Chord's entry-level Red CD player has been upgraded to include the stunning QBD76 D/A technology. Whereas other CD players use a DAC chip the size of your thumbnail, the QBD76 uses Chord's own ground-breaking discrete component circuitry.
The QBD76 resolves 40dB more data than the best DAC chips on the market. Thus the Red offers incredible performance which simply cannot be matched by other CD players. Outstanding value. Hear one today!
I can hear more into the details of this recording than nearly any other CD player I've ever encountered. The layers of details tonally are staggering. The energy of the first movement of this quartet, which is Beethoven's only real attempt to product a comic opera, without voices is like the opening of a bottle of champagne. The player is not varnishing the sound in any way that I could detect, it's providing a stark no holds-barred version of the recording.
