Superb sounding CD player with pure "Class A" valve/solid state based output stage that delivers silken top end performance so often lacking in cd players.

The Unico CD Primo uses a back-lit 128 x 64 LCD display with defeatable backlight to keep the user informed. Transport controls are managed either by the four buttons on the front panel, or via the supplied RC2 remote control (the same remote control supplied with most Unison Research amplifiers).

Internally the design is optimised for pure audio enjoyment. There are two main boards - one dedicated to the power supply and digital signal circuits, the second dedicated to the output stage circuit - that allow the audio signal to be as clean and uninterrupted as possible. The audio stage is designed around a single ECC82 (12AU7) double triode operating in pure Class A, which characterizes the sonic performance of the unit. The valve is followed by a discrete solid state buffer, operating in Class A too, for a low impedance output and ideal audio behaviour.

The digital conversion circuitry is a sophisticated layout often found in far more expensive units, to ensure every nuance of the recording is revealed by the CD player. The Unico CD Primo also boasts an asynchronous 16-bit USB input for high-quality playback from a computer or laptop. With a growing interest in computer's as hi-fi sources, this is a great way to access your digital music through a source device that will maximise the potential quality of your files as opposed to sacrificing audio quality by using other cheaper interfaces.

The aluminium front panels on all Unico series products are clean and stylish thanks to a new sandblasting and anodizing process. The end-result is truly stunning in line with the entire Unico range of equipment.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
