Yamaha CX-1000


The CX-1000 is capable of accepting both analog and digital signals from components.

Digital connections may be made by either coaxial connections or optical fibre connections.

Automatic detection of the data rate is performed, using the Hi-Bit technology system, with an 18-bit filtering system and 8 times oversampling, dramatically reducing the possibility of digital 'dropout'.

Any sampling noise is boosted by the three stage filtering process to frequencies so far above the music that there is virtually no chance of it interfering with your listening pleasure.

Excellent linearity is achieved by use of the Hi-Bit twin D/A converters, using a floating system to shift low-level signals away from the area of most likely converter error.

Direct output from the D/A converters results in a pure sound amazingly close to the original.
