Want to hear the music breathe? Here’s the best available lung on this planet:

The body construction completely made of non-ferro­magnetic materials combined with a massive slate board optimizes the resonance charac­teristics of PLANCK. The new design with non-visible fixation screws and with a massive and solid aluminium cover pleases both eyes and ears alike.

Converting from digital to analog, newly developed discrete output modules with extremely fast, wide-band high-performance class A output drivers ensure the perfect sonic experience. The current-voltage converter comprises absolutely temperature stable and sonically neutral high-precision resistors.

Our high-precision clock generator eliminates the infamous jitter: PLANCK gets all music data at the right time and with its correct value. And the internal frequency compen­sation equipped with custom made mica capacitors of highest grade guarantees absolute precision in the analog domain.

Also, we gave the digital input section a completely new design. PLANCK uses the same outstanding USB Audio 2.0 technology as Audionet’s famous DNx machines:

  • USB Audio 2.0 support up to 192 kHz / 24 bits.
  • Asynchronous data connection and re-clocking ensuring a clean digital music signal.
  • The USB Audio circuitry is completely galvanically isolated from the rest of the PLANCK. Therefore no harmful reactions apply from the PC and its “dirty” power supply.
  • Separate and user-selectable electrical and optical digital inputs (SPDIF) – also using DNx technology and up to 192 kHz / 24 bit for enhanced playback of other digital sources.

In short: In PLANCK we tuned all relevant parts with scientific meticulousness and musical passion to achieve the ultimately possible sonic quantum leap.

The science:
