CD Player – Virgo
Virgo is a top loader CD player equipped with a USB audio interface. It features the famous Philips CD PRO 2 module which is designed to deliver exceptional audio performance and very low mechanical playing noise. Two PCM1794A in dual-mono configuration convert the digital signal to analog, while the CS8421 upsampler converts the 44.1KHz sampling rate of the audio CD to 96KHz before feeding it to the DAC chips. Besides the sampling conversion the upsampler minimizes the jitter contained in the digital signal, resulting in a more detailed and open sound. The dual-mono design is also applied in the power supply section, where separate toroidal windings and voltage stabilizer circuits are used. The USB audio interface is asynchronous and supports up to 192KHz/24 bits sampling rates.
