DASP-2002 Digital Audio SignalProcessor

not just for the copybit

DASP-2002 Digital Audio SignalProcessor
This circuit can be included in every S/PDIF link between two digital audio devices (CD player, DVD player, CD recorder or MD recorder). Besides allowing the notorious copybit to be modified, it can be regarded as a sort of universal processor for digital audio signals.Unlike a similar circuit design previously published in Elektor Electronics, this new design is thus truly more than just a ‘copybit killer’. Naturally, this application is the key feature here — certainly since we have become aware that the DVD Serial Copy Management System often makes it impossible to make the permitted single copy. For audiophiles who want to compile and process their own versions of digital audio signals, the copybit is thus always a major hindrance. However, the circuit described here has more to offer. For instance, the audio data can also be processed, possibly using a DSP, and the circuit can also convert a coax signal to an optical signal and vice versa, which is a handy extra feature that makes this device quite a bit more universal in use.
