Hi Folks,

Yesterday I wrote an email to Pioneer Support from their website on the DSD to PCM downconverion topic of 563A and got this reply. I am posting it as it is (Only editing that has been done is my email has been removed). One thing that you will notice is that there are a lot of typos .....

Hope this will help....

Thanks,
-Bimal

DV-563A is a true SACD player that passes the signal through a DSD chip.

According to the Factory, The DSD signal is not converted to PCM
before converting to analog .

There is no PCM conversion on the line. The DSD signal is converted to
Analog directory.

The bass management, 563A has 100hz crossover frequency.

For more detail
When playing a SACD Disc, The signal goes on;

For Front 2CH playing ;
EBY-CHIP(DVD Decorder) ?SACD Decorder ? SW IC for Audio Digital Data
select of SACD or Others ?D/A Convertor ? Analog output.

For Multichannel playing;
EBY-CHIP ? SACD Decorder ? D/A Convertor ? Analog output.

Inquiry:This is regarding the 563A DVD/DVD-A/SACD player.


I read the following comment in the net. "When the 563 was first
announced, it was stated that it converted SACD's DSD to PCM to keep it
cheap"

Is the above statement true? Are we not getting 100% hi res?


Some SACD players have dedicated 192kHz/24-bit Audio DAC for each
channel (They are ofcourse more expensive). 563A had only ONE 192kHz/24-bit
Audio DAC. So what is the difference in sound quality?


I plan to buy this system this weekend. If you could answer my
questions I will be ever greatful.

Matt,

Just search this forum for 563. There is a thread that Brajeesh started a while back that has 100's of posts, and have been read over 10,000 times. If that does not answer any questions you have about the 563, I will be amazed.
