This is a limited model aiming for top quality as the gold version of CD-94.
The D/A converter is equipped with a 16-bit D/A converter LSI, TDA1541, which operates with 4-times oversampling unique to the CD developer, and all digital decoders are 16-bit.
In addition, the TDA1541 is an L-R independent dual DAC equipped with a D/A converter exclusively for Lch and Rch. Therefore, phase shift between right and left is eliminated up to ultra-high frequencies, and wide-band characteristics and dynamic range up to 30 kHz are achieved.
The CDM-1 mechanism used in the CD drive mechanism is tuned up and mounted.
The possibility of sound quality degradation due to vibration is eliminated by improving rigidity by adding a reinforcing rib and installing a pre-amplifier for laser signal separately.
Equipped with a digital output that can be digitally transmitted to a separate-type D/A converter such as the CDA-94.
The optical output and 75 ohm coaxial output are standardized by the Digital Audio Interface format and are compatible with all D/A converters with input terminals of the same format.
The circuit layout takes into account the interference between digital and analog circuits and eliminates noise.
As a countermeasure against vibration and resonance, we have adopted a heavy die cast for the chassis, a 3 mm thick steel plate for the bottom plate, and Portland cement is filled in the space inside the large insulator.
In addition to the CD Filing Bank FTS, which can permanently store 150 CDs, it is equipped with functions such as shuffle play by remote control.
