CD's have been with us for decades now and continue to provide a convenient, high quality listening experience. The C-7000R brings together features and refinements to bring the very best out of your audio CD's and CD-R/RW's, and even MP-3 or WMA encoded discs you may have made on your computer. To ensure minimal signal interference, the C-7000R employs a thermally regulated super precision clock, PLL ultra low jitter technology, and a new circuit board construction. All of this highly sensitive componentry is housed in anti-vibration casing, with separate aluminum panels for the top, front, and sides. In keeping with the zero tolerance approach to interference, digital circuitry and analog circuitry are physically separated, and you have the choice of operating the C-7000R in either digital only or analog only mode. The silent disc mechanism and solid die cast aluminum tray epitomize the unit's audiophile build quality.
