EMM Labs CDSA SE CD/SACD player for sale by original owner. It is in beautiful condition (as you can see from the pix) and performs flawlessly. The only reason I’m selling it is to move up the line to the far more expensive XDS1.
Sonically, the CDSA SE is a revelation. Known as “the one-box wonder,” this single-box, dual format player has been lauded by everyone who has reviewed it. In winning two Golden Ear Awards from the Absolute Sound, the CDSA SE was described this way by Harry Pearson:
“Quite simply the best two-channel CD (and two-channel SACD) playback device of the many, many I’ve tested in Sea Cliff over the years. The trick to getting great digital is reducing the multitude of distortions that came part and package with the original transfers and players. This Ed Meitner design comes closer to that goal than any other player I’ve heard, and does so to the point that you can listen with pleasure, and for hours and hours!”
Here are just some of the player’s salient features:
--Meitner’s proprietary discrete dual-differential DAC circuit
--Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT) Technology
--Aerospace-grade composite laminate circuit boards
-- Remote-controllable polarity inversion in the digital domain
--User-selectable rear-panel output voltage control switch
--Balanced and Single-Ended Outputs
This CDSA SE will ship with original everything—remote control, power cord and double box. U.S. sales only: will not ship outside continental U.S.
