We are living in a very different world. The advancement of technologies, digitization, cloud computing and so on. We knew that Computer Audio, Streaming Services have become the new norm of music playback. But we also knew that there is a large group of audiophile and music lover who still believe in spinning a disc. Forget about the hassle of getting the Computer Audio right. Get yourself a good CD Transport, insert your favorite Redbook CD into it and hit the play button. Hurray! Music just flow through the ears.
If you still spin a disc, the denafrips AVATAR CD Transport is built for you.
Leveraging our knowledge and technologies in the Digital Domain, we integrated the famous Philips CDM4/19 laser assembly in the AVATAR. We stocked up 3000pcs of NOS Philips CDM4/19 laser mechanisms to ensure the longevity of the product life-cycle and catered sufficient spares for servicing.
A dozen of Ultra Low Noise, Precision Linear Power Regulars along with dual oversized O-Core Transformers, delivers clean power to the digital circuitry effortlessly.
The digital data retrieved by the CDM4/19 is FIFO buffered and reclocked via the FEMTO Crystal Oscillator. This process eliminates the jitter to negligible level, ensuring the digital output signal are free from the harmful jitter noise.
