What is the advantage of the digital inputs on the Transparent One speakers?

Each day more and more of our music is moved into the digital domain. As such we have designed the Transparent One speakers to accommodate your digital music as much as possible from the three digital inputs (optical, coax and USB audio) to the digital signal processor on to the Class D digital amplifier. With this design, your digital music can be sent to the Transparent One speakers directly from your digital music source, conditioned through the DSP, then amplified by the Class D amplifier never leaving the digital domain until the point it is sent to the speaker drivers themselves. Not only that, but we have designed the Transparent One electronics to handle high definition digital music up to 96,000 samples per second and 24 bits wide, which is roughly 3.26 times higher resolution than a standard CD. We feel the advantages to this digital centric design is that it is more cost effective, repeatable, lower power consumption, and via the DSP provides a means to better match the amplifier to the speaker than could be achievable cost effectively in an analog only system. And in case you were wondering, the first thing the Transparent One electronics does when it receives an analog input is convert it to high resolution digital.
