CD PLAYER

If you're after a way of extracting every last piece of data from your CDs and turning it into the most musical experience imaginable, then look no further than the all-new 651C CD Player. Developed to offer a true taste of high-end musical reproduction at an altogether more affordable price, it features an all-new twin Digital to Analogue Conversion system (DAC) with the same selectable filter arrangement used in the legendary DacMagic. These enhancements, in addition to completely retuned audio circuits, make for an even purer, more lifelike experience than its highly regarded predecessor.

Where many CD players use drives designed for computers, at Cambridge Audio we went the extra mile and created a CD-only S3 Custom CD ServoTM drive. This audiophile design gives the 651C the ability to retrieve maximum digital information which in turn means you hear every last detail from your discs.

Twin Wolfson WM8742 DACs deliver a significant performance upgrade over the 651C's award-winning predecessor and are implemented in a dual differential configuration (each channel has its own DAC to process information). A sophisticated Two-Pole Dual Differential Double Virtual Earth Balanced Bessel filter configuration rejects virtually all noise and distortion present in the DACs and filters them to produce an unprecedented level of performance.

The new DACs also feature a selectable digital filter with three settings to suit your own listening preferences and of course your own system:

The Steep roll-off filter exhibits strong attenuation of aliasing images outside the pass band (i.e. above 22.05kHz) at the expense of a little pre and post-ringing in the time domain.
The Linear phase filter uniquely features, constant group delay' which delays all audio signals at all frequencies by the same amount meaning all audio is fully time-coherent at the output.
Minimum phase meanwhile does not feature constant group delay but rather the co-efficients have been optimised without feed-forward so that the impulse response exhibits no pre-ringing in the time domain.

Features

  • Audiophile grade toroidal transformer delivering ultra-low low noise and distortion
  • Twin Wolfson WM8742 DACs arranged in 2-Pole Bessel; Dual Differential Virtual Earth Balanced filter topology
  • Proprietary Cambridge Audio S3 servo solution
  • All PCBs and DAC stages feature doublesided surface mount technology, eliminating wire links and giving ultra short signal paths
  • New selectable digital filters - linear phase, minimum phase, steep
  • Highly accurate master clock oscillator and carefully designed impedance-matched clock buffering schemes
  • Wrap-around casework design with substantially thick brushed aluminium front panel and dual layer damped feet, giving enhanced resonance control
  • Eco-friendly <1W Standby power consumption
  • Available in black and silver finishes
