People who put premium on the sound quality that they can get from the usual audio-rendering players today may want to check out this new and expensive CD player released by Grant Fidelity. Called the CD-1000 Impression II CD player, this new audio solution comes with a tube and solid state circuit design with tube analog output, a tube headphone amp, and a CD player.
The CD drive used is from Sanyo backstopped by Nikon high grade capacitors. The unbalanced output of the system is from a set of vacuum tubes and the system has coaxial, optical, AES/EBU, and EL84 headphone outputs.
The CD-1000 Impression II CD system will retail for about $3,200 and can be enhanced in stainless steel for an additional $380.
