Vanity103HD DoP output in SACD mode

Vanity103HD DoP output in SACD mode
June 08, 2014 04:35PM
Hi all,
The Vanity103HD module now has an optional firmware with selectable SACD playback in DoP mode. DoP stands for "DSD over PCM" and this method allows to send raw DSD stream in standard 24bit PCM frames at 176.4kHz over SPDIF. More details about the method can be found here.

In order to free up some FPGA resources for the DoP encoding functionality, the optional firmware lacks the 4.0 downmix. Downmixing has to be performed in PCM domain after DSD to PCM conversion and cannot be used with DoP output mode anyway. Please specify which firmware you wish to have loaded when ordering the Vanity103HD module.

Should you have any questions about DoP, feel free to discuss them in this thread.

Regards,
Pavel

Hello,

Curious if there is a list of known dac's that the Vanity103HP DoP over SPDIF has been proven to work with. I see that the PS Audio DS has been listed, but nothing for Mytek, dcs, MSB, others...

Very interested in getting a Vanity103HD connected to my dcs Debussy.

Thanks,
Jimmy

Hi Jimmy,
The Vanity103HD sends out a standard DoP v1 signal, so any DAC that supports this protocol should work. Our Hong Kong partner Volnet has tested a few DACs with the DoP support and you can see the list of tested DACs in this link.

There is also a report on a Chinese forum. Hope it helps.

Best Regards,
Pavel

How is it selectable ? Setting the player to the DSD mode in the SACD Output in Audio Format Setup ?

Thanks.

And enabling the DoP output format by setting the switch 5 to ON.
