resolution of 32 bits, and it upsamples 48, 96 and 192 to 384 kHz at a resolution of 32 bits. What you can expect to hear is improved
clarity and reduced harshness, at the same time. This option can be turned on and off with a front panel button. It also adds a full
suite of MSB filters that you can select from. It also gives you free access to new filters developed by MSB in the future. Digital Filters
are really key to fine tuning the kind of sound you like.
