CD-2 CD Player

Developed with the experience gained from multiple award-winning Lyngdorf Audio digital amplifiers and CD players, this player is one of the best-sounding pure audio CD players on the market. The CD-2 is designed for audio only, and for this reason, using a pure audio drive is both simpler and better. All multi-format drives are based on video designs and clocks, and the audio output is then re-sampled (uncontrolled) to audio output clocks. Many choose to optimize the clock on the drive itself, but no matter what you do, ground potentials are difficult to control and the engine control board is noise-inducing.

Electrical design

The Lyngdorf Audio-designed switch mode power supply is extremely well-regulated. It is filtered and decoupled to provide low noise, low impedance supply to the digital and analogue circuitry. Different supplies from four independent secondary windings on the transformer keep the analogue and digital supplies separate to minimize digital noise in the analogue circuit. Grounding is optimal, and the entire chassis is connected electrically. The back panel is electrically conductive.

Lyngdorf Audio spends great time and effort designing products that will not radiate noise. Making a noise and radiation-free design has the advantage that it will also make the CD-2 itself immune to noise from the outside and from products that have not had the same attention to details in the design phase.

D/A converter

The D/A converter section is used to drive a high-quality, single-ended, and balanced output stage. The D/A converter is built around the Wolfson WM8740 chip. This, in combination with our balanced design and very fine audiophile op-amps, results in outstanding sonic qualities.
