Quad Elite CDS CD Player

Quad has announced the new Elite CDS CD Player, which replaces Quad's 99 Series CD Player.

The Elite CDS enjoys significant revisions throughout, including a new transport mechanism and servo system. Audio data is regulated by a high-performance master clock to minimise jitter (digital distortion), then fed to a top-end Crystal 24-bit/192kHz DAC, which replaces the older 24-bit/96kHz chip used by the player's predecessor. The highest quality electronic components are specified throughout, with multi-layer circuit boards and Quad's advanced, proprietary filtering and control software.

  • Total Harmonic Distortion: <0.0013% at 1kzHz
  • Dynamic Range: >100dB 'A' wtd. 16 bits
  • Outputs: RCA (analogue); optical (digital)
