96 kHz Sampling Rate Converter

for high-end digital audio

96 kHz Sampling Rate Converter
This converter is specifically intended to upgrade somewhat dated, digital signal sources. It recognises all common sampling rates and converts these to 96 kHz. By design, this converter is ideally suited to be combined with our ‘Audio DAC 2000’. However, it may also be used as a stand-alone unit.Quality conscious audiophiles have, in all likelihood, already replaced the standard D/A-converter in their equipment with an up-to-date 24-bit/96-kHz model, such as the ‘Audio DAC 2000’, published in the November and December 1999 issues of Elektor Electronics. The next logical step is to upgrade the audio installation so that the sampling rate of the (digital) signal sources is converted to 96 kHz before presenting it to the D/A-converter.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
