The effortless presentation and detail is immediately noticeable, whether using the CD400se as a CD player or taking advantage of its SPDIF inputs and using the reference level dual mono internal Burr-Brown 1794 DACs. The 125dB signal to noise ratio and XLR outputs offer a very quiet or "black" back ground allowing to enjoy the musical presentation without any spurious artifacts.
The modern yet elegant design mirrors the choice of a quality component and a statement of serious performance.
A CD transport drive version is available. It has the same basis as the CD400SE with special features regarding the transport and the supplies.
