To further improve sound quality especially for USB-DAC users. A dedicated Neutrik USB 2.0 port connects to the DAC for optimum sound quality. Internally there are many detailed improvements to further reduce internal noise including a new capacitor bank to isolate the medical grade power supply, a new higher current 3 pole IEC connector with true ground and a built in power supply noise filter. Newly selected HDDs with vibration isolating cradles ensure a new low level of vibration combined with capacity increase (2 x 3TB). A front panel USB 3.0 port makes importing from USB stick or USB drive very convenient and is in addition to the 3 rear USB 3.0 ports for Easy Backup, Easy Expansion, Easy Play and Easy import.
