The Evolution of a Success...
Based on the CD-S6, which was one of our best CD-players for almost one century, we have decidedto develop this device further technically and to improve it naturally.In the design of the tubeLine (just a little higher in comparison to its predecessor) the new CD-S7 is presented. In the inner structure, however the “new” one differentiates itself basically from its predecessor.Thus a Sanyo drive ensures a clean and improved scanning of your CDs. The Sanyou Chip DA11 ensures the reading of the data; the software belonging to it has been developed by us.
The PCM1796 of the trademark Burr-Brown functions as D/A-converter. The result:clear better soundwith even clear better dynamics as well as improved decoder-precision (24bit, 192 kHz).
The analogous signal will be processed in a fully balanced manner. All the 4 signal linesare provided with their own filter and own amplifier unit. This improves the sound clarityand increases the dynamic range.
The CD-S7 would not be located in the tubeLine,when no tubes would be used. Thus we now use 2 tubes of the type 12AX7 in the si-gnaling pathway. The sound will become warmer and silkier through this; however it willnot have a washed out effect or display any obscurities in the sound. No, transparencyand spatiality will be clear after the first sounds.We have also took a look on the supply of power and voltage and made improvementsagain. A new oversized toroidal transformer always provides sufficient services, and a6Z4 tube ensures the stability in the voltage.Components of well-known manufacturers, gold-plated tube sockets and gold-platedconnections round off the overall picture of the CD-S7.
