GeerFab Audio D.BOB Overview

Designed for audiophiles and cinephiles, the GeerFab Audio D.BOB is a digital breakout box that extracts the high-resolution audio from SACDs, Blu-ray, and DVD-based disks. The converter provides remarkable improvements in clarity, dynamics, focus, presence, definition, sound-staging, and more. A universal player with an HDMI output is required. Its HDMI pass-through allows for player menu settings and other video uses.

The D.BOB extracts DSD64 via the DoP (DSD over PCM) protocol and hi-res PCM up to 24-bit / 192 kHz through the S/PDIF coaxial and TOSLINK optical outputs to your (separately available) external DAC. The D.BOB is fully HDCP and copy-protection compliant. The unit includes a mini-USB port for firmware updates and ships with a IEC power cord.

Note:
Disc-Player Compatibility Note: The D.BOB only works with universal disc players with an HDMI output and only accepts HDMI signals. DAC Compatibility Note: The D.BOB works with most DACs. For DSD, the DAC must accept DoP via S/PDIF coaxial or TOSLINK.
