We may be living in the Internet Streaming age but there's still a place for the humble CD player, especially when its as cutting edge as the TEAC PD-501HR. Equipped with a centrally-mounted, slot-loading mechanism it boasts a unique VACS (Vibration Acoustic Control System) to eliminate stray vibrations, thus minimising read errors and improving sound quality.
The highlight feature is the fact it plays computer-created DVDs encoded with DSD 2.8/5.6Mz audio content. Whats more it processes the content on such discs natively i.e without converting DSD to PCM as most DSD-compatible devices do, thus preserving all the integrity of the original DSD signal.
The onboard D/A converter that works the magic is a Cirrus Logic CS4398, a top spec chip that achieves a dynamic range of 120dB. The same chip also allows replay of conventional software and audio sources (up to 24bit/192kHz resolution).
Under the heavy aluminium cover you'll find top quality, 6-layer glass-epoxy circuit boards, fully separated power supplies for the digital and analogue sections (using Schottky Barrier Diodes for clean, rectified current). Consuming just 11w in operation and 0.1w in standby, the PD-501HR also has genuine eco credentials.
