Densen CastAMP Power Amplifier / Google Cast Streaming
Densen has for years been working on streaming solutions, but realized over time, that the real challenge is not to make the WIFI receiver, but to make sure, software stays up to date, and from an audio point of view: avoid WIFI interference inside the cabinet and most importantly, secure superior sound quality. Out of this came the idea of using an external WIFI source, instead of installing the high frequency receiver close to sensitive audio circuits inside the cabinet. Using the GOOGLE CAST receiver, the Densen CAST AMP has a dedicated Densen CAST power supply, which is an extreme low noise PSU, to secure that the GOOGLE CAST has perfect working conditions. On top of that, the Densen CAST AMP has a dedicated optical input, allowing the GOOGLE CAST to perform at its best, with the highest possible data quality. Densen has even developed a dedicated power cord to connect the GOOGLE CAST to the CAST AMP. This power cord is shielded, to avoid interference, and securing an optimal performance. Further a Densen developed a Toslink cable to complete the setup, and naturally, this optical cable is optimized for use between the GOOGLE CAST and the CAST AMP.
One of the great benefits of the Densen CAST AMP design is, that Densen has avoided creating their own software. It is well known fact, that High end manufacturers often faces problems with own software, as the computer and phone manufacturers develops new software, that is incompatible with the high end manufacturers streaming software. The digital signal from the GOOGLE CAST is converted to analogue using the build in DAC of the CAST AMP. This DAC is based on Densen’s experiences with DAC designs, which traces back to 1996, where Densen designed their first DAC as a OEM product for a European High End manufacturer. The CAST AMP DAC allows 192/24 and as such is capable of higher resolution than GOOGLES CAST delivers, this allows for future upgrades of the GOOGLE CAST technology with ease. The CAST AMP DAC has a gai
