We are excited to announce the addition of DSD decoding to the Foundation processor. The DSD decoding firmware supports stereo and multichannel recordings via any of the 10 HDMI inputs. Playback options include DSD 2-ch Direct, DSD Stereo, and DSD Multi modes. DSD 2-ch Direct converts a stereo DSD signal to analog and directly passes it to the left and right analog outputs. DSD Stereo first applies any left and right channel crossover configured in the Foundation menu, converts the signal to analog, and then sends it to the left and right outputs. DSD Multi supports multichannel DSD recordings and utilizes all crossovers configured in the Foundation menu. There is no configuration required as the Foundation automatically recognizes a DSD signal and defaults to the last used DSD mode for playback. Pressing the mode button on the remote control or web server interface will cycle through all three DSD modes.
All existing Foundation processors can be upgraded to DSD decoding but have to be returned to Krell for this additional feature. There is no charge for this upgrade other than shipping. Please contact us to set up your Foundation upgrade
