High-End CD-Player kits with CD-Pro2LF, CD-Pro2, VAU1254/31.
Build a CD-Player by your own with the well known PHILIPS VAU1254/3, CD-PRO2LF CD-engine! A dream becomes true. Own conceptions of the sound and design can be realized. A hobby drive on the point and saving much money in opposite to a finished Player. High-End Sound for less money. All kits are plug´n`play components!
We use the famous CD-Pro2LF transport made by Philips! ...a fascinating hobby!
The building of an own CD-Player.
The CD-Player we developed works with a VAU1254/31 CD-Pro2LF transport by Philips. This transport is year-used from us with much success. I selected this transport at that time, because it is very durable and long-lived and has excellent sound quality. Remarkably is also the outstanding error-correction! Based on this part we developed the peripheral building groups and the cabinets with the default to realize a outstanding sound as well as long life time.
We developed high grade and low resonance cabinets hand made in small series with high quality materials. !
CD-Player Model Two MK III
CD-Transport CD-Two MK III - Discover the difference.
All supply voltages are high frequency-moderately decoupled.
All lines are blocked by ferrite cores for high frequency disturbances .
Cables are laid after exactly certain position and are twisted.
All signal lines are connected with twisted silver/teflon cables.
The signal output is three stage developed. The coupling to the DAC takes place by a special transformer.
In different to other solutions which substitute the original crystal oscillator of the CD-Pro2lf against a better, the output signal of the CD-Two MKIII will be relieved from jitter by a special eliminating circuit called jitter-killer. That has crucial advantages: The CD-Pro does not have to be changed. There is not a risk of a malfunctioning, because on the sensitive printed circuit board of the drive assembly must not be soldered for changing the crystal. A later exchange of the transport is simply possible without expensive changes. Upgrades can be simply re-tooled. No special extremely expensive and only with a reseller available components are needed. The sound result is alike the solution with changing the crystal.
All printed circuit boards are coated with plastic. This increases the long-term stability and reduces resonances.
All printed circuit boards are soldered by hand with high-quality silver brazing.
The housing is to be avoided particularly complex arranged around suppression of resonances to protect the CD against light and to optimise thus the sound the CD-Pro.
The development of the CD-transport up to the today's conditions took approx. 10 years. On this High Tech product we are particularly proud. The ground consists of a two layers with different components - one acrylic and one made of aluminium. This combination have acoustical neutral behaviour . Whereupon follows a particularly developed admission for the CD-transport, which provides for stability in the housing and in the sound. The housing is carried by a special profile and stands on spikes The cover of the CD-pit effected via a moment arm that is ball bearing and again made substantial of several layers. The housing is bolted several times substantial.
These features provide for perfect depiction of the music signal an above average locatableness and precision pay attention to every detail.
