Sonic Frontiers SFD-1 MKII Digital Processor, Vintage Tube DAC with HDCD Chipset

$1,799

I'm always surprised with the parts selection and build quality of the Sonic Frontiers DAC's. They sure knew how to make the most out of the redbook CD format even early on in its lifetime.

This example is no exception. Exquisite build quality, top shelf components, and an intelligent well thought-out layout.

Best of all it uses tubes in its output stage to take a bit of the edge out of your CD's.

Tested thoroughly and working as it should.

Includes rare original packing materials, gloves, tube sleeves, and tools.

THE HDCD PROCESS
The SFD-1 MKII includes a free HDCD-encoded sampler CD to demonstrate the HDCD process. This process is a true advancement in digital audio reproduction, providing one of the single greatest improvements in digital audio since the introduction of the CD format more than a decade ago. 

This sophisticated encoding/decoding system greatly reduces both additive and subtractive distortions in digital recordings, providing a resolution and freedom from distortion equal to that of analog recordings.

In addition, the HDCD decoder’s internal digital filter pro- vides significant sonic improvements to non-HDCD source material as well.
