Features
Full-featured Tube Top Loader CD-Player
Class-A triode vacuum-tube output stage for single-ended & balanced operation

Signal Path
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our pre-amplifiers to date have used single-ended pure class-A circuitry. The shorter the signal path is, the less possibility of sonic degradation from various sources, including the wire itself. Even on the circuit boards, the copper traces are kept to a very minimum length. The completely redesigned circuit board provides a more straightforward and direct approach to the signal paths.

Logical sequenced soft-start power up for extended tube life
Warm up function
0dB negative feedback (of any kind )
Ultra short signal path
Simplest direct circuit path for purest musical sound and high reliability
Low output impedance for driving long runs interconnect to an amplifier, and any tube or solid state power amp
No solid state devices in the analog tube output (signal path )
Minimal discrete wiring for optimum signal propagation
No followers or buffers in the signal path
No DC servo that degrades the signal
High quality parts throughout
Fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship
Separate analog output stage for left and right channel
Internal hardware PCM upsampler for CD sources to 24/192K (can be disabled)
Digital input – S/PDIF (RCA), & TosLink
USB input – 24/192 kHz ( asynchronous) and DSD
Digital output – S/PDIF (RCA)

Power Supply
The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration. Separate power transformer windings and filters provide total isolation between the input and output stage which makes this a pure power source and it is a critical attribute for a 6H30 output stage. We also use electrolytic capacitors with much larger storage capacity to make up for the loss in filtering when using resistors in lieu of inductors.

R-Core / Low noise – insulated power transformer for digital & analog
Innovative power supply provides a high speed energy delivery on transients
Separate and isolated power supplies over each stage of amplification
AC power line filter to avoid noise and hash from entering into the unit.
Tube rectification for analog output stage
10 separate voltage regulators

Components
The type of parts used therefore must have a synergistic relationship to the circuit they are placed in. It is this relationship of which type of part to use where, that ranks our products apart from the mass.

Selected, premium quality passive components used in all applications
High speed & high quality audiophile grade coupling capacitors
High quality Special tube sockets with gold pins
Capacitors ( MKP 2% )
High quality – RCA & XLR jack
Gold-plated industrial grade PCB

Mechanical Construction
The high grade aluminum chassis impart a richer, more lustrous tonality with a cleaner back-ground and less hash and grain. All brushed anodized anti-vibration-resonance and non-magnetic chassis’s are fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship.

Backlit function buttons
Modified suspension system to isolate the CD-transport from mechanical vibrations
Anti-vibration magnetic CD-clamp system with dark acrylic CD-LID
AC phase polarity control indicator
The aluminium feet are resonance absorbing types
Metal remote commander
Chassis finish: black / chrome
