The Musician Pegasus presents itself as a magnificent and particularly powerful DAC, taking advantage of a neat R2R architecture. Integrating the best current technologies, the device benefits from a low-noise power supply, a FIFO buffer, signal processing by FPGA and a FIR filter. It is thus capable of decoding very high sample rates, up to 32bit PCM 1536kHz and DSD1024 via its USB and I2S inputs. The USB interface is managed by a STM32F446 MCU with Thesycon driver. The whole unit is integrated in a massive Aluminium case.
A more than complete connection system
The Musician Pegasus provides you with most of the connections common to today's HiFi devices. We thus find at the input of USB-B, I2S via HDMI LVDS, AES/EBU, Toslink Optics and Coaxial. On the output side, the device offers unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR, the latter output being obviously recommended to take advantage of the full potential of the device.
It is not recommended to use the XLR and RCA outputs simultaneously, as these are shared.
|4||RCA right channel output|
|5||XLR right channel output|
|6||XLR left channel output|
|7||RCA left channel output|
|8||I2S input via HDMI|
|10||Optical Toslink input|
|13||Power supply input|
The I2S via HDMI LVDS pinout of the Pegasus is as follows. This one is designed for compatibility with most HiFi products. Be sure to check the compatibility of the I2S pinout of the device you want to connect beforehand.
The following hardware has been tested and works with the Pegasus :
- Jay's Audio CDT MK2
- Matrix SPDIF 2 USB
- Soundaware D280
- Gustard U16
- Singxer SDA-1
