Few specialist manufactures have ever stepped up to the plate and succeeded where development of digital disc playback is concerned. The technological know-how required for the successful design of high performance digital audio sources is vast. With more than twenty-five years of digital audio experience, not to mention global recognition of its efforts, Arcam is proud to announce the arrival of it’s newest disc player, the CDS27.
To ensure the CDS27’s music performance meets “reference” standards the class leading TI/Burr Brown PCM1794 digital to analogue converter (DAC) is used. This device, coupled with a linear phase Bessel output filter and high precision re-clocking system results in a level of audio quality required in a dedicated audiophile CD player. Even the CDS27’s power supply has been specially designed for outright performance. Discreet sub-regulated power supplies on the drive, audio and DAC boards deliver significant benefits to the overall performance of each element and thus allow each section to work truly independently and without interference.
UPnP compatibility allows for effortless integration into networks allowing the CDS27 to access stored content with ease.
As with all its FMJ devices, Arcam has gone to incredible lengths to maximise the performance of this next generation player. As an example the CDS27 benefits from a critically damped cover and chassis to virtually eliminate damaging microphonic vibration from reaching the sensitive electronics inside.
The CDS27 is designed with a single purpose; to deliver the very best music experience for discerning owners. It also features a full suite of discrete IR, IP and RS232 codes making it perfect for integration within a high performance home cinema installation.
The CDS27 is designed in the UK and is available in a discrete black finish.
