dCS Vivaldi One





  • dCS proudly announces Vivaldi One –a limited edition digital music player specially designed to mark the company’s thirtieth anniversary. Limited to just 250 uniquely numbered pieces, it puts an integral CD/SACD transport alongside the latest dCS Ring DAC in a single box, together with state-of-the-art network streaming functionality. When listening to music through a Vivaldi One, listeners are immediately struck by its natural musicality and faithfulness to the original recording. It delivers a powerful and visceral sound yet is highly transparent, making for a musical experience of breath-taking clarity and emotional intensity.Pushing the boundaries of what is possible with digital replay Vivaldi One is a single box CD/SACD and Network Player that supports music from any digital source via USB, AES, S/PDIF inputs in addition to streaming audio via its network input. An integral CD/SACD mechanism is used for CD/SACD playback.

    At the core of Vivaldi One is the dCS digital processing platform, a high performance network streaming section and the latest generation dCS Ring DAC™. The dCS Ring DAC™ is a unique digital converter that combines exceptional linearity with high speed operation enabling it to deliver true 24-bit performance even at low signal levels. The latest generation Ring DAC™ incorporates a number of advances that have resulted in enhanced dynamic range, reduced jitter, improved channel separation and greatly improved musical realism.The digital processing platform in Vivaldi One is based around Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and a microcontroller system. Using the same platform as the flagship Vivaldi series, Vivaldi One is state-of-the-art, delivering unmatched sonic and measured performance.

    The multi-stage Phase-Locked-Loop (PLL) system sets world-beating standards for accuracy and control of jitter from the incoming audio stream. Vivaldi One also supports the dCS auto clocking architecture which is simple to set up, minimises jitter and improves sound quality.For CD/SACD playback Vivaldi One uses the TEAC Esoteric VRDS Neo™ mechanism, which employs super-rigid construction and a brushless motor with heavy flywheel for stable disc rotation. CD data can be upsampled to DXD or DSD 64/128, extracting revelatory detail from both CD and SACD.Vivaldi One’s network capability and control app lets listeners manage their playback from any source in an elegantly simple way.

    It features built-in Roon Ready™, TIDAL™, Apple Airplay™ and Spotify Connect™ functionality. Streaming audio is unparalleled in terms of processing power and jitter performance, and currently runs at up to 24-bit, 384kS/s and DSD 64/128, supporting all major lossless codecs (including MQA™), plus DSD in DoP format and native DSD.Designed and made in Great Britain with superlative, cost-no-object quality and finish, Vivaldi One’s elegant chassis uses aerospace-grade machined aluminium with internal acoustic damping panels to reduce sound-degrading mechanical vibration and magnetic effects. Vivaldi One firmware is easily updated via CD, USB or online. This lets dCS add new features and improve system performance over its lifetime.

  • 之前一位朋友这样跟我说,买得起好机子的人谁没事在网上认真写文章啊,也就hat这种比较闲的了233。其实我也并不太闲,但是帖子坑太久也不好,anyway先更新一点东西。

    关于vivaldi one,或者说,不需要咸菜版本的vivaldi,其实就是one box版本的dcs vivaldi。偶然会出现网上有些人说这是升级版的vivaldi,我得在这里说这是百分之一万的误区。

    hat在日本的展会曾经就类似的问题请教过Teac工程师,为什么,Esoteric这么好事要把旗舰解码器做成mono解码器呢,一直以来在我看来这非常“不聪明”。这也是为什么你们能够看到两年前hat时不时会黑二嫂这个mono解码器简直不知所谓,但是人是会学习进步的,有时候你想不通的东西,其实就是自己无知而已。工程师告诉hat的原因这里我简单说一下:因为一体机其实就是在竞争资源。这就是为什么hiend机都是倾向于独自工作,独立运行,拥有自己稳定的资源。

    这也是为什么一向以严谨为称的日系hiend音源,从三十年前开始就都是分体碟机。

    为什么日系hiend会坚持做成分体呢?因为做成一台机子太重了吗?我一开始也是这么认为,但是在后来不断学习的过程之中,我发现这并不是答案。比如说金嗓子的dp900和dc901,虽然账面上加起来有60公斤,但是事实上,拆开就会发现金嗓子和Esoteric实际一半以上的重量是铁壳的重量。也就是说,只要空间设计更为紧密,把日本分体重新设计为一体,并且把重量控制在40公斤以内完全是可行。

    那为什么日本人会乐不疲惫地这样做呢?因素有两个:

    1,teac工程师人所提出的独立资源问题。电源的供给,在hifi是一个非常不值得讨论影响大不大的蠢问题。因为事实上能盲听出来的人哪怕只有10%,哪怕只有1%,就已经证明了这个并非是没有影响,而程度,只是因耳朵而异罢了。这在传统的解码器指标测试上面,是比较难以体现的一个数据,这就是为什么有一些昂贵的专业机解码器有这个种做开关电源来给解码器供电。稍微有点常识的人都知道开关电源影响解码器的解析,但是只要数据上没有太大的波动性影响,就不会影响这些专业解码器的销量。民用hiend产品相对的就会把电源供给部分做的非常严谨,事实上你也可以听出来为什么民用hiend往往声音显得更为稳定,宁静,而且耐听,而专业解码器很多时候被人说过冲,细节天花乱坠。根据hat的个人经验啊,这个其实就是供电质量的区别带来的一个很大的影响。

    至于vivaldi one,刻意做成一体机,回避了线材,专成了单独供电,从专业机世代便坚持多分体的dcs会不知道这是音质上的降级?当然不可能不知道。

    那为什么dcs出了这么一台机器呢?理由也很简单,向市场妥协了呀。现在市场上的玩家们都不喜欢复杂的东西,特别是富出油的大叔们。hat帮过两三位朋友dcs安装系统,我想顺便介绍一下功能的时候他们都甚至不想听。可是恰恰dcs这种前身是专业系的吊丝厂商呢,机子里面装了一大堆多余的专业系功能,可以说整体而言,dcs的机子设计上是非常不用户友好的。

    但是dcs是一家公司,主要目的当然是盈利。别的公司都在说一体机越来越简化,各种pchifi专机走起,都要air play都有USB。那dcs这么复杂行吗?显然,在这一点上面,dcs选择了妥协,选择背离了他们一开始坚持的日本系hiend的严谨,而推出了vivaldi one。

    从我个人的角度而言,这毫无疑问是一个值得批评的地方,做一个发烧友,你当然希望一个厂商,能够去认真,严谨地去追求好声音,能够认真对待他们的产品。当然,从不同的角度你会得出不同的结论,这个世界就是这样,有时候你如果在不正确的地方付出了努力,你不一定能得到回报。而如果你是dcs股东,想必,你也会对这种迎合市场的行为选择点赞233

    待续……
