– An introduction of Tube Music Processor (TMP) X-GRAND Anniversary:
Among DAC Anniversary products, X-Grand TMP is currently ThivanLabs most advanced DAC electronic light. The product is a combination of a digital part using the latest high-end decoding module FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and the advanced 64bit FIR filter circuit, more efficient than DACs with decoding chips. ThivanLabs classics and sonic luminaires are optimized to provide a very life-like, realistic and natural sound.
The FPGA decoding module enhances many important factors to create superior sound quality such as maximized reduction of signal latency and noise pollution – a trait possessed only by international high-end DAC lines. TMP X-Grand is truly a reference product, in which the technology of the decoding module helps convey the audio signal as quickly as possible, yet preserving sound elements of authenticity, music and feeling. The digital signal control section of the module directs signal outputs straight to the amplifier, guaranteeing the best and purest music experience.
For the TMP X-Grand Anniversary, its electronic circuit has been calibrated and optimized for all incoming audio signals. These audio signals are then decoded by the FPGA module "R2R DSD 64-Bit Decode Module supporting DSD64 to DSD512 before entering the amplification section with an electronic light bulb and the audio output transformer for rich, deep, melody yet very detailed analog quality. In order to achieve the best musical experience with the most authentic nature of sound, preserved and conveyed by this high-end version, the application of components has been conducted with utmost care.
In terms of appearance, TMP X-Grand Anniversary carries the natural luxurious sandalwood color. Its enclosure is processed by high quality industrial wood, has been industrially treated for long-term durability, anti-termites, minimizing expansion under weather. The aluminum panels are CNC crafted with the best final touch of elegant pale yellow, contrasting with the natural wood color to bring out the product’s ideal beauty. Moreover, its modern minimalist design with a large LCD screen in front displays all audio signal input parameters. The TMP input selection button and power switch are also placed in front for users’ convenience.
TMP X-Grand has all the common ports such as:
– USB connection port: used for all devices using output audio via USB ports such as Ipads, IPhones, Android Smart phones, Android Box, HD Box, Music Server, PC,
– Optical connector (Fiber): used for devices such as CD, DVD, HD, Smart TV, TV Box, Android Box….
– Coaxial connector (RCA / BNC): used for sources such as CD players, DVD players, Blu-ray….
– AES connection port: used for a number of professional equipment in studios, on- stage performance
