The Edelweiss Player borrows technology from our flagship Dream series in a more compact package. It uses the same robust drive mechanism used in the Dream series and its internal DAC is identical to the MPD-6

  • CD / SACD playback
  • Up to 384kHz and up to 11.2MHz DSD
  • USB I/O, AES, Coax, TosLink, PLink I/O
  • Balanced and unbalanced analog outputs
  • Digitally driven, analog volume control
  • Fully differential discrete DAC
  • Optional internal streaming module
  • Software upgradeable by end user
  • Recording software for file creation on computer

In essence this product is identical in features and performance as its sister product, the MPD6 Edelweiss DAC. The DAC section has its roots in the Dream series from where it borrows key technologies and combines them with new ones to create a more compact and cost effective package.

Similarly, it can also be combined with the external MPS-X digital interface to further isolate the digital sources from the analog circuitry. See more details for this operation under the description for the MPD-6 and MPS-X products on this website.

DAC architecture Discrete with Playback Designs’ own proprietary digital algorithms and differential analog output stage. Drive mechanism Same robust and proven drive system as used in the Dream series.

PLINK I/O Compatible with Classic, Sonoma, Edelweiss and Dream Series products for native digital audio transmission. Connection to Edelweiss and Dream series products via fiber optical PLINK for optimal separation between digital source and analog output stage of DAC.

Digital inputs

USB (PCM up to 384kHz, DSD up to 11.2MHz)

AES (PCM up to 192kHz, DSD via DoP)

Coax (PCM up to 192kHz, DSD via DoP)

TosLink (PCM up to 96kHz)

PLINK for all native sample rates

Clock Generator Newest generation PDFAS clocking technology for ultra low jitter performance

Volume control An ultra high end analog volume control can be activated

Software update Playback Designs already created an excellent reputation with its program to offer free software upgrades with new features or new algorithms that the end user can upload into the DAC without the need to return it to the dealer or manufacturer. This will keep the product always up-to-date with the latest trends and, therefore, will help in keeping the value high for this product.

Option Streaming module with full support for PCM up to 384kHz and DSD up to 4x: • 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.
