More Information


The Emotiva CD-100 balanced CD player delivers real audiophile sound quality, combining a precision digital CD transport and superb quality DAC in one convenient attractive package. The BasX CD-100 combines a precision digital CD transport and a superb quality DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) in one convenient and attractive package. The advanced engineering, quality construction, and powerful laser engine in the CD-100 ensure true audiophile performance; whether you use the CD-100 as a transport or as a complete audio source component.

On the outside, the solid aluminium face plate and steel chassis on the CD-100 combine elegant good looks and rugged reliability. The precision tray-loading disc mechanism handles your discs gently and carefully, and the CD-100 can be operated by either the full function remote control or the front panel transport buttons. Inside, careful layout and extra shielding provide even more protection against interference, vibration, and jitter. And the new upgraded DAC is powered by a sophisticated, well filtered multi-stage power supply, allowing the CD-100 to deliver truly phenomenal audio quality. Whether you use the BasX CD-100 as a precision bit-perfect digital CD transport, or connect the analogue output of its advanced DAC to your preamp, we’re certain the CD-100 will elevate your CD listening experience to the next level.
