Default UCD info: Philips DFR9000

Not DIY but informational, the Philips DFR9000 receiver is rumoured to use UcD amplification

No idea, I've lost the link to my source, if I can find it again I'll check it.

It's a 400 british pound receiver, so I think it's not in the realm of cheap chip implementation

Also in the ‘Home Entertainment’ range is the DFR9000 multichannel digital receiver, which has been designed to partner the DVP9000S. Like the DVP9000S, the DFR9000 can be linked via HDMI, allowing digital transfer of video and audio. It features Dolby Digital EX and DTS ES decoders, and has an integrated DAB digital radio tuner.

The receiver is also equipped with Faroudja DCDi processing, upscales video to 1080i resolution and also features CD upsampling. Both the DVP9000S and DFR9000 are due for release next month, priced at £400 each

I can translate the page if really needed. Here are the interesting parts (?).


Unique top class UCD (Universal Class D) digital amplifiers:
Top class UCD digital amplifier is fully digital Class D amplifier which is designed to minimize impedance and give the best audio measurement results. The performance of UCD digital amplifier will satisfy the most demanding enthusiast.

Metal base and circuits: Excellent sound reproduction
The player has a reinforced base which is braced and shielded to decrease electromagnetic interference and vibration. The audio circuits are based on careful listening tests and top class components are chosen after carefull audio measurements. Other components are also carefully chosen to ensure unique listening experience.

CD oversampling improves cd sound quality:
CD oversampling is a modern sound processing technique which improves the sound quality of normal cd's by increasing time resolution and sampling rate.



My english is far from perfect but I suppose that my translation is somewhat easier to understand than finnish

I wonder if this thing feeds SACD DSD stream directly to the amps...

Brunoooo? :-) Could you comment on the quality of this thing please?

It has amazing stuff going on at its price tag... Faroudja scaling of sources is a wow... SACD decoding is wow...

Too bad it's only 6.1, 7.1 would be really neat :-)
