The CDP offers a fixed level audio output and ideally should be connected to the system using a pre-amplifier (Nagra PL-L or PL-P). It has both symmetrical and asymmetrical analogue outputs as well as a digital output for connection to an external DAC if desired.
The CDP offers a revolutionary front loading design with the playback module mounted securely in the CD drawer. The stability and performance of this precision drawer ensures that the CD is read with perfect reliability. The digital signal path is entirely treated at the 44'100Hz frequency avoiding the possibility of introducing parasitic interference through up sampling techniques.
The brushed aluminium case and the gold plated encapsulation for the digital-to-analog converters ensures that there is no interference of the audio signal from radiation. The CDP uses an external power supply which ensures that there is no alternating current nor high voltages inside the unit. These factors blend to offer the user a pure transparency, and an audio restitution identical to the original recording.
The transport of the CDP is fully remote controlable, and all the transport functions are displayed on the back-lit LCD indicator mounted on the front side of the CD drawer. Feating a traditional Nagra modulometer the CDP allows the integrity of the restitution to be visiually monitored all the time.
The chassis of the CDP is identical in dimension to the renowned PL-P and PL-L and thanks to the front-loading mechanism allows the units to be stacked neatly together.
