PLANCK is Audionet’s final statement re. the classical compact disc. No other machine on the market plays with such utmost precision, formidable ease and deep-rooted musicality. PLANCK even surpasses our worldwide successes VIP and ART.
Want to hear the music breathe? Here’s the best available lung on this planet:
The body construction completely made of non-ferromagnetic materials combined with a massive slate board optimizes the resonance characteristics of PLANCK. The new design with non-visible fixation screws and with a massive and solid aluminium cover pleases both eyes and ears alike.
Converting from digital to analog, newly developed discrete output modules with extremely fast, wide-band high-performance class A output drivers ensure the perfect sonic experience. The current-voltage converter comprises absolutely temperature stable and sonically neutral high-precision resistors.
Our high-precision clock generator eliminates the infamous jitter: PLANCK gets all music data at the right time and with its correct value. And the internal frequency compensation equipped with custom made mica capacitors of highest grade guarantees absolute precision in the analog domain.
Also, we gave the digital input section a completely new design. PLANCK uses the same outstanding USB Audio 2.0 technology as Audionet’s famous DNx machines:
USB Audio 2.0 support up to 192 kHz / 24 bits.
Asynchronous data connection and re-clocking ensuring a clean digital music signal.
The USB Audio circuitry is completely galvanically isolated from the rest of the PLANCK. Therefore no harmful reactions apply from the PC and its “dirty” power supply.
Separate and user-selectable electrical and optical digital inputs (SPDIF) – also using DNx technology and up to 192 kHz / 24 bit for enhanced playback of other digital sources.
In short: In PLANCK we tuned all relevant parts with scientific meticulousness and musical passion to achieve the ultimately possible sonic quantum leap.
