digital audio out, VGA, 10/100 Ethernet, separate DC power input cutout for integrated hard disk drive bay, proprietary 16-bit AT hard drive interface.
Later versions of the Live!, usually called "Live! 5.1", offered 5.1-channel support which adds a center channel speaker and LFE subwoofer output, most useful for movie watching. The Live! 5.1 could also use one of the 3.5 mm jack ports as an
out, which allowed the connection of an external decoder.
Many pitch generators operate in the digital domain, producing output in various digital audio formats such as AES3, or
. Such generators may include special signals to stimulate various digital effects and problems, such as clipping, jitter, bit errors; they also often provide ways to manipulate the metadata associated with digital audio formats.
While these are the standard colors found on commercially made products, cables with different-colored connectors may be used, as long as the cable itself is compatible with the application (that is, video cables with 75 ohms impedance for video and
, audio cable for analog audio).
The box had high-end hardware, including HDMI, component video outputs, and coaxial (
) and optical (TosLink) digital audio outputs. The box also had USB and Ethernet ports, although these were not activated in the last release of the firmware. An HDMI or DVI connection was required to watch HD content, which was in 720p resolution.
Sound functionality can also be integrated onto the motherboard, using components similar to those found on plug-in cards. The integrated sound system is often still referred to as a "sound card". Sound processing hardware is also present on modern video cards with HDMI to output sound along with the video using that connector; previously they used a
connection to the motherboard or sound card.
Television connection is usually done via; composite, SCART, Component, HDMI video, with Optical Audio (TOSLINK/
), and connect to the local network and broadband internet using either a wired Ethernet or a wireless wifi connection, and some also have built-in Bluetooth support for remotes and game-pads or joysticks. Some players come with USB (USB 2.0 or USB 3.0) ports which allow local media content playback.
An example of a transport for a storage medium would be an audiophile-grade audio CD transport, which houses no D/A converter, unlike most ordinary audio CD players. Instead, the audio CD transport is connected to an external D/A converter via a coaxial (
) or optical (Toslink) digital audio connection to convert the digital audio information to analog for interfacing to most audio equipment.
Early examples of DJ controllers include the Hercules DJ Console released by in 2004, which features a 6 channel soundcard with
and MIDI ports, traditional mixer-style faders, crossfader and EQs, jog wheels and CD DJ style button controls. In 2007, Vestax produced a controller specifically designed for DJing, the VCI-100, that emulated two turntables and a DJ mixer setup and was built with quality components acceptable to DJs. Many manufacturers saw the success of the VCI-100 and started selling their own similar devices. Unlike the original VCI-100, some of those devices had integrated sound cards.
DSP-based amplifiers which generate a PWM signal directly from a digital audio signal (e. g.
) either use a counter to time the pulse length or implement a digital equivalent of a triangle-based modulator. In either case, the time resolution afforded by practical clock frequencies is only a few hundredths of a switching period, which is not enough to ensure low noise. In effect, the pulse length gets quantized, resulting in quantization distortion. In both cases, negative feedback is applied inside the digital domain, forming a noise shaper which has lower noise in the audible frequency range.
The data pins, 10, 12, 14, were used by some manufacturers for DOLBY ProLogic, surround and multichannel on their TV sets (some high end models with built in Dolby decoders, and external surround speakers, both CRT, LCD and plasma sets, and only in Europe ( and European versions of Japanese TV Sets and DVD players), and mainly on S/PDIF ), in order to connect a DVD player to the TV set and stream the Dolby and DTS to the surround of the TV set. However, this protocol was rarely used, as it was limited only to a certain manufacturer, and the connections were different from a manufacturer to another, and in some cases, it was only commanded by the pin 8. In this case, it was unusable with RCA to SCART adapters. Also, if a Compatible TV with such connection and a compatible DVD with such connection, but from different manufacturers were interconnected, the surround might not work, and only the stereo sound from the DVD player was available to the TV, because some manufacturers did not use
, but an own protocol. Also, this connection might be also lost, if the connection of the DVD with the TV was made indirectly (through a VCR in daisy chaining mode, for example), however, some VCR allowed the pass-through of this signals. Some DVD player manufacturers on some models offered
only on SCART, and an adapter in order to extract the digital audio signal to send it to a home cinema. To the present day this connection remains rare, as HDMI, S/PDIF, and TOSLINK can provide multichannel audio, also some TV sets with Surround built in may have an Optical or S/PDIF INPUT, beside Output.
The MC-909 is the first Roland groovebox to feature a sampler. It can record audio from any of the external audio inputs,
connectors, or import wav and aiff files from a computer using a USB port. The sampler can be upgraded up to a total of 272 MB RAM (16 MB User + 256 MB PC-100 or PC-133 168-Pin DIMM Module), and the samples can be also be stored on a 128 MB 3.3 volt Smartmedia card. The unit is also able to store on two 128 MB Smartmedia cards, if you have larger than 256 MB DATA in its user memory. There are tricks from user forum sites that have found ways to go beyond this limitation using xD-Picture Cards as other means for storage.
An effective way to combat errors, regardless of their source, is negative feedback. A feedback loop including the output stage can be made using a simple integrator. To include the output filter, a PID controller is used, sometimes with additional integrating terms. The need to feed the actual output signal back into the modulator makes the direct generation of PWM from a
source unattractive. Mitigating the same issues in an amplifier without feedback requires addressing each separately at the source. Power supply modulation can be partially canceled by measuring the supply voltage to adjust signal gain before calculating the PWM and distortion can be reduced by switching faster. The output impedance cannot be controlled other than through feedback.
A typical HTIB generally consists of a central receiver unit which usually contains a DVD player (some systems separate the DVD player into a separate unit), a multi-channel power amplifier and a series of speakers for surround sound use, generally including a subwoofer. Some HTIB systems also have a radio tuner or an Internet-based streaming audio platform (e.g. Spotify). The least expensive systems usually have a passive subwoofer, which is amplified by the receiver unit. HTIB systems do not include a television set or monitor with which to display the visual material or a stand to place the receiver unit on. Beside auxiliary inputs, many of them are equipped today with HDMI with ARC, optical and
The optional DVR station plays back video in DVD quality resolution through the composite, S-video, RGB or YPbPr video outputs with the audio in stereo or 5.1 surround sound through the
output. An external harddrive can be attached to the DVR station via a USB hub to increase the storage capacity. The DVR feature has an infrared emitter that can control many different brands of TV's, cable boxes, and satellite boxes. An online TV guide can show scheduled broadcasts which you can set to be downloaded and viewed at a later time. The DVR station also comes with a qwerty remote control to surf the web or to use the TV Program Guide directly on a TV screen. Note: The online TV guide service has been discontinued in North America.
Multichannel audio, like DOLBY (like
connections), may be supported on SCART connection, through data pins 10, 12, 14. However, not all devices are compatible with this standards, therefore it remains rarely used, as there is no standard regarding connection, and it may be different from a manufacturer to another. Some Home Cinema Systems equipped with SCART connection, could play the sound of the TV set by hooking the audio output of he TV'S SCART and sending it to the input pins of the SCART on the home cinema, somehow identical with the HDMI-ARC connection, input-output on the same cable (on some of these home cinemas, this SCART input was selectable), and sometimes with DOLBY, if available on data pins 10, 12,14, but to the present day, this feature is rare, mainly because of the advent on HDMI with ARC compatibility. However, SCART remains common in audio mainly with mono and stereo signals and sometimes DOWNMIX DOLBY 2 Channels, creating somehow a surround effect on the TV Sets speakers, if the TV set is stereo and allows such signals. Also, some TV sets and Players (DVD, Blu-ray, or even set top boxes) can support on scart DOLBY 2 CHANNEL or DOLBY VIRTUAL, but in rare cases.
