Old Is Gold
Despite home entertainment moving in the direction of digital audio and an increasing number of channels, Vincent's high-quality 2-channel systems are globally revered for their quality and performance.
In an entertainment landscape dominated by throwaway appliances and cheap gimmicks, the CD-400 defines itself as a CD Player that has been perfected with time and revision. It is solid at its core, offering reliable performance and easy usage. Its stereo pair of RCA outputs are gold-plated so the highest quality signal is sent on to your amplifier.
What is to be expected from modern players, the CD-400 features a digital coaxial output and gold-plated analogue RCA outputs. Connect this CD player to either a traditional analogue system or choose to bypass the quality built-in DAC and connect to a digital system.
Quality digital to analogue conversion is the backbone of a high-end CD Player. A good DAC is what separates a high-end CD player from a cheap, throwaway one. The CD-400 comes with a Sanyo DA11 drive coupled with a Philips Digital Servo System. The signal is decoded via a Burr-Brown PCM 1716, which is capable of decoding digital resolutions up to 24-bit, 96kHz.
These components are household names in the world of digital amplification and for good reason. What you get is crystal clear CD playback that is free from digital artifacts and unwanted noise.
The CD-400 features a variable output level, which is controlled with the volume buttons on the remote control. Control the level of the signal that is being outputted from the player into your other equipment. This allows you to connect to any system, of any level of sensitivity. This also gives you the option of bypassing a pre-amp completely and running the player straight into a power amp.
This remote-controlled CD Player from Vincent includes features and usability options that make it incredibly simple to use. Combining this with high processing quality and an excellent price-performance ratio, what else could you want from a CD player.
This unit is the ideal partner for equipment from Vincent's onset line (shown left) but brings stunning results to any system it is introduced to.
Quality Headphone Output
The CD-400 features a quality dedicated headphone output for your private listening. Where many manufacturers of source device products will include a headphone output as an afterthought, Vincent has cut no corners to include this on the CD-400. The headphone stage in this unit is made of carefully selected components and quality circuitry. Vincent's intent is to not just provide you the option of listening through headphones, but to encourage it.
