Enjoy high-resolution audio without the need for a PC connection.
CD Player with 5.6MHz DSD Disc Native Playback.

While PC is recognized as new audio equipment, there is a growing number of persons in the same time who want to enjoy high-resolution sound source without having to turn on PC. "PD-501HR" is a DSD/PCM file playback compatible CD player that has been made to enable the playback of a disc written by DSD.

Compatible for playback of DVD written with DSD up to 5.6MHz

"PD-501HR" supports the playback of DVD-R/CD-R written with DSD file and 192kHz/24bit PCM audio, it proposes a new listening style to transfer your favorite songs on original disk and enjoy without PC. By the use in conjunction with a high resolution corresponding pre-main amplifier such as AI-501DA, Audio system of the new era that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways to suit the situation when you want to hear the latest audio file will be completed.

Without converting the DSD file to PCM, with the "Pure Mode" function that deals with analog as it is

Other than CD-DA(Audio CD) playback, 2.8/5.6MHz DSD file, (dsf, dsdiff format) it supports playback of PCM files of up to 192kHz/24bit(WAV format). In addition, it is equipped with a "pure" mode, while with a general DSD playback once converted to PCM they change to analog, with the "PD-501HR" by switching the "pure" mode to ON you can directly change the DSD signal to analog. While it wasn't possible to taste the DSD signal after PCM conversation, you can enjoy a sound by DSD with a unique amount of information to offer.

Achieving excellent audio characteristics as a stand-alone disc player

The "PD-501HR" boasts a high performance as a stand-alone disc player, during PCM file playback S/N ratio of 116dB, when the dynamic range is 118dB it has a pride distortion factor of 0.0004%. In order to achieve this high performance, various high-quality sound technology was inputted to the circuit. The supply of the analog circuit and the digital circuit are separated, The entire circuit will have to suppress the noise by minimizing the pathway by the adoption of a 6-layer board.

It has been adopted with CS4398 by the famous Cirrus Logic Inc. In addition to these, circuit configuration, being the heart part, the CD drive is equipped with vibration suppression mechanism VACS uniquely developed, the reading of the signals has a high accuracy by effectively controlling the vibration of the drive. Low power consumption design that matches the era while achieving a high-quality sound is also achieved, power consumption is reduced to 11W.

"PD-501HR" is suitable for the standard of the coming era, it is a disk player that makes up the advanced smart audio system.
