SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

A. Universal player must output DSD64 and up to 24/192 PCM via HDMI. If there is only one HDMI output, use the HDMI OUT on the D.BOB to send video to a monitor or TV.

B. External DAC must accept DSD via the DoP protocol through S/PDIF Coax (preferable) or Toslink inputs. The D.BOB does not have a USB output.

Partial (and growing) list of DACs that accept DoP over Coax:
