Arcam FMJ CDS27 CD/SACD Player & Network Streamer

ARCAM’s all new audio disc player with UPnP and CIFS streaming up to 192kHz/24bit is a fabulous combination of talents. This player once again raises the performance bar and is potentially ARCAM’s finest audio disc spinner they have created so far.

The new Arcam CDS27 combines superlative CD playback with the ability to also play SACD at reference level, plus wireless or wired streaming of music files stored on your network, be it NAS drive or PC/ Mac, or even USB stick.

The class leading TI/Burr Brown PCM1794 digital to analogue converter (DAC) is used in the CDS27. This device, coupled with a linear phase Bessel output filter and high precision re-clocking system results in a level of audio quality required in a dedicated audiophile CD player.

Even the CDS27’s power supply has been specially designed for outright performance. Discreet sub-regulated power supplies on the drive, audio and DAC boards deliver significant benefits to the overall performance of each element and thus allow each section to work truly independently and without interference.

Analogue outputs are available on both single ended RCA output sockets or balanced XLR sockets for the ultimate low noise performance. Network connections are made either by built in wi-fi or preferably by using the ethernet socket, either way you will be quickly and easily enjoying your favourite music.

Finally the player is controllable from the supplied IR remote control or the Arcam Songbook app and if you are not using a turntable it may well be the only source you need!

In order to achieve the highest possible performance from this FMJ product, we thoroughly recommend you ask us to calibrate and install this product for you in the comfort of your home.
