Audio Note (UK) CD5.1X CD Player
For enthusiasts of superior audio quality, we’d like to introduce to you the CD5.1x CD Player, a distinguished member of Audio Note (UK)’s Level Three Red Book range. This creation isn’t just a CD player; it’s a testament to their relentless pursuit of unparalleled digital audio reproduction, aiming to redefine what’s possible within a singular, integrated design.
Central to the CD5.1x’s formidable performance is the top-loading Philips CD Pro 2LF mechanism. Yet, at Audio Note (UK), they never settle for the already outstanding. They’ve enhanced this mechanism in-house, making meticulous modifications that have ascended its performance to an unparalleled territory. By refining both its mechanical and electrical facets, Audio Note (UK) ensures that their CD5.1x extracts every bit of potential from the CD format.
Powering this CD player is no ordinary supply. It’s a carefully articulated valve rectified and regulated system. With the inclusion of a 6X5 rectifier tube and an ECL82 voltage regulator tube, they guarantee a pristine power delivery, practically eliminating noise and distortion. By integrating vacuum tubes into the power supply, they infuse the playback with their signature warm, musical essence, a characteristic many have come to cherish from their creations.
The analogue output stage is no less impressive, employing a combination of 1 x 5814a and 1 x 5687WB vacuum tubes. These tubes work harmoniously with their globally lauded output transformers, which boast SHiB (Super Hi-B) cores coupled with Copper for both primary and secondary pathways. Complementing this design are their proprietary 0.5 Watt and 1 Watt non-magnetic tantalum resistors placed in crucial positions, and their specially crafted foil/Mylar and electrolytic capacitors.
Audio Note (UK)’s commitment to excellence is further accentuated with the CD player’s integration of their exclusive digital transformers. These are meticulously crafted in-house, with Silver winding for the transport component and Copper for the DAC facet, ensuring a digital-to-analog conversion that is both precise and pure.
The CD5.1x isn’t merely a CD player; it is an example of their dedication to perfecting audio reproduction. By redefining the boundaries of digital playback, Audio Note (UK) offers you an auditory experience that is transcendent, immersive, and unparalleled.
