Ultimate CD player, USB DAC and aptX Bluetooth receiver in one
The Unison Research Unico CD Due is much more than simply a reference CD player; it’s a top quality digital music hub in one. As well as playing back your CDs, you can connect your digital sources via USB-B, XLR, coaxial and optical inputs for a full system upgrade. There’s even an aptX compatible Bluetooth receiver, giving you high quality wireless streaming from your smartphone or tablet.
Balanced connectivity for studio-grade performance
Featuring XLR/AES/EBU balanced connections for input and both analogue and digital outputs, the Unico CD Due has professional-grade connectivity. Where your matching amp and source also have XLR compatibility, using a suitable cable gives you an improved connection with very low levels of signal loss – letting you hear even the most subtle musical detail.
Premium CD player
At its heart, the Unico CD Due is a premium CD player. The player uses a high quality, shielded transport mechanism for isolation against sound-degrading interference. The sound then passes on to a top quality ESS Sabre ES9018K2M DAC for processing. The result is sensational CD sound quality that maximises your CDs’ full potential.
Enhanced Digital hub
Featuring, USB-B, coaxial, optical and balanced AES/EBU inputs, this player not only plays your CDs but also upgrades the sound from four other digital sources. Plug a computer into the USB interface and stream music files up to 32bit/384kHz or DSD256 for studio-grade sound quality. In addition to this plug your network streamer, TV and games console into the AES/EBU, coaxial and optical inputs and enjoy a great uplift in sound quality (supports up to 24bit/192kHz from AES/EBU and 24bit/96kHz from optical).
Bluetooth receiver with aptX compatibility
Another handy feature is the built-in Bluetooth receiver. Perfect for streaming music, Internet radio and podcasts from your smartphone or tablet, this wireless connection offers a quick and easy way to enjoy a vast range of audio content from your phone. Featuring aptX compatibility, it also gives the ability to stream at a higher ‘CD quality’ level.
Uprated valve output for smooth sound
Upgraded from the CD Uno model, the CD Due uses a 4-valve output configuration (as found in the Unico 90 and 150 amplifiers). This gives the ideal balance of typically smooth valve sound with very low noise levels and high dynamic response. In other words, you get the best of all worlds.
Digital filters for your choice of sound
With three digital filter settings, you can tailor the sound to meet your precise requirements. The filters adjust the signal’s slope and phase, subtly altering the sound to suit your taste and music.
Top quality style and finish
Available in silver or black, the chunky metal facia sets the standard for a quality finish and feel. Minimalist controls and neat details further set this CD player apart as something special.
