Setup DAC filter with four different Flexible Filter Modes:
- PRECISE: offers best measurement performance with flat frequency response well extended to treble. This mode has very small in-band ripple and best stopband attenuation performance. PRECISE is best for the playback of orchestral 17 music.
- DYNAMIC: exhibits a gentler roll-off curve of frequencies; it maintains great inband, stop-band performance while trades off small attenuation at treble. DYNAMIC is best for the playback of light jazz, chamber music and piano solo.
- BALANCE: is designed to minimize the 'pre-ringing' and 'echo' effects. As a result, this mode sounds very smooth. However, due to the slow roll-off at high frequency, it may lose some details in treble for certain kinds of music. BALANCE is best for vocal, jazz and pop music.
- SMOOTH: All filters in this mode are designed to optimize the subjective listening experience at maximum. By using minimum phase design, there is no 'pre-ringing' effect in this mode, the 'echo' effect is also been reduced as much as possible SMOOTH is the 'all-best' option for music enjoyment.
You may also adjust this setting inside Lightning DS under Lightning Device setting.
Note: The FILTER menu setting will not effect the USB output signal.
