Vacuum Tube CD Player RCD-1

The vacuum tube CD player RCD-1 is a high-end device for audiophiles featuring Philips CD-Pro2 LF transport technology and a high-quality Wolfson 8741 stereo DAC 24 bit/192 kHz, with a separate power supply ±12 V. This vacuum tube CD player has a warm tone at par with the best analogue turntables with crystal clear sound fidelity. The capacitors on the signal path are AuriCap and pure silver Mundorf GS signal wire are used.

The vacuum tube CD player RCD-1 is built with top-quality components from AuriCap, Mundorf, Neutrik, etc. The whole chassis is copperized and plasticized. The CD player features a fluorescent vacuum display module with 6 digits and with an optical filter.
The device has a remote control. The power transformer has an EI core.
This is a handmade and unique product. All parts have been carefully selected.
