dCS is pleased to announce the release of Bartók 2.0. We have applied the technology developed for Vivaldi 2.0 and Rossini 2.0 to our Bartók platform and, like Vivaldi and Rossini, this performance upgrade is available through a simple firmware update. This update to Bartók brings significant gains in terms of sonic and measured performance.
Bartók 2.0 includes the following:
- Updated Ring DAC 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 upsampling option.
- Addition of DSD Filter 5.
Full details regarding Bartók 2.0 are available in the attached release notes.
