Three digital inputs ensure to connect to any source available, be it a personal computer via the USB B input or a TV set via the optical input. The co-axial S/PDIF input takes all data from a digital transport such as the CD Box DS2 T. All inputs offer support for high resolution data up to 24bit /192kHz. The USB input offers full high resolution support for all files up to PCM 32/768 and DSD256. The front seated 6.35mm headphone output delivers a clean and precise sound with a musical touch. Un-wanted noise coming in through USB is double filtered to surpress them to a level where it can’t affect audio to realize an undisturbed listening experience. The new aluminium/metal casing ensures highest aesthetics and protects against vibration and interference! Head Box S2 Digital comes in silver or black.
