DSD 2.8/5.6MHz Native File Playback by ASIO 2.1 or DoP
Both 2.8/5.6MHz DSD files are processed in native mode to properly convert DSD into an analog signal, and skipping PCM conversion in between. ASIO2.1 and DoP (DSD over PCM) playback are also supported. (Mac supports DoP only, with standard driver)
 
Up to 32bit/384kHz PCM File Playback
With PCM file format, up to 32bit/384kHz is supported.
 
Asynchronous Transfer Mode
By ignoring clock signal from a PC, transfer timing is controlled by more accurately, nearly eliminating clock-noise and allowing digital data to travel un-affected.
 
Variety of Settings to Match Your Preference
Three types of digital filters are provided for PCM playback, while 4 types of cut-off filters are provided for DSD playback. Also, shutting down unnecessary circuits – USB circuit when S/PDIF inout is selected, or Line Out circuit when Headphone is connected – for purer audio processing.
 
Reducing Jitter Noise by 192kHz Up-Converting
With a PCM file sampling at a frequency less than 192kHz, users are able to convert up to 192kHz in order to reduce jitter noise, or keep the original sampling rate to enjoy the original sound.
 
Dual Monaural Circuits to Eliminate Signal Interference and Maximize Performance
Every single part, the digital, analog sections, the DAC and the operational amplifiers are designed in dual monaural design to eliminate interfering noise to other channels. This maximizes their potential, and achieves a purer audio processing signal.
 
32bit Compatible BurrBrown PCM1795 on Each Channel
Celebrated BurrBrown PCM1795 is employed on each channel. With the PCM1795 alone, it supports 32bit processing is supported with 123dB S/N Ratio. Dual MUSES8920 Operational Amplifier on Each Channel
Two MUSES8920 operational amplifiers are employed on each channel. The MUSES8920 was developed for hi-fi components to delivers clear 3-dimensional sound.
 
Individual Toroidal-core Power Transformer on Each Channel – Maintaining Total Dual Monaural Design
The two toroidal-core power transformers are highly energy efficient and offer a stable current supply. Employing them on both the left and right channel ensures that current is delivered to each channel, exclusively.
 
RCA Output with Parallel Buffer for Better Drivability
Two operational amplifiers are connected parallel with the lineout circuit section to improve drivability of lineout signal. This helps achieve more of a linear analog output signal, than any other known method.
 
A full-metal body, small footprint that can be placed on a desktop
Not only the front panel, but both the side and top panels are constructed of aluminum and attached to a robust steel chassis. These heavy parts eliminate vibrations, and allow all internal circuits to always perform under stable conditions. An A4-size body allows the UD-501 to fit any small space. The Reference 501 series defines a new standard to fit all modern interior, with great space-saving design and a timeless presence.
 
Large Number of Inputs/Outputs for Full-Scale Hi-Fi System Integration
The UD-501 provides two optical and coaxial digital inputs, one pair of XLR and one pair of RCA analog audio outputs. The RCA lineout jacks have an exclusive clearance zone, so a high grade pin cable with a large shell is able to be connected.
The output terminal is selectable: -RCA or XLR; the XLR connectors have switchable polarity, 2=HOT or 3=HOT. A detachable AC cable with 3-polar socket also allows user to upgrade to a high-grade AC cables.

Up to 90 Day Returns!

Returns are easy and flexible. We will accept returned goods up to 90 days from purchase with the following restrictions as summarised below. For more details please read our Terms & Conditions of Sale, a link is shown at the bottom of the home page.

Changing your Mind
It's OK to change your mind but please be aware that all goods must be returned in as new, unused and re-saleable condition. This means that all packaging must be intact, all accessories are complete in their original wrappers and any free items are also returned with the goods. Essentially the product must be returned in the same condition as you would expect to receive a new unit in. In all cases the cost of returning the goods will be the customer's responsibility. All faulty items must be returned complete and will be repaired under the manufacturer's warranty.

 

How we Handle Returns
Depending on how long you have had the goods there are different options availble to you. In the case of faulty items, if the item fails due to a manufacturing fault between 1 and 28 days from delivery we will exchange it for a brand new one of the same model. Any items which are found faulty after 28 days from delivery will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. For returns where you have changed your mind, please find our policy below:

Returns

Exchange
This is were you return your item and we will exchange it for another item of equal or higher value. If the item you wish to change to is of higher value you only pay the difference. If the item is of a lower value we will issue you with a credit note for the difference which you can spend with us at a later date.

Credit Note
This is where you return your item and we issue you with a credit note which you can use against another purchase with us.

Refund
This is where you return your item and we issue a refund back to the same method you paid with. e.g. the same credit card. This is not available after 14 days, only exchange or credit note is available after 14 days.

25% Restocking Fee
If your item is returned to us between 29 and 90 days from delivery we will charge a restocking fee of 25% of the price you paid for the item initially. This will be deducted from the value of the exchange or credit note which is issued to you. This is because  technology in the AV marketplace moves fast, and as a result the value of items decrease very quickly.

Please note we do not accept returns after 90 days, except for repairs under warranty.

To complete your order please call us on 0800 634 4484
9am to 6pm Mon-Fri, 9am to 5.30pm Sat.

Thank you!
