This CD player is not just a product; it is a crowning achievement that redefines what can be accomplished within the parameters of the Red Book CD format, currently lauded as the pinnacle of digital music.
A refined iteration of the CD1.1x model, the CD 2.1x/II encapsulates advancements that set it apart. Their dedication to sourcing and integrating superior components is evident.

Its DAC is built around the formidable Philips 1543 16-bit multi-bit digital-to-analog converter chip. Furthermore, the analogue output stage proudly showcases the unparalleled 6111WA miniature triode in tandem with their own Copper foil capacitors. Such an ensemble of components, curated with their legendary precision, brings forth a sonic experience that is both pristine and musical.
Beyond its internal wizardry, the CD 2.1x/II wears its elegance on the outside too. Every component is ensconced within a compact, robust chassis – a design that not only speaks of durability but also of a minimalist aesthetic that seamlessly integrates into any decor.
