The CDS27 offers outstanding performance from all forms of compatible audio media (SACDs, CDs and network media). As with all its FMJ devices, Arcam has gone to great lengths to maximise the performance of this next generation player. As an example the CDS27 benefits from a critically damped cover and chassis to virtually eliminate damaging microphonic vibration from reaching the sensitive electronics inside. 

The CDS27 includes a TI/Burr Brown PCM1794 digital to analogue converter coupled with a linear phase Bessel output filter and high precision re-clocking system which all results in a fantastic audio quality that is effortless to enjoy.

The power supply has been specially designed for outright performance with discreet supplies on the drive, analogue audio and DAC boards to deliver significant benefits to the overall performance of each element and thus allow each section to work truly independently and without interference.
