The Puccini is considered to be one of the finest single-box SACD players ever released and that is evidenced by the number of professional reviewers who use it as their reference. While it was discontinued at the end of 2015 the Puccini is still winning awards from the press. The most recent accolade was from August 2016 in which Neil Gader of TAS gave the Puccini a Golden Ear award. In his comments he noted:In fact, long after I’d returned the Puccini to dCS, I remembered what made its sonic signature so special—a warmth, resolution, and transparency that seemed to redefine what it meant to listen to digital.
If you are a listener who is well invested in the SACD format, this is one of the two or three players I’d hate to be without.
In addition to CD and SACD playback the Puccini includes 2 RCA / SPDIF inputs which support formats up to 24/192 as well as DSD.
While the Puccini on its own is excellent it’s even better when paired with the matching U-Clock. In addition to the sonic benefits of an external master clock the U-Clock also includes a USB input which will allow the Puccini to interface with a computer-based source. We have a matching U-Clock available so if you are interested in both pieces please contact us for a package price.
This Puccini SACD player has the latest software loaded and also includes the optional DSD up sampling feature.
This unit is in excellent cosmetic condition and perfect functional condition. There is one pencil-tip-sized mark on the faceplate, but this is very difficult to see up close and pretty much impossible from a couple of feet away.
This item will ship in its original packaging and will include all original documentation and accessories.
