The Opus 21 CD Player:
The CD 21 has won many awards including Hi FI Choice’s Editor’s Choice, 5 Stars from What Hi FI and the Golden Ear Award from TAS. I can tell you from personal experience it out performs the Ayre CX-7e and Naim CDX2 and compares to the performance of the Wadia 861! It is also worth mentioning the CD 21 has a coaxial digital input which can be used to connect sources such as an iPod or Satellite Radio to the it’s Burr Brown 1704 DACs! It uses the same 4 Burr Brown 1704 multi bit DACs as the Naim CD555, Meridian 808 and Wadia 861 Reference CD Players.
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 TEAC-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.
• 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
