For more information on any of the CD Players that we stock, please contact us.
Pro-Ject / CD Box DS
The CD Box DS is a high end CD player designed for dedicated play back of the “Red Book Standard” of audio CD developed by Philips.
Built with a high quality, durable CD drive that is controlled by a Blue Tiger Servo board, the CD Box DS is designed to read CDs perfectly without need for any error correction and minimal jitter.
The CD Box DS’s on board D/A converter boasts a Burr Brown 24-bit/192kHz chip, with eight-times oversampling that delivers a true high end quality for play back of your CDs.
An easy to read high contrast dot matrix and a handy credit card remote make the CD Box DS simple and a joy to use.
Sugden / Fusion 21
The Fusion 21 is designed to compliment both the A21 and A21SE Signature integrated amplifiers. Utilising a high speed transport mechanism and on board memory, the Fusion 21 is a technically advanced CD player. To reduce jitter and control errors during play back there is a dedicated transceiver circuit, this re-formats data prior to the digital to analogue converter.
A unique conversion method is employed without oversampling or filtering in the digital domain, instead we chose an analogue filter allowing a very wide bandwidth.
Important as technology is in the digital domain, the potential can only be realised if the analogue output is capable of producing a high quality sound. The use of a class A output stage and trans-impedance amplifier ensures superb sound. A useful additional feature of the Fusion 21 is a digital input. This allows the connection of an eternal source like a music streamer or AV component.
Roksan / K3 CD Di Player
The K3 CD Di joins the K3 range as a combination CD Player and Digital-Analogue Converter (DAC), opening up a K3 system to more music sources than ever before.
The idea behind the CD Di is to provide audio enthusiasts with a high-quality digital source that will not only play an existing CD library to the expected audiophile standard, but will also host an array of other digital sources as one audiophile ‘hub’. By incorporating both the CD player and the DAC into one box, users can both save space by avoiding the need for extra boxes and guarantee consistent audio performance across all digital platforms.
The CD section of the CD Di is based on the established K3 CD. Incorporating premium components and first-class circuit design, the K3 CD Di delivers the same almost analogue sound quality when playing music from a CD.
The DAC section of the CD Di features both optical and coaxial digital inputs that are capable of handling data streams up to 24-bit/192kHz, so a variety of alternative digital players can also be connected to it. By utilising these inputs, other digital sources can benefit from the highly coveted sound quality and the superlative signal-handling that Roksan electronics are renowned for. The digital inputs are selectable via the use of a three position rocker switch underneath the unit.
Aesthetically the CD Di perfectly matches the rest of the K3 series, except for the inclusion of a bi-coloured LED that sits underneath the front plate. The LED illuminates to highlight which digital source the unit is currently set to (Coaxial = White LED, Optical = Blue LED). This adds an extra element to the product that is both striking and appealing.
Usability is effortlessly simple with the supplied system remote, and the usual array of CD Playback modes (shuffle, repeat etc.) can all be accessed easily from the comfort of your listening position.
The K3 CD Di brings all your digital music into one place, delivering one consistent, highly-regarded sound performance to your hi-fi system.
