Main Features


Experiencing High-resolution Audio To TOP
Supports SACD, CD-DA, CD-R/RW Discs
As a high-end digital disc player, the CD-3000 supports SACD, as well as CD-DA, CD-R/RW discs.
USB2.0 High-speed USB Audio Input
Not only to playback SACD, the CD-3000 equips a USB Port that allows users to connect to a PC, and playback high-resolution audio data from it. This is a totally new way of enjoy music listening for high-end audiophile, by playing back high-resolution digital audio data, which is several times more precise than conventional CD-DA.
24bit/192kHz Dual D/A Converters for Left and Right Channels
The CD-3000 employs a pair of D/A Converters which is capable of processing up to 24bit/192kHz digital audio, for each left and right channel respectively. This contributes to reduce cross talk between left and right channels, and maximizes purity of each channel.
Up-conversion to 192kHz
The CD-3000 also processes up-conversion to the incoming digital audio data, via USB or Coaxial audio input, up to 192kHz. As a result, reproduced analog audio waveforms become much smoother.
Dual Power Transformers for Analog and Digital sections
A pair of large power transformers is employed for each analog and digital section respectively. Thanks to this design, high-frequency noise by-produced at the digital section cannot affect to analog section by travelling on current supply path.

Quality Build, Quality Design

Full Aluminum Body and Steel Chassis
The CD-3000 employs extremely thick aluminum panels for front, top and sides, as steel chassis is used for back panel and bottom chassis. This robust construction contributes to eliminate unnecessary vibration by its weight, and gives an authentic look to the CD-3000.
Center-mounted SACD/CD Drive Mechanism
The SACD/CD Mechanism is located at the center of the unit, to achieve the ideal weight distribution to reduce unnecessary vibrations. It also contributes to give the CD-3000 aesthetic appearance.
Balanced Analog Audio Output
