CD-1000

High-End CD-Player

CD-1000 is a state-of-the-art CD-player that integrates digital stage and analogue stage in one, elegant source.

In addition to being a CD-player, CD-1000 integrates also the DAC function featuring S/PDIF Coaxial and TOS-Optical digital inputs. The high-resolution D/A stage is entrusted to the top of the range converter from Burr Brown. It’s possible to choose between PCM1796 and PCM1792. The S/PDIF coaxial and TOS optical digital inputs are managed by the AKM receiver up to the frequency of 192kHz. Moreover, an USB port with a customised processor is available on demand. All these components confer a complete versatility which permits various uses of the cd-player: in addition to listening to CDs, it can be connected to the TV/DVD-Player via the coaxial and optical connections and it can be used for audio streaming from the computer via the optional USB port.

The Aluminium transport mechanism custom made in Austria drawer type based, JPL2580 is one of the best worldwide, provides a guaranteed maximum stability of rotation supplying a digital signal with extremely low jitter levels.

CD-1000 optionally features a digital volume control stage to drive power amplifiers or active speakers directly. All the information of the CD-player like track numbers and time passed is always shown on the big O-Led 3D display. The output stage is solid state, fully balanced and uses operational circuits with very low noise and distortion from Burr Brown in Dual-Mono configuration.

Powered by the GN Dual-Mono power supply with two incapsulated toroidal transformers custom made in Italy, the absolute quality of these components guarantees ultra low dispersion and optimal energetic performance. All of this is perceivable as natural clean, detailed and accurate sound.

All of this is perceivable during the audition as absolute cleanness, accurate focus and details. 
The air vents are an example of the integration of design and functionality which take form from our multi awarded PH-10 phono stage and feature all the Gold Note electronics, turning them immediately recognisable.
