About ACSS technology#

ACSS (Audio-gd Current Signal System) technology is Audio-gd's signature technology for transmitting audio signals in the current domain. This concept, first seen in 1966, has been adapted by us for many years. Since 2005, we have been evolving this technology to include it into all audio signal transmissions in our systems from digital source to power amplifier. Since 2006, ACSS technology became Audio-gd's signature technology and gains a lot of popularity.

About Master-7#

The Master-7 is the ultimate design based on PCM1704 chip. The newly designed DSP processor is soldered on the main board directly for best signal transfer and faster data processing and clocking, it brings the detail, transparency and dynamics to another level over all other audio-gd DACs. It allows users to hear the flaws and perfections of the source recording (matched with a revealing amp).

It supports up to 32bit / 192KHz through USB and I2S input, 24bit / 192KHz through SPDIF inputs (NOS, 2X , 4X and 8X oversampling support). There are no design compromises, no parts are upgradeable, built with all high-grade audio parts, OCC wires, TCXO ,ect.

It is a fully new design concept . The SPDIF inputs have applied special interfaces for processing data, allowing the highest sound quality for the different SPDIF inputs.
