The PD-10AE is developed with a center mounted drive to create a more rigid platform and less vibration. Also the base of the CD player is made with a torsion-resistant sheet steel chassis, for a more crisp audio experience.
Not all CD players are created equal, most are often developed for PC or other multimedia uses but not optimized for CDs. That is not the case for the PD-10AE; this CD player was developed especially for reliable, low-noise CD sampling. This ensures the most precise re-creation of the original artist recordings.
The PD-10AE comes equipped with a large-scale power supply, and a converter board featuring the modern AKM-DAC 4482VT with a high-precision clock pulse: a mere ±10ppm deviation from the nominal value. This is ideal for a precisely focused, natural sound.
