I have 2 questions about the Rossini:

- If I get a dCS Rossini DAC + dCS's External Clock,.... can I use the dCS's External clock to clock also an Aurender W20 ?

- I read that the Rossini also includes DEEZER streaming, but... DEEZER is not mentioned in the Rossini's manual. So... can someone tell me if I can use DEEZER's iPad App and stream direct to the Rossini at full resolution (without using AirPaly)

thanks in advance for your answers

PS: has someone compared the Rossini DAC with the Brinkmann Nyquist DAC and the TotalDac Seven, all in the same price range ?

Can answer the question about the clock

Yes you can clock an Aurender W20 using I assume a Rossini clock. However to accommodate streaming of both 44 and 48 kHz material, you need a special dongle that communicates via the clock’s rs232 port via a usb input to automatically select the correct clock speed

Google Aurender dongle to see images etc

The new Rossini SACD/CD transport is finally about to be distributed in the U.S. (November 2018). Of course, one has to but a dCS DAC to secure the SACD hand-shake between units.

I wonder if dCS will have one at the Bartok event next week at Paragon?

Just done the upgrade to 2.0 on the Rossini (that I have on loan), great machine, now with the same "mapping" as the Vivaldi, the upgrade should create a SQ improvement to the newly introduced Bartok.

I read the Rossini Manual v2.0x. In the session of "What's in the box" it adds "dCS Universal IR remote control" which is not listed in the manual v1.1x.

This means new Rossini will be shipped with remote control. I am wondering what kind of remote control it will be: the traditional or premium version?

The Rossini 2.0 software includes:

Updated RingDAC mapping algorithm based on the Vivaldi 2.0. This includes user-selectable mapping optimizations to allow for further tailoring of the sonic character of the DAC.
Addition of a DSDx2 up-sampling option adapted from Vivaldi 2.0 and Vivaldi One.
Addition of DSD Filter 5 from Vivaldi 2.0 ( A personal favorite of mine when listening to DSD on my Vivaldi DAC )
Improved handling of MQA transitions to eliminate dropouts
New time display modes for Rossini Player
Support for app control of a connected Rossini Transport (requires update to the dCS Rossini app via the App Store)

I have not played with the 2x DSD upsampling yet, but I did take some time to listen to the three different mappings and prefer the new map 1, sounds a bit fuller with more air around voices and instruments. (map 2 is what the Rossini had before)

I just purchased the new remote over the weekend. It looks a bit better than the original. Until they decide whether they will update the programing on the Vivaldi those with Rossini have much better control of Roon with either remote than I have.
