Pure sound that’s achieved using fewer external filter components are just two of the benefits of the WM8716, a DVD audio-ready, 192-kHz stereo a/d converter. The firm’s proprietary, multi-bit sigma-delta architecture is used to achieve significantly reduced out-of-band noise compared to most modern audio DACs. The device’s maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz is at the high-performance end of the DVD Audio Specification v1.0.Signal-to-noise ratio is 110 dB (A-weighted stereo) when not muted at 48 kHz. Dynamic range is 110 dB and stopband attenuation is 82 dB. These specifications make the converter suitable for applications such as CD audio, DVD and home theatre systems.
