Description

The 432 EVO High-End model has similarities to the Aeon model but uses an integrated clock on the USB output board instead of a dedicated super clock board as used on the Aeon. The High-End has a dual power supply like the Aeon, but with the Aeon, its dedicated audio grade USB output is powered independently. Even so, the High-End easily surpasses many other similarly priced digital sources, sounding extremely analogue with no hint of digital harshness. The High-End model can be upgraded later to the Aeon or Master

432 EVO High-End Information:

• Uncompromised CD ripping using a bit-perfect Teac rip facility.
• 2 TB full SSD storage on a spring suspension system, with SATA noise filtering and SATA protocol tweaking for lower EMI.
• Dual linear power supplies, one 12V and one 9V, each with AC filtering, toroidal transformer for faster transient performance compared to designs with a shared transformer, dual-stage DC regulation and with buffering inside the DC cable attached to each power supply.
• Low noise audio grade dedicated USB 3.0 output supporting USB Audio Class 2.0 to connect to your USB DAC.
• Ultra high-end upsampling with 10 selectable and tweakable upsample filters.
• Bit perfect mode, upsample only mode or upsample with 432 Hz post-processing.
• Custom remote supported Linux with a real-time kernel.
• Critical area’s of the server have their own power supply.

 

432 EVO High-End Specification:

AUDIO OUTPUTS
Digital output
Low noise audio grade dedicated USB 3.0 output supporting USB Audio Class 2.0 to connect to your USB DAC
Network streaming with real-time scheduling to any Roon endpoint and Logitech / Squeezebox based players
CONNECTIVITY
Ethernet
1x RJ45 for real-time clocked gigabit supporting true gigabit ethernet ISP’s
USB
1x audio grade USB DAC output
2x USB 3.0 ports for backup or connecting additional USB DACs
2x USB 2.0 ports for connecting additional USB DACs
KVM
VGA, DVI, HDMI and keyboard/mouse service ports – normally never needed as the EVO is VPN supported
OPEN FILE FORMATS
Logitech Media Server
All common formats including DSD, WAV, FLAC, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, aac, … Passthrough of MQA
Roon
MP3, WAV, WAV64, AIFF, FLAC, Apple Lossless, OGG, and AAC at resolutions up to 32 bit 768kHz. Roon also supports DSD64, DSD128, DSD256, and DSD512 in the DSF and DFF formats.
DRM FILE FORMAT
Logitech Media Server
Ogg Vorbis is supported by Spotify Passthrough of MQA towards MQA DAC when using bit-perfect mode
Roon
MQA first unfold supported & any MQA feature in Roon As MQA does not recover any new audio data in the second unfold, second unfold can be replaced by 432 EVO’s own upsample which also can support minimum phase rendering with one cycle of post-ringing, or the superior sounding Archimago minimum phase filter.
AUDIO TRANSFORMATIONS
Bitperfect mode No audio transformations occur unless DAC does not support sample rate or bit depth of format, otherwise true bit-perfect matching or even beating the most exclusive CD transports
Upsampling-only Output most DSD & PCM formats in any input sample rate as 24 bit or 32-bit output in one of the following output sample rate:
44.1K, 88.2K, 176.4K, 352.8K and DXD, 706.6K
48K, 96K, 192K, 384K, 768K
432 Hz mode Same as upsampling mode, but with 432 Hz processing without resolution loss. 432 Hz and upsampling are a combined one-step algorithm, therefore no additional load is caused on the CPU when using 432 Hz mode compared to upsampling
SUPPORTED TUNING TRANSFORMATIONS USING 432 Hz MODE
Input pitch 440 Hz up to 445 Hz in one-step increments
Other pitches can be added by special request
Output pitch 415 Hz
426 Hz
430.5 Hz (Equal Tone Temperament)
432 Hz (Verdi’s A, Pythagorean Temperament)
440 Hz (today’s Concert Pitch) → used for upsample-only mode
444 Hz
Supported input formats Any audio and file format from local files on the internal storage on the EVO or a NAS, internet radio, on-demand streaming services such.
444 Hz mode not compatible with live internet radio
UPSAMPLING RECIPES
For Upsampling-Only And 432 Hz Modes
Linear phase User tunable linear phase filter, including tuning of processing buffer size and several precision options. All frequencies have the same delay through the filter.
Minimum phase User tunable minimum phase filter, including tuning of processing buffer size and several precision options. No pre-ringing.
Post-ringing can be regular long tail “minimum-phase” without aliasing, or reduced MQA / Ayre inspired one cycle of post-ringing with free bonus aliasing, create pseudo ultrasonics.
Intermediate phase The only server on the market supporting Archimago’s Intermedia Phase upsampling, the most ideal filter with mainly post-ringing and no phase issues within the audible range.
432 EVO implements his original recipe and two improved variants of this filter
AUDIO SAMPLE RATES
Sample rates All common multiples of 44.1 and 48K
All common DSD formats
Bit depths 16, 24 and 32 bit
CONTROL APPS
Roon Official Roon remote running on Apple or Android tablets & phones
Desktop version of Roon for PC or MAC acting as a Roon remote control
Logitech Media Server Any web browser for web-based version of GUI
SqueezePad (iPad)
iPeng (iPhone/iPad)
Orange Squeeze (Android)
Squeezer (Android)
Squeeze Remote (Windows)
CONFIGURATION INTERFACE
Web Gui Web interface usable on any phone, tablet, laptop or desktop:

2. Check the rip logs
3. Switch between Roon & Logitech Media Server
4. Several other system configuration parameters not often changed
HARDWARE
Ripdrive Hand tested Teac slot-loading, tested with at least 5 retail CD’s which are known to cause rip issues on some drives. All CD’s must pass our extreme test.
Default storage 2 TB full SDD on a spring suspension system, with SATA noise filtering and SATA protocol tuning for lower EMI
Storage upgrades Optional 4 TB or 8 TB full SSD. Please ask your reseller for pricing.
CPU J5040 tuned to a more constant power draw for lower software jitter. More modern and twice as fast than some competitors who use the outdated
N4200
