Using the Remote Control.
Like the Nativ Vita Music Player the Nativ Wave DAC & Headphone amplifier can be controlled through the Nativ System Remote Control:
The DAC functionality on the remote control is as follows:
Toggle between the digital audio inputs of Nativ Wave (USB, AES/EBU, SPDIF 1, SPDIF 2)
Turns ON/OFF the DSD Up-Sampling (128Fs)
Toggle between the different Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters. The available filters are: Linear Phase, Minimum Phase, Slow Roll-Off, Fast Roll-Off, Standard Attenuation and Anodizing Attenuation*
Toggle between the different display modes you have defined for each of the two OLEDs. See also user guide chapter about the DAC setup.
Turns the 2 OLEDs ON or OFF.
Volume (+/-) and MUTE
Adjusts or mutes the volume on the analog and the headphone outputs.
* Want to know what Finite Impulse Response filters do? Here is a short description of each filter category:
- Linear Phase filters only affect signal amplitude. The phase response of the filter is a linear function of frequency and consequently there is no phase distortion. However such filter response introduces moderate amount of pre-ringing and post-ringing.
- Minimum Phase filters only add post-ringing artifacts, but show a higher amount of post-ringing than that of a Linear Phase filter with the same frequency response. Furthermore Minimum Phase filters introduce a slight phase shift that increases with frequency.
- Apodizing filters are designed for a full attenuation at the Nyquist frequency, in order to avoid any aliasing artefacts. The cut-off frequency is slightly lower compared to a non-apodizing filter.
- Fast roll-off filters offer an optimal spectrum with a high attenuation of the high frequency noise. Slow roll-off filters offer better transients while having less optimal spectrum linearity and high frequency attenuation.
