Description

The 432 EVO Standard model is the entry-level model, for those who want to enjoy high-quality streaming and full 432 Hz plugin functionality but the budget doesn’t allow for the upper models or those who want to ultimately own the HIGH-END or AEON model, and start with the STANDARD to upgrade later. It has the same software as the other 432 EVO models including the same Linux OS with a real-time kernel, but in this case, the software has basic tuning.

However the USB output of the STANDARD combined with the real-time kernel and its single Sbooster BOtW MK II true linear power supply will outperform most music streamers, PC’s and MAC’s

On the standard, the motherboard USB output is used to connect to your USB DAC. The High-End & Aeon models feature a dedicated USB output card, and on the Aeon & Master models, this USB output is super clock-driven. The upper models also feature more advanced software.

432 EVO Standard 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.
• Single 12V linear power supply from Sbooster, the Sbooster BOtW MK2. One of the best power supplies on the market, with low voltage drop, high-quality transformer and high-quality DC cable.
• 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 real-time kernel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

432 EVO Standard Specification:

AUDIO OUTPUTS
Digital output
Several motherboard USB outputs supporting one or more USB Audio Class 2.0 DAC’s
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
4 ports available for USB audio & backup
2x USB 3.0 ports for backup or connecting additional USB DACs
2x USB 2.0 ports for connecting 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

2. Check the riplogs
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 past our extreme test.
