The D-05u is the third model with the built in USB-DAC which uses trickle-down technology from the flagship model D-08u and the mid-range model D-06u released last year. LUXMAN's proprietary drive mechanism LxDTM with high rigidity is employed. Two of the Texas Instruments 32 bit DAC PCM1795 were adopted by Luxman to allow fully balanced configuration for the output amplifier circuit. USB input accepts up to 192 kHz/ 32bit PCM, and DSD 5.6 MHz.
The SACD drive (LxDTM) in the D-05u was developed in-house by LUXMAN to assure the best possible performance. Its a derivative design from ultra-massive design first used in the D-08 which combines superior rigidity with outstanding accuracy. Compared to a CD drive, an SACD drive has a higher RPM, and pickup positioning accuracy as well as the suppression of vibrations must be of a higher order, to allow full access to the enormous amount of information stored on the disc.
