Accuphase DC-1000 and DP-1000

50 years of Accuphase: New Digital Devices Announced

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, Accuphase is launching the new DC-1000 SACD player and the new DP-1000 digital processor.

In order to minimize vibrations, the Accuphase DP-1000 features a 7.2 kilogram disc drive, whose base plate alone weighs 3.8 kilograms. The low balance point is said to significantly reduce resonance and vibration of the cabinet. High-quality elastic dampers also aim to help in minimizing vibrations. A brushless motor, which avoids mechanical contacts, is supposed to make the drive particularly reliable, low-vibration and quiet.

The drive and the signal processing components are powered by separate toroidal transformers; "high carbon" isolator feet are said to ensure a firm foothold. The DP-1000 has no built-in D/A converter, which means that only digital outputs (HS-Link and coaxial) are available for the transferal of data.

The job of conversion could be fuliflled by Accuphases also new DC-1000 digital processor. It contains an ES9038-Pro processor that drives 8 parallel circuits and supports DSD up to a maximum of 11.2 MHz (USB via ASIO) and PCM up to a maximum of 32 bit / 384 kHz. According to the manufacturer, modern technologies such as the Multi Speed Double DSD principle are said to have achieved an improvement in total harmonic distortion and noise reduction of about 11%.

In addition to completely separate toroidal transformers for the analog and digital sections – as well as the power supply circuitry for the analog and digital circuits, which are also separate – the DC-1000 also uses completely separate signal paths for unbalanced and balanced signals.

The DC-1000 offers three coaxial inputs, two optical inputs and one each in USB, balanced and HS-Link, as well as digital outputs in coaxial and optical. A pair each of RCA and XLR outputs stand ready for putting out analog signals. In Germany, the combination of both devices together is expected to cost around €45,000.
