SATURN MK3 CD / DAC
The new Saturn MK3 is re-housed in our very latest case designed to match the rest of the Rega range. The Saturn MK3 CD-DAC player offers complete flexibility and integration into any audio system. Essentially two products in one, the Saturn MK3 houses a high specification transport and independent DAC circuit. Both sections are fully remote controllable via the supplied Solaris remote handset. You will find plenty of connectivity options, up to and including 24bit-192kHz. The Saturn MK3 has two optical inputs, two Co-Axial inputs, a fully asynchronous USB and ‘direct’ digital output from the CD playback section. This ensures the Saturn MK3 integrates perfectly into any system and provides the perfect partner for the forthcoming all new Rega Elicit MK5 integrated amplifier.
Wolfson WM8742 DAC
USB 192 kHz - 24 bits asynchronous
Enhanced output amplifier circuit
Enhanced digital power supplies
Solaris system remote included
The Saturn-R uses our proven digital to analogue converter and analogue output amplifier technology coupled with a pair of Wolfson WM8742 digital to analogue converter IC’s. The Saturn-R has improvements to the CD section power supply which was a result of the research & development of our reference Isis CD player along with the improved microcontroller and display drivers.
The Saturn-R uses a high stability master clock and high capacity power supply in the CD circuitry, high performance PLL digital interface receiver, isolated digital inputs and high performance power supply architecture in the DAC circuitry. Signal switching between the CD and DAC functions are performed in the digital to analogue converter stage. The signal path of the CD section in CD mode is kept to a minimum.
USB 192kHz-24bits asynchronous
The DAC USB input has been improved with asynchronous operation at sample rates of 44.1 to 192kHz with a bit rate of up to 24bits. The USB input has the same galvanic isolation as used in the Rega DAC-R. The USB uses dedicated drivers in the computer, enabling full ASIO operation, thus eliminating signal degradation caused by generic windows based drivers.
