The important features of the PLAYER II include 4 digital inputs (XLR, coaxial, optical and USB) and the USB input works according to the latest asynchronous 24/192 technology.
The PLAYER II is not only a top class CD TOP Loader, but also an externally usable D / A converter, which has both a coaxial and an asynchronous USB input for HD audio and DSD. Via these inputs, e.g. a laptop, MAC or PC, but also another digital source device.
The heart of the PLAYER II is the new CD Pro-8 transport, which has been embedded in a massive, resonance-optimized ALU block. The excellent sounding D / A converter used in the PLAYER II works on the sophisticated 32/384 upsampling principle. For optimal connection, the PLAYER II therefore has symmetrical outputs.
