The drawer type based aluminium transport mechanism JPL2800 custom made in Austria is one of the best worldwide. It provides a guaranteed maximum stability of rotation supplying a digital signal with extremely low jitter levels.
CD-1000 optionally features a digital volume control stage to drive power amplifiers or active speakers directly. All the information of the CD-player like track numbers and time passed is always shown on the big O-Led 3D display.
The output stage is solid state, fully balanced and uses operational circuits with very low noise and distortion from Burr Brown in Dual-Mono configuration.
Powered by the GN Dual-Mono power supply with two incapsulated toroidal transformers custom made in Italy, the absolute quality of these components guarantees ultra low dispersion and optimal energetic performance. All of this is perceivable as natural clean, detailed and accurate sound.
