If you have questions please call me at 716-688-3527. Questions through Audiogon are not reliable and I have not been able to answer a few of them.
Now about the Lyngdorf: This player sounds amazing with analog outputs and also makes an excellent transport. It has a re-read drive. Lyngdorf' was the first player to identify the recordings that have bit values outside the Redbook standard and to put those bits back in the dynamic range of the Redbook standard so the bits are scaled correctly. The other player I am aware of that does this is the MSB with their harshness correction. Certain computer audio programs now do the same.The digital harshness on peaks is eliminated and the sound is more analog.
The output can be set to any sample rate and can be set to upsample any sample rate up to 192 kHz. It aslo has adjustable output gain. The display brightness can be adjusted. Use the CD-1 as a player or an excellent transport into your DAC. It has RCA single ended outpiuts, balanced outputs and can be used as a Transport with optical, coax or AES/EBU balanced digital outputs.
This player is in perfect condition , like new with manual and original box and remote.
More from the Lyngdorf website:
The CD-1 is a pure CD transport/player designed with the best design techniques and components possible. Used with any of the Lyngdorf amplifiers, the CD-1 provides the sort of unsurpassed performance that only comes from complementing components.
The CD-1 is designed with the all the experience gained from designing the Lyngdorf digital amplifier products.
Low-noise design techniques are applied to carefully upsample the digital output. The digital output is available in SPDIF, Toslink or AES format.
The D/A converter section is the same as in the legendary Millennium amplifier and it is being used to drive a high quality, single ended and balanced output stage.
The intuitive push-to-enter user interface is used for daily operation such as play, pause, skip etc but also for more sophisticated use such as setting all parameters of the CD-1, e.g. sample rate or the level of the audio signal output.
All operations can be of course accessed with the included remote control which also operates the Lyngdorf amplifiers.
And if you have a Lyngdorf true digital amplifier you can shut down all analog sections to turn the CD-1 into a transport only to obtain the best possible performance from the CD-1.
Some reproduce what is on the disc - the Lyngdorf CD-1 re-plays the music on the disc, no more, no less . . .
