Hello and welcome to our auction for: TEN Audio valve Azur640C CD player
(that`s the last one we have in "stock" - the same converted model was sold recently - please see feedback)
This already very good player in "op-amp" version, mostly because of a brilliant 24bit 192kHz WM8740 Wolfson DAC has pure classA triode analog output stage fitted straight from the DAC "chip" signal output "pins"
Sound quality can leave you speechless.. and not only compared to the best and most expensive CD players on the market - this player sound better than almost anything "modded", upgraded, re-engineered and so on....
If you read testimonials from our Customers it may give you an idea how it sounds, but in fact this player is even better.
Totally analogue, alive sound with depth & "air", full of musical details
Real Hi End without "inflated" price tag
If you can live without "brand" pride of ownership, external casing to suggest that you`ve spent a lot..... and you love music - our players are the ones to have (and to keep)
Conversion of this player to valve version involved also re-engineering of DAC power supply (it is a must, otherwise player would have high frequency noise)- high quality inductors, Sanyo OsCon caps, Rubycon ZLH etc.
List of components used in our upgrade (it may vary for particular player, but not by a much:)):
Like all our valve CD players it carries 3Years Return to Base warranty for our output stage (valves included)
Very good cosmetic condition, few small marks mostly on the top cover
Perfect working condition
6 months warranty for other electronics inside this player
10 days from delivery date for you to decide if you are happy with our player
All our circuits are earth grounded, appropriately fused and EST tested
Comes with original Cambridge CD remote
Will be very well packed
Fresh review from one of our Customers:
I didn't think I liked CDs until I heard this player. Although I have a large collection I tend to play my LPs on my Linn Sondek in preference to the CDs. The new CD player has uncovered a wealth of detail in discs I thought I knew. The bass response has been dramatically improved and there is now a wide and detailed soundstage. This is undoubtedly the best CD player I have ever heard. Some listening highlights include Herbie Hancock's "River" and many of the RVG Blue Note Reissues. It's great on classical music too, a recent highlight being the Daniil Shafran recording of Beethoven's Cello Sonatas on Aulos Classics. I am impatient to work my way through my CD collection, which is the highest praise I can offer because it's all about the music after all.
Thank you for looking
