In addition, optional processing can be configured for upsampling, volume control, and Audio Unit plugins.
Shortest audio signal path
Audio device Exclusive Access
Full Memory Play
File loading, processing, converting to DAC native format are all done before playback to minimize any possible interference
SysOptimizer can be configured to stop the OS X background services potentially interfering with sound quality, and give to Audirvana Plus the extreme priority during playback to ensure the maximum signal streaming precision.
The world benchmark processing for:
64-bit SRC best in class sample rate conversion technology
MBIT+ dithering Volume Control (Dithering is meant to reduce the audible impact of the inevitable reduction in the audio signal precision when reducing the bitdepth, which happens when using a digital volume control. iZotope MBIT+ is the leading technology that pushes the noise way out of the audible spectrum.)
And these filters can be tuned precisely by configuring their advanced parameters
Audio Unit plug ins support
Support huge range of Audio Unit filter plugins available on the market to allow you to pick and use your preferred equalizer, digital room correction, headphone crossover, …
