GOLD NOTE CD 1000 CD PLAYER MK2
Great sound comes from great technology
LOOKS AMAZING, SOUNDS EVEN BETTER
CD-1000 is a state-of-the-art cd player that integrates digital stage and analogue stage in one, elegant source.
Featuring a top class 24bit 192kHz high-resolution D/A converter with S/PDif coaxial and TOS optical digital inputs - having an AKM digital receiver - and one USB 24bit 192kHz port - to get the best out of your computer.
The Aluminium transport mechanism made in Austria (drawer type JPL2580) reaches perfect rotational stability speed fluctuation free.
CD-1000 features our renovated output stage called Zero-Clock™ for effective jitter reduction. Zero-Clock™ powers a T.I. CDCE906 Master Clock Generator that reshapes the clock every single time music plays.
A COMPLETE SOURCE FOR DIGITAL, HIGH QUALITY MUSIC
CD-1000 optionally features a pre-amp stage based on a PGA single resistor with double mono volume control, a solution we introduced on the Demidoff line of amplifiers that can drive power amplifiers directly and with great results.
Information are always shown on the elegant O-Led 3D display.
The output stage is solid state, fully balanced with Dual-Mono PCM1792AK D/A converter, the same used in Favard CD player and on the very best digital DAC available today
Powered by the GN Dual-Mono power supply with two transformers to keep the voltage extremely stable on all audio signal paths.
Due to its modular design, 1000 series can be upgraded with external units:
- TUBE-1006 and TUBE-1012 - Class A tube output stage (6 or 12 tubes)
- PSU-1250 and PSU-1100 - super Inductive Power Supply (250W or 100W)
- CLK-1055 (Caesium) and CLK-1037 (Rubidium) - Atomic Master Clock
When equipped with external atomic master clocks, CD-1000 can obliterate jitter: CLK-1055 - made with the heaviest material available on hearth, Caesium - and CLK-1037 - made of Rubidium. Together these clocks can guarantee a fantastic digital signal transfer and exceptional digital phase alignment.
PSU-1250 is a massive inductive multi-transformer capable of 250 Watt, PSU-1100 is capable of 100 Watt: both units work as a virtual battery to enhance CD-1000 performance with a full galvanic insulation from the AC system to shield the unit from RFI and EMI.
