The Saturn-R CD-DAC player offers complete flexibility and integration into any system. Essentially two products in one, the Saturn-R 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, all at the highest possible resolution up to and including 192kHz-24Bit. The Saturn-R has two optical inputs, two Co-Axial inputs, a fully asynchronous USB and an added ‘direct’ digital output from the CD playback section. This ensures the Saturn-R integrates perfectly into any system and provides the perfect partner for the Rega Elicit-R integrated amplifier.
- New Wolfson WM8742 DAC
- Enhanced Output amplifier circuit
- Enhanced Digital power supplies
- Improved user interface
- Redeveloped Analogue & Digital outputs
- Solaris remote with CD, DAC and amplifier functionality
- USB 192kHz - 24bits asynchronous
- Dimensions: Width 432mm x Depth 325mm x Height 82mm
- Dimensions needed to operate: Width 432mm x 350mm Depth x Height 180mm.
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.
Saturn-R XMOS USB DRIVER V2.15.0
Before you can use the USB function of the Saturn–R you must first download the Rega USB Windows driver and install it on your PC.
Located under ‘ Product Downloads’ on this webpage.
Follow the instruction for installation. Once installed, USB will be ready to use. This driver is not required for MAC OS.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR SYSTEM IS CONFIGURED CORRECTLY TO OUTPUT HIGH RESOLUTION FILES WITHIN YOUR CHOSEN AUDIO/MEDIA PLAYBACK SOFTWARE.
If your PC does not default to the connected USB audio device you must select the XMOS AUDIO DEVICE FROM THE DROP DOWN LIST.
