From Lite Audio, masters at digital reproduction, comes the Lite CD-21 transport. From Pacific Valve, modifications and military grade components that make it state-of-the-art for the audiophile. The Lite CD 21 modified is based on Sony's latest Pro Audio top loading transport, and uses an advanced stabilizer, stand by switch, remote, AES, optical, coax, I2S outputs in both standard 44.1 and 96K sampling rates.
Upsampling is usually a chronic issue for the enthusiast where jitter interference increases due to the complex cabling process of using an outboard upsampler. Upsampling inside the transport has many advantages as precision digital transformers can be used without the concern of external jitter. As a matter of fact, the jitter output on the Lite CD 21 modified is less than 50 pS!
The SONY pro laser assembly along with the advanced stabilizing scheme uses a unique "fan" shaped stabilizer that is light weight yet rigid to keep the disc spinning at a constant speed with maximum resistance to vibrations.
The internal PCB uses the latest in digital transmission technology and high quality wiring are used throughout. The chassis is a rugged and heavy black aluminum that is 1/8" thick and provides proper damping of vibrations. The Lite CD-21 comes with remote control that includes all basic functions.
