CD 2.1x
  • CD 2.1x

    The CD2.1x was specifically designed and engineered for the best sonic performance rather than technical specifications. Although the CD2.1x is a digital component (there is no avoiding this unfortunately!), it will bring a new level of musicality to your CD’s and is fatigue free during extended listening periods.


    The CD2.1x uses the revolutionary and currently exclusive Audio Note digital technology dubbed the 1x oversampling direct from disc circuit topology. The ultimate version of this technology is found in the extremely expensive DAC5 Signature, and we have taken great to ensure that as much of the inherent advantages of the topology have been retained in the sound of the CD2.1x. 


    The technology dispenses with all the correction measures inherent in all other D-A converters and presents the digital signal directly to the converter after reformatting. This allow you to hear what is actually recorded on each disc, rather than, as has been the case up to now, some technically and cosmetically altered version, as a result the reproduction is more reminiscent of a master tape in quality.


    Not surprisingly for an Audio Note product, the CD uses valve technology, implemented using traditional Audio Note techniques, of simple signal paths incorporating no correction or feedback operating the valves at their most linear operating points for best sound and longevity.


    Both front controls and remote. This highly musical player is available with a face plate in either brushed aluminium or polished black acrylic to match other products in the Audio Note range.
