An Italian designed/manufactured CD player, the Blacknote CDP 300, has just been introduced to North American markets by Koetsu USA. The chassis features shielded steel construction, an anti-resonance lacquer and an extra large digital display. The proprietary circuitry from Blacknote allows for 24-bit resolution as well as higher over-sampling than your standard CD player.
This CD player uses a vacuum tube output stage, Natural Speed to stabilize disc rotation, a robust and detailed power supply and an extremely low jitter clock generator. The CDP 300 is available for a suggested retail price of $4,316.
