ERC-3 BALANCED CD PLAYER / TRANSPORT
Complete disc solution: plays all Red Book stereo audio CDs, HDCDs, MP3 CDs, and the Red Book layer of hybrid SACDs.
Audiophile sound quality through superior design: Analog Devices AD1955 high-performance DAC with multiple isolated and well-filtered linear power supplies for analog and digital circuitry.
Versatile analog connectivity: both balanced and unbalanced analog outputs are provided.
Works great as a transport, too; Toslink optical, coax, and AES/EBU outputs provided.
High-quality construction throughout: reinforced steel chassis with additional mass loading to minimize interference and vibration, machined solid aluminum faceplate, a high-reliability tray loading mechanism, and machined gold-plated output connections.
Full front panel controls with blue halo illumination, high visibility alphanumeric status display, and solid machined aluminum remote control.
User selectable universal line voltage operation for 110-120V or 220-240V AC.
Standard trigger input and output.

The Cayin CS-55CD is a stand-alone hybrid tube CD player developed to partner with the CS, MA and LA series integrated amplifiers. D/A conversion is accomplished by a Texas Instruments PCM5101 chipset, while the CS-55CD’s analogue output stage uses a 12AU7 tube. The CS-55CD utilizes a high-speed USB 2.0 receiving and decoding 32bit/384kHz high resolution digital signals together with high-quality audio operational amplifier circuits, with included USB input and remote.
