Everything a CD Player Should Be – and Much More: German-Made AVM CD 3.2 Features 24-Bit/192kHz Upsampling, Separate DACs and Power Supplies, USB Input for DSD64
The AVM CD 3.2 is living proof that superb, audiophile-quality CD players can still be had for a reasonable price. Even better, the German-made CD 3.2 takes into account demands for cutting-edge technology that elevates the performance of any disc and accommodates up to high-resolution DSD64 files from a computer by way of a built-in USB-B digital input. It all begins with user-adjustable upsampling up to 24-bit/192kHz and continues with separate DAC chips operating in double-mono configuration, resulting in fantastic signal-to-noise ratios and near-immeasurable distortion. Two separate oversized power supplies for the CD drive and advanced signal-processing circuitry further attest to how serious CD 3.2 views music playback.
Indeed, CD 3.2 is all about reproducing the details, dynamics, tonalities, and textures from your disc collection to the utmost degree. Supreme jitter reduction by way of the unit's internal upsampling and independent signal processing comes standard. Factor in a phenomenal, slot-in, suspended, acoustically shielded CD mechanism and an unshakable solid-aluminum anodized casing, and CD 3.2 is built to perform – and connect. No fewer than seven digital inputs (including a pair of USB inputs, one for dedicated computer audio), two line-level inputs, and two digital outputs help turn CD 3.2 into a digital hub. An aluminum RS232-ready remote control, blue graphical display, and sleek looks – along with Music Direct's Money-Back Guarantee – seal the deal.
