A two-model series
Its AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs allow a connection to any system equipped with digital audio input.
The Emerson DIGITAL model becomes the ideal companion to a High-End digital-to-analog converter that does not have a network connection.
Need analog outputs?
The Emerson is also available in a purely analog version.
With its digital-to-analog converter, the Emerson ANALOG connects to any kind of system equipped with standard analog audio inputs.
Technology, precision and quality
The original format of the digital Hi-Res music tracks provided by streaming services must be maintained.
With this in mind, we perform no alterations or conversions in order to fully respect data integrity. The streamed music is fully "bit-perfect" all the way through.
We have added extremely precise clocks which ensure perfect timing of data flow, "jitter-free" from the network playback through to the output signals.
