Make compressed audio sound brilliant by restoring lost audio fidelity with DSEE HX
New DSEE HX builds on our proprietary DSEE technology, upscaling compressed audio files to a level that's closer to High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the subtleties of the original recording that are lost during the compression process, DSEE HX delivers a rich, studio-quality audio experience for all your music.
Large low-phase noise quartz oscillator precision clock reduces timing jitter
Timing jitter degrades the digital audio signal, creating an unevenness and introduces distortion into the sound. A large, low-phase noise oscillator precision clock provides a timing signal to all the parts of the digital audio system, so each process can be triggered at the right moment.
