Opus 21 CD System
This Opus 21 series of components consist of a CD player and power center. Opus 21 CD Compact Disc Player
The Opus 21 CD Player is the culmination of 10 years of digital audio development. It couples our refined multi-bit DAC design with an ATAPI-bus drive that enables ideal low-jitter design and reads all discs, including CD-R/W, SACD-hybrid, and copy-protected discs, with ease. By moving the power supply and display to a second chassis, the critical audio circuitry is free of interference, bringing out more detail than ever. Three-dimensional circuit construction, while more costly, dramatically reduces signal path for unparalleled precision.
We use the finest multi-bit DACs available, as we have yet to find a superior alternative DAC architecture. Our custom DSP-based digital filter uses synchronous upsampling, as we have found that asynchronous designs create audible artifacts. By implementing volume-control in the analog domain, full performance of the converters is maintained independent of listening level.
Opus 21 PS (Power Centre)
- 4 BurrBrown PCM1704 24-bit converters
- 16x digital filter upsamples to 705 kHz/24-bit
- analog-domain volume control • Balanced and single-ended outputs
- digital input operates up to 96 kHz/24-bit enhancing two-channel home theater
The power centre serves not only as an outboard power supply, but also as a central controller for the full Opus 21 CD system.
Only a single power cord is required for the (2) piece system.
This player in excellent condition. Original remote, manual, power cord, umbilical cord, and crate included.
