SL Audio A/S, the highly renowned high-end audio manufacturer from Denmark, has released its Lyngdorf Audio CD-2. This is not your ordinary CD player, it a pure audio CD player and the first of a new series of products which includes fully digital amplifiers with RoomPerfectTM, hence the new visual appearance of the CD-2 shows the new contemporary design direction for the brand.
Designed, developed and manufactured in Denmark, the CD-2 provides the unsurpassed performance which is expected from a Lyngdorf Audio product. With the experience gained from the multiple award winning Lyngdorf Audio digital amplifiers and CD players, this is aimed at being one of the best sounding pure audio CD players on the market.
"We are proud of introducing the CD-2 as the first product of our new series. By using the best techniques and components possible we truly believe to have created one of the best CD players there is on the market" said Thomas Birkelund CEO of the company.
The CD-2 is built as if it was a heavy amplifier. A thick vibration free aluminum chassis frame with vibration damped lid gives it a tank-like construction. It is equipped with Intersample Clipping Correction (ICC) which restores clipped samples back to their original shape. Low-noise design techniques are applied to upsample the digital output, and the D/A converter section is the same as in the legendary Millennium MK IV amplifier and it is being used to drive a high quality, single ended and balanced output stage.
The in-house designed power supply is extremely well regulated, filtered and decoupled to provide a low noise and low impedance supply to the digital and analog circuitry. With individual supplies from four independent secondary windings on the transformer the analog and digital supplies are kept separated to minimize digital noise in the analog circuit.
The Lyngdorf Audio CD-2 is available January 2013 and is expected to retail for EUR 2390,-.
