The sound demands it! Only the best components have been used in the CD-S5. The amplifier section of the audio output stage works in Class A circuits. The symmetrical signals pass through four separate channels, so they have little opportunity to interfere with each other. Two mains transformers, one for the analogue part, one for the digital board and the CD reader unit, provide enormous power here. The result: a clear sound low in distortion even at full power.
