Favard Anniversary

Replaced by CD-1000.

NO OTHER CD PLAYER IN THE WORLD MATCHES THE FAVARD

Favard is the top player of the state-of-the-art Diamond Line, featuring top class design in digital and analogue stage, a unique twelve tubes design and the most massive power supply ever made for a digital source.

DIAMOND LINE: THE HIGHEST AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY AND AUDIO COMPONENTS

The transport mechanism model JPL2580 is the drawer type supplied by Austrian Stream Unlimited, a highly professional supplier specialized in High-End audio spare parts. It is made of aluminium and it enables the smoothest possible rotational stability reducing the speed fluctuation as well.

Using superior class components, such as high quality capacitors and resistors, Favard redefines the standards in the world of digital players. It is powered by a double battery automatic rechargeable power supply and eight linear transformers inductive design driving four tubes working as rectifiers. The double battery power supply drives the analogue stage to achieve the best noiseless audio purity. The massive eight linear transformers inductive power supply drive the Class A analogue tube output stage. Moreover, the inductive power supply drives all the digital stages and the mechanic transport guaranteeing perfect stability control.

Favard features a twelve tube design; eight tubes are dedicated to the Class A output dual mono gain stage while the other four rectify the power supply to achieve an incredibly smooth audio signal. The very high-mass chassis is able to control the energy of the vibration’s feedback featuring a high-class cosmetic solution that perfectly matches the Demidoff units as well.

The Favard is available in a variety of options being a digital transport unit only but it is even offered as a fully equipped unit featuring DAC solution with four coaxial digital inputs and one USB 24/192 High Speed asynchronous port conveniently converting the signal of any other digital source offering best top-level solutions. Optionally featuring an exclusive atomic master clock virtually eliminating the digital audio jitter problem that creates phase error signal.
