- Linear technology applied in DAC stage, sampling frequency selected manually from 44.1kH to 88.2kH by remote.
- 4 pieces Philips TDA1543 chip working in parallel for lower output essential impedance and higher DAC precision.
- Heavier chassis, LED display, better power supply and components bring more detailed care to the sound.
- No smearing effect caused by digital filter, superb transient response without any over-shooting in sound.

Linear technology (applied to CDplayer):
-Non-oversampling, no digital filter
-J-FET/Transisters filter, no op-amp at all
-Passive I/V conversion In progression
-Short pass length, less number of parts
Review from customer

My name is Mrs Sandra Honeyman, I live in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I have never felt the need to write to a manufacturer before but I feel I must contact you to thank you for the impact you have made to my listening pleasure.

I have just bought a Consonance Forbidden City Orfeo cd player. I took a risk in buying it without having heard it, and there are not many reviews of it on the internet, as I was not inspired by my Cyrus CD8x player.

Wow!. As soon as I heard the Orfeo I knew this was the sound I have always been looking for in a cd player. It constantly brings a smile to my face. I have never heard anything as good as this before. My ears are filled with pleasure. It is clearly in a different league than any of my previous players:
Marantz CD6003
Rega Planet 200
Rega Apollo
Cyrus CD8x

I hope your company goes from strength to strength. Opera have re-energised my music collection and my enthusiasm for music.

Many, many thanks
