PDP 3000 HV
The PDP 3000 HV is the latest player in the HV series, and has been developed specifically to reproduce high-resolution audio data without any trace of compromise. For this reason we have equipped the machine with a uniquely superior disc mechanism which reads CD and SACD media perfectly, and transfers their data to its superb PCM and DSD converters. Since this unique converter concept is ideal for use with external sources, we have also designed the PDP 3000 HV to operate as a DAC, featuring seven digital inputs!
Like all HV devices the PDP 3000 HV incorporates no ferro-magnetic materials; it is constructed entirely of pure aluminium, and contains aluminium dividers which separate five compartments housing the disc mechanism with decoder board and digital inputs, the D/A converter with analogue output stage, the analogue mains power supply, the digital mains power supply and - in the solid front panel - the control section with its ultra-bright screen and sensor buttons.
The core of the PDP 3000 HV is the quadruple double-differential digital /analogue converter which is based on the outstanding converter employed in the MP 3000 HV; in this case the converter features a supplementary signal path for processing DSD signals. The signals pass through our equally unique jitter-reduction stage, which receives the data from the CD / SACD mechanism block or the seven digital inputs, before being processed by the converter. The USB input is equipped with one of the latest USB interfaces, and is capable of reproducing PCM and DSD audio data of the highest quality; DSD data are passed directly to the converter modules. The current / voltage transducers which are downstream of the D/A converter are crucial to sound quality, and they are of fully discrete, channel-separate construction, and equipped with our HV technology, as are the analogue output stages.
The socket array on the back panel reflects the symmetrical construction of the case and the overall circuit design. The analogue output stages pass their signals directly to the professional-standard XLR or RCA output sockets for PCM and DSD operation. Below them - behind the lower compartment - are the digital input sockets, the HV bus, the LAN socket and the separate sockets for the analogue and digital mains power supplies.
