The 2.0 version offers 24/192 and uses the Crystal 4392 chip in fully balanced, dual-differential mode. Transport duties are handled by Sony's CDM14BL sled.
In keeping with Cairn's trademark balanced approach, 4V XLR and 2V RCA analog outputs are provided, as is one 16/44 Toslink digital. The azure-on-black circular display is très chic while low contrast. It extinguishes by remote command or via automatic time delay after the last input prompt.
Measuring 17" x 3.6" x 12.2" WxHxD and weighing in at 18 lbs, the Cairn is very well made and highly attractive in an understatedly classy way, with the grained anodized silver of the fascia extending to the top cover that wraps around the sides and flanges to the base to avoid unsightly screws on the sides.
Includes factory remote and power cord.
Condition is excellent both cosmetically and operationally.
