CD Players

CD Player

Compact Discs aren't done yet, and strangely remain one of the great enigmas of Hi-Fi. 35 years after their introduction, we're still finding more ways to dig extra detail out of our CDs. Sure, everyone hears the Hi-Rez 192 super audio buzz words, but until you've actually heard a truly amazing CD player, you'll never know how good the humble red book can sound.

  • Bryston BOT-1 CD Transport

    Bryston’s BDP digital music players let you enjoy all the benefits of a digital audio library without the frustration of a computer. Until now, you still needed a computer to rip CDs - a frustrating endeavour for many. With the introduction of our new BOT-1, you can banish computers from your listening room for good. Take full control over ripping parameters and meta-data using our Manic Moose web interface on your tablet or smartphone, or let the BDP do it automatically and rip with a single button press on the front panel of the BDP. CD playback buffers a few seconds of CD audio in the system memory correcting timing errors common to all traditional CD players making CD playback sound better than ever.

    The BOT-1 is not a traditional CD transport as it requires a BDP to operate. With the world’s largest lossless digital audio library still contained in CDs it’s easy to understand why the addition of CD ripping, playback, and burning to your BDP grants you access to the most music available. At only 5.7” wide, yet sharing aesthetic build quality with other C-Series units, the BOT-1 fits nicely into your rack along side your BDP.

  • Cambridge Audio 851C

    I think it's safe to say that manufacturers don't see a massive future in the compact disc. It must be getting harder to sell a standalone CD player these days, so we are seeing more and more products like this: CD players with a built in DAC. But Troy, I hear you say, "CD players have always had a built in DAC." Well, yes, yes they have, but but we're now seeing CD players shipping with digital inputs so you can pipe other digital sources through your DAC. Learn More

  • Denon DCD1600NE

    Denon is one of the rare audio brands that continued to actively develop Hi-Fi components and accumulate, refine, and pass down Hi-Fi audio technologies. The DCD-1600NE focuses on achieving the essence of a disc player: ultra-high precision in reading discs and supplying high-quality audio signals to the amp. To achieve this, the signal paths are as short as possible and the whole circuitry is minimized. The engineers also redesigned the disc drive mechanism brackets and the chassis to eliminate vibration, the great enemy of disc players, and achieve ultra-vibration-resistant performance. The information on the disc is now read with impeccable accuracy and a clean, high-grade signal is supplied to the DCD-1600NE’s Advanced AL32 Processing Plus circuitry. Besides CD and Super Audio CD playback, the DCD features playback of audio recordings up to PCM192/24 or DSD5.6 recorded on a DVD R/RW for full flexibility and extended access to high resolution audio.

  • Rega Saturn R CD player ... warmth and musical maturity

    Is it a CD player, or a DAC in disguise? The latest iteration of the Saturn looks to the future, looking towards that day when CD is no longer top of the digital food chain. Thanks to a suite of digital inputs including twin coax, optical and asynchronous USB, the Saturn will still be producing music long after you stop spinning CD's. How does it sound? Rega's high standards are in full effect here, with a sweet lyrical mid-range and smooth tonal balance. We're quite smitten and we're sure you will be too.

    Rab uses a legacy version of this player on his personal Ambience loudspeake stereo system and found it to be an overwhelmingly positive upgrade when it was introduced to replace an older Cambridge model. The music was restored to warmth with body and engagement ... rather like a mythical Vinyl/valve expectation.

  • Bryston BCD-3 CD Player

    Who says CD playback is dead? Although high resolution digital downloads dominate the attention of audiophiles, many music lovers have hundreds or thousands of CDs that require the finest playback equipment to sound their best. Though universal disc players or DVD players can playback CDs, they certainly won't resolve the full dynamic range and nuance the medium is capable of. Such players inherently compromise CD playback to support additional formats. The BCD-3 was engineered explicitly for the purpose of making your redbook CDs sound amazing.

    Digital audio read from the CD is sent to a dual-balanced DAC chipset where it is converted to analog. The output stage is built with Bryston's proprietary fully balanced class-A discrete operational amplifiers. A professional grade optical disc transport reads the discs, and an ultra precise master clock synchronizes both. Zero jitter, superb linearity, and the best sound quality CDs have to offer are hallmarks of the new Bryston BCD-3. Connect the BCD-3 to your home network to control it with our web based user interface, or with a home automation system. You can also control it via IR with a Bryston BR-2 or universal remote control.
