Default AKM's new digital audio ICs

Premium SRCs | Product | AKM - Asahi Kasei Microdevices

AKM launched a web page for their new audio D/A,A/D, and SRC devices and started sample release.
Though their mass production will be started Q2 2015, their spec sheets look attractive.
New top grade DAC AK4490EQ are inproved 7dB of THD+N from AK4399.
New ASRC IC AK4137 have interesting feature,- PCM / DSD conversion function.
It also supports DoP input.(see register setting)
Although I personally do not prefer DSD, it is interesting IC.

It's ironical that PS-Audio are charging $6000 for similar technology !!
