Streaming Interface
True  to  our  promise  to  our  customers  to  always  offer  upgrade  paths  wherever  possible  for  their  existing  Playback  Designs  products  (“never  leave  a  product  behind”),  we  are  now  offering  a  new  accessory  interface  that  allows  all  our  products  to  be  upgraded  with  the  latest  features  in  digital  streaming  and  file  playback. Some of our Dream Series products already have the option to have these features built into them, but with the new external Stream-IF interface these same  features  can  also  be  added  externally  to  all  other  Playback  Designs  products.For  instance,  the  combination  of  the  Dream  DAC  MPD-8  and  this  Stream-IF  interface are a perfect and efficient package for customers who want to primarily stream their music from the internet and play files from local storage.ConceptThe concept behind the Stream-IF interface is to connect digital sources such as computers,  servers,  network  attached  storage  and  internet  streaming  services  outside  the  sensitive  DAC.  It  is  well  known  that  these  digital  sources  carry  a  significant amount of digital and sometimes also mechanical noise, such as clock jitter, asynchronous clocks in power supplies and processors, vibration etc.Connecting these sources to a separate box that is then connected to the DAC with a fiber optical link with a high bandwidth and low jitter specification results in the  best  possible  separation  between  digital  source  and  analog  audio  circuitry.  This separation can result in a dramatic sonic improvement when compared to a direct connection to the DAC via for instance USB.The  first  version  of  the  PLINK  interface  was  launched  more  than  15  years  ago  and  supported  DSD  up  to  5.6MHz.  This  version  is  called  “Classic”  and  is  implemented  in  the  5-series  products  and  IPS-3  (that  have  not  been  upgraded  yet). As technology never sits still DSD has been expanded to 11.2MHz several years ago. Accordingly we also expanded the PLINK format and called it “Sonoma” reminiscent  of  its  origin  in  the  professional  recording  tool  for  DSD  (Sonoma  workstation) that was developed by the founder of Playback Designs during the development of the SACD and DSD formats.PLINK does not use the same media as TosLink, but it is based on a much higher
quality and lower jitter media that is used for very high bandwidth communication links where receivers require an extremely low jitter signal for reliable decoding. For PLINK we use a much lower bandwidth protocol than the specified limit of the media to further increase robustness against jitter.

Features
•new generation USB interface for PCM up to 384kHz and DSD up to 4x
• Built-in Stream-X module for:
• direct connection to streaming services such as Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer and vTuner that can be controlled via an app on a tablet.
• file playback from network attached storage via DLNA and UPnP (renderer and server function)
• Roon end point (“roon-ready”). With this feature any attached DAC can be integrated into a Roon based server system.
• PLINK I/O compatible with Classic, Sonoma and Dream Series products
• Newest generation PDFAS clocking technology for ultra low jitter performance
• Connection to 5- and Dream series products via fiber optical PLINK for optimal separation between digital source and analog output stage of DAC.
• Connection to 3-series products via Coax
• USB connection supports recording via Sonoma Recorder software on Windows computer
• Firmware can be updated by end user
