Opera Audio Consonance Reference CD-2.2 Tube CD Player, Complete w/Box & Remote


Surprisingly good sounding CD player from Opera Audio which must have something to do with the 6H30 tube in the circuitry.

Comes in a gorgeous wood case which stands it apart from ordinary black box CD players.

There's also a beefy power supply with a large toroidal transformer and plenty of filtration. High quality components throughout with attention to detail, placement, and layout.

Tested in our lab and working as it should.

RCD2.2 linear Nos Tube CD-player
The appeal of non-oversampling DACs lies in the less is more audio ideal, the fewer components there are in the signal path the more of the signal should get through.

The NOS DAC was conceived by Ryohei Kusunoki in 1996. He wanted to find a way of avoiding time smear in digital audio and, therefore, considered the digital filter to be the biggest cause of this problem. As it's the digital filter that does the over oversampling, he built a DAC that did away it altogether and used an analogue filter after the DAC.

Linear technology (applied to CD player):
- Non-oversampling, no digital filter
- Passive I/V conversion In progression
- Short pass length, less number of parts
