Description

CDS50

The CDS50 is the most advanced cd, digital audio and network streaming player that Arcam have yet made.

In a sense, digital audio doesn’t exist. Who has ears that can decode the millions of 0’s and 1’s that make up your CD collection or iTunes library?

Whatever the source – be it a laptop, CD player, smartphone, USB stick – the result is just a vibration in your speakers. In other words, it all winds up analogue in the end.

When playing from a digital format, arguably the most vital component is the Digital-to-Analogue Converter (DAC), which translates that binary code into audible sound energy. Bit-depth, meanwhile, is a key measure of audio quality.

So if you’re listening to a 24-bit WAV copy of your favourite album through a DAC that only converts to 16-bit, you can appreciate that a good chunk of detail is going to waste. That’s why Arcam have included 32-bit DACs – the most commonly used bit-depth in digital recording – on their entire HDA range, so you are guaranteed the full aural picture of whatever the artist intended.
