Pre-Owned Audio Research CD1


Premium Pre-Owned CD Player

Categories , Brand:

The CD-1 is built like a tank: it weighs 17 lbs and feels as durable as an anvil. Audio Research’s heavy faceplate and massive handles serve to reinforce that effect. Though built upon a Philips chassis, the CD-1’s source is essentially unrecognizable, ARC having extensively redesigned it. Rear-panel accommodations include a removable AC cord (unusual for an ARC product, but improving the power cable offered audible benefits), balanced and unbalanced analog outputs via XLR and RCA jacks respectively, ST-Standard optical, TosLink optical, RCA S/PDIF, and AES/EBU digital outputs.
