold out, many people are wondering when will the latest version be ready for the market. We are exicted to announce that D90SE is available in our store now. It is a SE version with many of orginal D90’s features like MQA supported, fully balanced, Bluetooth 5.0 LDAC supported, multiple options for inputs and outputs.
Equipped with the ES9038PRO chip and second-gen 16-core XMOS processor, D90SE not only support MQA decoding via USB this time, Coaxial, Optical and AES also support full MQA decode including renderer, MQA, MQA studio. And even better THD+N performance of less than 0.00005% at 1kHz. D90SE has a price tage with USD$ 899.00, and we also provide combo options with the matching A90.
D90SE has the certification of Hi-Res Audio Wire-less and LDAC. It uses CSR8675 chipset to support LDAC/AAC/SBC/APTX/APTX -LL/APTX-HD protocol. To get even better sound quality from Bluetooth, we abandon the built-in DAC of CSR8675 and connect it's digital signal to ES9038PRO to decode.
When there is a better interface, you can use the HDMI cable to directly send the IIS signal into the D90SE's ESS9038PRO for better decode. IIS input can support up to PCM32bit768kHz & DSD1024native. The IIS input provides phase settings. DSD channel settings, and DSD indicator pin selection settings, which are compatible with most digital interfaces on the market that use the HDMI interface to output IS signals.
Selectable output of D90SE, choose XLR only, RCA only, or XLR+RCA to run the signal to two different amps at the same time, such as a solid state and a tube amp. No more plugging and unplugging cables every time you want to switch from one amp to the other. D90SE also adds different options to meet a wider range of needs. When XLR 4V and RCA 2V are selected， more devices can be adapted; when XLR 5V and RCA 2.5V are selected, the performance will be pushed from extreme to more extreme.
In addition to the DAC mode with a fixed output level, the D90SE also has a DAC+ preamplifier mode. In this mode, you can control the output volume on the front panel or at the remote control. This will provide great convenience when connected to a power amplifier or monitor speakers. And also help you leave the budget of a preamplifier.
