Developed with the experience gained from multiple-award-winning Lyngdorf Audio digital amplifiers and CD players, this player is one of the best sounding pure audio CD players on the market. The CD-2 is designed for audio only, and for this reason, using a pure audio drive is both simpler and better. All multi-format drives are based on video designs and clocks, and the audio output is then re-sampled (uncontrolled) to audio output clocks. Many choose to optimize the clock on the drive itself, but no matter what you do, ground potentials are difficult to control and the engine control board is noise-inducing.
Since 2005, Steinway Lyngdorf has redefined the standards of audio innovation and sound reproduction. In 2006, in a re-imagining of digital acoustic compensation, RoomPerfect™ was launched, marking an entry to the market of the most sophisticated solution for adapting sound to its environment. Despite their advanced technologies, Steinway Lyngdorf components are among the easiest to install in the audio market. They are also built to last, imbued with a strength and longevity unseen in competing products. All Steinway & Sons products work with all other series components to create custom sound systems. We guarantee the legacy of absolute perfection that comes with the Steinway & Sons partnership, and this cannot be attained with a mix of “off the shelf” products from different manufacturers. No chain is stronger than the weakest link, and our full system approach ensures high efficiency in every aspect. Steinway Lyngdorf’s integrated system approach delivers solutions for any room and for any need
The Lyngdorf Audio designed switch mode power supply is extremely well regulated and is filtered and decoupled to provide a low noise and low impedance supply to the digital and analog circuitry. With different supplies from four independent secondary windings on the transformer, the analog and digital supplies are kept separate to minimize digital noise in the analog circuit. Grounding is optimal, and the entire chassis is connected electrically. The back panel is electrically conductive.
Lyngdorf Audio spends great time and effort in designing products that will not radiate noise. Making a noise and radiation free design has the advantage that it will also make the CD-2 itself immune to noise from the outside and from products that have not had the same attention to details in the design phase.
The D/A converter section is used to drive a high-quality, single ended, and balanced output stage. The D/A converter is built around the Wolfson WM8740 chip. This, in combination with our balanced design and very fine audiophile op-amps, results in outstanding sonic qualities.
