Description: Remote-controlled CD player with volume and balance controls, dual-differential 24-bit DACs, unbalanced and balanced analog outputs, AES/EBU (XLR) and S/PDIF (RCA) digital outputs, and S/PDIF (TosLink and RCA) digital inputs. Maximum output level: 2.225V unbalanced, 4.45V balanced. Frequency response: 10Hz-20kHz, +0dB/-0.3dB. Channel separation: >110dB. Dynamic range: 96dB (10Hz-30kHz). Signal/noise: 105dB (10Hz-30kHz). THD: 0.002% at 1kHz, 0dBFS (10Hz-30kHz). Intermodulation: <0.005%. Linearity error: <2dB to below -90dBFS; <2dB to below -102dBFS with 20-bit data. Output impedance: 10 ohms. Volume-control range: -61.2dB to +12dB. Power consumption: 36W. has HDCD decoder. voltage 230v.
Sound "'Silky neutrality'" -- "openness, airiness, and spatial detail galore along with physicality in the bass"; "portrays contrasts in tonality and dynamics with absolute resolution"; "forever neutral and detailed."
can be used as a DAC/digital preamp (has volume control) directly into an amplifier; single-ended and balanced output, the latter taking advantage of the player's fully balanced circuit.
the cd transport is not functioning ( transport can be replaced ) . it has been disengaged and the unit has been used as DAC / preamp. usually this model sells for 2500 + USD. but for this unit the
asking price is 1700 USD. with original box, remote and manuals.
