The Nº360S is based on the circuit topology of the Nº360, but, as a special “S” version, it benefits from significant component upgrades. It offers a stunning level of improvement over the already exceptional sonic performance of the Nº360.
One of the advantages of a separate digital audio processor is that you can take the money which might have otherwise been spent on several built-in D/A converters and put it into one, superior processor which will enhance the performance of all the transports with which it is used. Ironically, many outboard processors fail to live up to this potential due to interference between their various digital inputs.
The Nº360S provides outstanding isolation between its inputs, realizing the full potential of the various digital transports with which it is used. In fact, all unselected digital inputs are disabled. As a result, the selected input effectively has the Nº360S “all to itself ” for its conversion to analog.
