Audio Note AN-CD2
Vacuum Tube Compact Disc Player
The CD2 was specifically designed and engineered for the best sonic performance rather than technical specifications.
The CD2 uses the revolutionary and currently exclusive Audio Note digital technology dubbed the 1 x oversampling direct from disc circuit topology. The ultimate version of this technology is found in the extremely expensive DAC5 Signature, and we have taken great to ensure that as much of the inherent advantages of the topology have been retained in the sound of the CD2.
The technology dispenses with all the correction measures inherent in all other DA converters and presents the digital signal directly to the converter after reformatting. This allow you to hear what is actually recorded on each disc, rather than, as has been the case up to now, some technically and cosmetically altered version, as a result the reproduction is more reminiscent of a master tape in quality.
