Model3 utilizes Philips VAU1254 CD-PRO2 module for professional and industrial-grade. CD-PRO module is adopted for a lot of high-end transports and a CD players, industrial CD equipment such as ORACLE, MarkLevinson No31.5, Sonicfrontiers Transport3, BOW, etc.
The CD-PRO module features:
Model3 adopts Philips PREMIUM 10501 High-performance and reliability, industrial-standard CD playback system.
PREMIUM 10501 is composed of pure Philips ICs such as SAA7324 CD10 decoder
and TDA1305 latest bit stream DA converter, etc,. PREMIUM 10501 provides
High-performance CD playback and pure Philips sound.
Model3 has the low-pass filter and the output buffer stage applying the vacuum tube circuit technique of softone. The analog circuit is No Negative feedback circuit, and composed only two FETs for each channel. This good-natured and simple circuit will improve a cool tone of a digital equipment, and provide a warm and natural tone.
Model3 adopts top loading and magnetic clamping mechanism for CD. Because CD is fixed tightly, the accurate reproduction is possible. There is no worry of the trouble of the loading mechanism, and working stable for a long time.
Though the compact size, Model3 is built of a thick steel board. CD-PRO module is fixed to a steel board base of 5 mm thickness, and assembled strongly with sliding CD door etc. The strongly structure of Model3 realize stable CD playback.
High quality parts are used for Model3. Latest digital IC, high quality glass-epoxy circuit board, large-power resistor, OS capacitor, high voltage mica capacitor, gold plated RCA jacks, etc..
Model3 does not only as the CD player, and be the best CD transport for Model2 tube D/A converter. The externals size of Model3 is same as Model2 and the combination of Model3 and Model2 reproduces more high quality sound.
The price of Model3 is US$1500. It is reasonable than the other CD player and CD transport using Philips Pro drive. You can enjoy the professional grade sound in low cost.
