DetailsThe Antila II CD player introduces many unique technical and ergonomic innovations to combine state-of-the-art performance with total ease of use. Recently updated with a whole new Digital to Analogue board including new circuit layouts to provide decreased noise and improved soundstaging, as well as the use of high quality audiophile components in place of the previous surface mount parts, the performance reaches new levels, particularly in the extreme precision of the bass region; the delicate, analogue-like high frequencies and the expansive yet explicitly focused soundstage. Fully LIPSÆ compliant, allowing a press of the play button to power up the amplifier(s) from standby and select the CD input. Used in a totally purist, single-source system with the Hydra power amplifier, the Antila II will even control the amplifier's volume via LIPSÆ commands with the volume display read out in the LCD display. The unique MD Active Differential Multi-DAC technology employs twenty 24 bit / 192 kHz multi-bit Delta-Sigma converters, and data pipelining to eliminate jitter, a common source of error within CD Players. The Leema-designed FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) generates a fully balanced signal entirely within the digital domain ensuring significantly reduced levels of noise and distortion, thereby producing a breathtakingly real and tactile musical performance. This CD player with its unique MD active differential multi-DAC converter technology provides breathtaking realism and a tactile panoramic image.
