No-compromise, full Prism Sound audio quality

Titan makes no compromises on audio quality. It is the result of years of research and development into digital audio conversion and extensive dialogue with Prism Sound's customers.

Titan has the same no-compromise analogue front and back ends as Orpheus with the same fully-balanced-throughout architecture, the same isolation barriers protecting the analogue from digital and computer interference, but with a wider range of PC interface options. 

Titan draws on Prism Sound's years of experience in developing digital audio products, including its range of audio test equipment, adopted by a wide variety of clients across the audio industry from pro-audio to consumer electronics. This experience means that Titan is well-behaved both as a computer peripheral and an audio processor. 

Reliability is vitally important in professional recording. Prism Sound has always made extensive use of precise software calibration techniques in its converters - pots and tweaks are always unreliable, so there are none. 

The design team has gone to great lengths to minimise noise and interference, in particular hum. All of the analogue circuits have galvanic isolation, while the unit's electronically balanced I/O allows it to handle common mode interference sources as well as enabling trouble-free connection to unbalanced equipment. 

It is often said that THD+N figures do not always correlate well with the perception of sound quality and this is true - partly because the traditional measures of THD+N or SINAD expressed as RMS figures are rather a broad measure. With this in mind, we have taken great care to make sure that not only is the Titan noise and distortion spectrum beyond reproach, but the RMS distortion result measures up to the state of the art.

Unsurpassed Jitter Rejection

In the 1990s Prism Sound pioneered testing of sampling and interface jitter and as a result our digital audio products deliver unsurpassed jitter rejection. Prism Sound digital audio products lock up fast and re-generate ultra-stable clock outputs. Another aspect of the traditional Prism Sound converter that is retained was the clocking - it's just as important as analogue-path considerations sound-wise. So whether it's providing a high-quality master clock for the rest of the room, or dealing with a jittery clock from outside, Titan is as rock-steady as its forbears.
