Since 1998, Electrocompaniet has produced one of the best sounding CD players on the market, the EMC 1-UP. The new EMC 1 MKIV builds upon this legacy and refines by using a new drive unit. The player has a high-performance sample rate converter, fully balanced D/A converters, and discrete analog audio circuitry for excellent performance. It features a unique cancellation system that cancels acoustic/mechanical vibrations, preventing the laser pick-up from receiving unwanted and sonically degrading signals. The audio quality surpasses our own EMC 1 UP, arguably one of the best CD players on the market today.
Product highlights: • No-compromise mechanical design with five different housings, which shield analogue, digital, transport, transformer and controller circuitry. • Electromechanical cancellation system which cancels acoustic-mechanical vibrations, preventing the laser pickup from receiving mechanical distortions. • Separate transformers and power supplies for analogue and digital circuits. • Fully balanced D/A converter with fully balanced discrete analog audio circuitry. • Digital outputs via S/PDIF and Toslink. •12V trigger input for remote power ON. • RS232 port for firmware upgrades and control through a wide range of home installation systems. • Soundcare superspikes for the best possible footing.
