What else to know about the DP-65v?

**MMB Type D/A Converter** \ The D/A converter in the processor section features the high-precision MMB principle developed by Accuphase. Four D/A converters selected according to strict sound quality criteria are connected in parallel, resulting in dramatically improved linearity, THD, dynamic range, and signal-to-noise ratio. Digital inputs allow use of this ultimate D/A conversion system also with external components.  **20-Bit, 8-Times Oversampling Digital Filter** \ The purpose of a digital filter is to multiply the sampling frequency by an integer, thereby moving any spurious noise components far outside the audible range.\ The filter in the DP-65V is manufactured by NPC and offers state-of-the-art characteristics in all vital aspects, such as absence of group delay, passband ripple, and attenuation. The filter approaches the theoretical limits of performance. The deemphasis stage features an IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) design to assure precise gain and phase characteristics. **Totally Separate Processor Section With Coaxial and Optical Input for Digital Signals** \ A digital input allows the user to enjoy the top-level performance of the processor section also with other components that can supply a digital signal, such as another CD transport unit, DAT recorder, MiniDisc recorder etc. For utmost flexibility, the input can handle both optical and coaxial connections. Internal processing of audio data is designed to manage all data from these inputs in 24-bit format. **Digital Level Control Prevents Sound Quality Deterioration** \ The 20-bit MMB D/A converter in the DP-65V has a 4-bit margin, which allows precise level attenuation down to -40 dB without any loss in signal qualit **Provisions for Direct Connection of Digital Voicing Equalizer[ DG-28](** \ Because the CD transport section and digital processor section in the DP-65V are entirely separate, the DIGITAL Voicing Equalizer DG-28 can be inserted into the signal path, to allow sound field control of the signal entirely in the digital domai **Fully Balanced Analog Output Circuitry** \ The audio output section features completely balanced circuitry which is isolated from the ground line. Any noise that may be induced in the signal path will be canceled out, so that the playback sound remains utterly pure and undiluted.

Brief History of Accuphase

Kensonic Laboratory, Inc. had originally been releasing its products under the brand name Accuphase, but on the occasion of its 10th anniversary the company was renamed to Accuphase Laboratory, Inc., thereby unifying the brand and company name. The word Accuphase was adapted by taking the prefix ACCU from the word "accurate" and combining it with PHASE which is an important factor that relates to the innermost essence of audio technology. The unusual and somewhat difficult to pronounce name was a complete unknown in the beginning, and the company was often thought to be foreign rather than Japanese. In June 1973, one year after its formation, Accuphase moved to newly built premises in the Aoba district of Yokohama where the company is still located today. In August of the same year, the long awaited first models went into production: the separate power amplifier/preamplifier combo P-300 and C-200, soon followed by the AM/FM tuner T-100. Ever since its beginnings, Accuphase has been focused on the true high end, aiming to create outstanding products and become one of the leading brands in the world of audio. This aim was achieved through the dedicated and unwavering pursuit of quality. Our sincere attitude and serious stance are reflected in products that maintain full traceability also after they enter the market, and that are designed to deliver beautiful sound and top performance over the course of many years of ownership. Utilizing only top-quality parts and innovative circuit design, and built with uncompromising attention to craftsmanship, these products delivered amazing performance and optimal sound, but their price tag was quite out of the ordinary as well...
