Welcome to CanEVER AUDIO®  website - CanEVER AUDIO®

It's great to have you here!

Why the "La Fenice" Theater in Venice at the beginning? ... 

 

CanEVER AUDIO® wants be a proposal for the music reproduction that first of all starts from the music itself.

Seems a simple approach, a Columbus’ egg, but it is really the key point.

The priorities are timing, rhythmic integrity, tonal accuracy and dynamics, all facets that together make a master musician superior to a merely average performer.

The technology comes after, it is at the service of the music reproduction and not vice versa.

CanEVER AUDIO® achieves its aims through a 360° approach where all the parts of a unit are important to reach the target: stimulate emotions, as close as possible to a concerto experience.

With a technical approach only, even if close to perfection and based on the maximum informational retrieval and transmission, usually you stay fare away from the music.

CanEVER AUDIO® designed and installed many OEM systems, and the Corum Audio® system is a reference already presented to the people.

ZeroUno  DAC and now ZeroUno  PLUS are a new proposal with the ambition to be easily accepted by the experienced listeners grown up with the vinyl sound.

ZeroUno DAC has the ambition to be fitted in the analogue chain with satisfaction, without regrets.

ZeroUno PLUS is the PREAMPLIFIER challenge after the introduction of ZeroUno  DAC.

Designed, tuned and engineered mainly to enjoy the music and not the technology.

Accept a challenge:

even if you are not a fan of the classical music, go to a classical concert. You will listen to the real voices and the real instruments.

Go back home and listen the “same” music program, it is not important if the orchestra and interpreters are too famous and popular.

Probably your home listening session, even if with the number one orchestra and interpreters, will be very far away from the reality.

And it is explained why "La Fenice" Theater is at the beginning of our presentation; the Theater inspired the goal to reach, was and is the reference. A very ambitious goal but fundamental if you want real emotions from you audio system.  

ZeroUno units helps to keep the reproduction really very close to the reality.

Even if we believe no audio system can reproduce the real excitement of the music, by ZeroUno is possible to go very close.

Be aware of the challenge just said: the reaction of a some people is “the concert is bad sounding, bad acoustic, no details, fake” … comparing to the own audio system; it does not matter if you can listen to your own audio system for a few hours only and then you become tired with a very heavy head.

In the next months other proposals will follow with the same ambition of the ZeroUno DAC and PLUS.

A reference power amplifier … a reference loudspeaker … a streamer … stay tuned.

STEREOPHILE - ZeroUno DAC enters in the recommended Components of the 2017 - CanEVER AUDIO®

Recommended Components: Fall 2017 Edition Digital Processors

From the Stereophile Web Site https://www.stereophile.com/content/recommended-components-fall-2017-edition-digital-processors 

While digital processors with tubed output sections aren't new, the Italian CanEver Audio ZeroUno breaks with convention by looking less like a DAC than a 2A3-fueled power amp, its two Coke-bottle–style CV181 dual-triode tubes enjoying pride of place atop a distinctly attractive case. Under its skin is an ESS Sabre32 ES9018S chip, its eight internal differential DACs used in a quad-sum configuration.

Supplementing the ESS chip are multiple PCM and DSD filters of CanEver's own design, selectable via a menu system that also provides a switchable jitter filter, signal-polarity inversion, channel balance, and other niceties.

The ZeroUno supports PCM to 384kHz and DSD64 and 128 as DoP; newer versions of the CanEver DAC are said to provide MQA compatibility, though that was not available at the time of our review.

Art Dudley noted shortcomings in the ZeroUno's manual, especially when it came to navigating its software menu—we're told that this, too, has been refined in current production—but forgot those complaints after noting that the Italian DAC made his favorite files sound more colorful and "less hi-fi" than what he's used to hearing from digital playback.

Art's conclusion:

"I've heard no other digital product that succeeds quite so well . . . at letting music sound like music." Writing from his testing lair, JA noted the ZeroUno's "respectable measured performance," but cautioned users to keep its jitter and oversampling filters switched on. (Vol.40 No.5 WWW)

 

 

MQA Product Certification

MQA Product Certification - CanEVER AUDIO®

Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a new format for digital audio developed by Bob Stuart, co-founder of Meridian Audio.

MQA sets a new standard in capturing, delivering and reproducing the original master recording, with maximum sound quality, in an efficient and backward compatible file. The technology creates a single, compact, efficient, streamable file with no playback restrictions, that can be used for download or streaming.

CanEver Audio licensed MQA for the ZeroUno in the summer of 2017.

MQA is integrated in a separate USB interface board, pin to pin compatible with the standard ZeroUno USB board, so the implementation in the ZeroUno family is very easy and natural.

 All the ZeroUno products already on the market can be MQA enabled through an easy upgrade.

More information about MQA is available at http://www.mqa.co.uk/
