Classé’s latest addition to its Delta line of audio components, the CDP-102, promises great audio performance from a stylish player with a unique touchscreen control interface and slot-loading drive mechanism for $4,000. Its front-panel touchscreen actually works as a video preview display so users can easily navigate through recordings without the bulk or potential for noise and degradation that comes from a full-sized video display.

The CDP-102 is built on the same platform as the company’s CDP-300, using its same noise-free power supply design, differential-converter implementation and jitter-canceling topology to deliver balanced audio derived from the digital-to-analog process using 192kHz, 24-bit signals.

Formats supported by the CDP-102 include conventional CD, DVD, DVD-Audio (and DualDisc), Video-CD, S-VCD, MP3, AAC or WMA data discs and CD-R/RW. While the Classé is fundamentally a two-channel component, it is designed to reproduce downmixed stereo from multichannel recordings (and delivers multichannel Dolby Digital and DTS from its digital outputs on discs so encoded), and includes composite- and S-Video outputs for the convenience of connecting outboard, standard-definition video monitors.
