Dune HD Pro 4K II Plus
« on: September 21, 2020, 08:03:04 PM »
They are a bit later than originally said but here it is "HD Pro 4K Plus II"
https://www.dune-hd.com/products/dune-hd-pro-4k-plus-II
Now waiting for price and availability? Read $460,- and end oktober to begin november somewhere.
Frankly always liked the Plus version a lot more and this is no exception.

The improvements are well specified compared with the previous Plus model. Not mentioned is that also 1x USB2 port and the SD-Card slot were actually dropped too.

Interesting unexpected specification (asked Dune for it myself):
Stereo and multichannel SACD playback
You can play top quality Super Audio CD (DSD) music files in all any popular formats  (ISO, DFF, DSF), including both stereo and multichannel files (with even DST decompression). Multichannel SACD files will be output as multichannel PCM to HDMI. The next and final step would be optional DSD native output.

Hardly can imagine MCH SACD via HDMI is only for this model?
Even stranger the bundled remotes are now labeled "discontinued" as accessories. Or is this to make them exclusive for this model?
The Dune strategy occasionally escapes me but coming with Dual HDMI Output does make a lot of sense with many (even recent) AMP's not passing HDR10+.

Missing on the audio front is support for DVD-Audio with playback of the high resolution MLP audio tracks.
For now only the DVD-Video compatible audio tracks can be played (if present). Also applies to Zidoo equivalent players by the way.

Asked Dune these 3 questions and will share their answers here:
Hello,
We will be able to answer your questions about Pro 4K Plus II after production is completed and when they go on sale.

I see it will be sold here too:

Small mistake in the specifications there: I don't see that SD-Card slot, neither RS232 (previous model had one indeed).

And another small correction: External USB is specified differently on 2 locations actually both being almost correct.
In fact it is better than specified on either place.  ;)

External Storage should be according Dune:
USB 3.1 x1,  USB Type-C x1, USB 2.0 x2
- USB 3.0 Type-C can be used in Host and Slave modes typically but mostly is used as Slave
- 3 USB ports are on the back and one USB2.0 is to be found on the front

Sorry but I am precise in those things. 8)
