Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Chord up-samples?

Hello dave789

Having spent quite some (great) time with the "cicsmemoryplayer" aka cMP2 project, I was recently drawn in on the unusual way Chord D/A conversion is handled. Some statements/interviews from their owner, their head of engineering and some other postings.
All of it seemed very similar to how cPlay (player software @cMP2) calculates an upsampling with indefinite filter algorithms (sinc- & FIR filters). Difference being that cPlay uses the CPUs cache memory to upsample and Chord is doing this with a FPGA chip.

So yes - Chord DACs definitely uses upsampling.

Kind regards
