S8 quad DAC upsampler

The S8 module is a 2-channel, asynchronous digital data stream upsampler with D/A conversion error minimization and multi-DAC data distribution. Operation at PCM input sampling frequencies from 44.1kHz to 384kHz, DSD at 2.8224MHz or 5.6448MHz and output up to 384kHz are supported. Best-in-class dynamic range and THD+N are achieved by employing an innovative upsampling kernel with better than 147dB of image rejection. Excellent low-level signal linearity and accuracy is provided by the Sonic Scrambling™ technology, which allows driving up to 2 DAC's per channel configured in differential mode.
