The CD-S3000 CD/SACD player was developed with the utmost musical performance in mind. A newly designed disc drive mechanism, the key instrument in reading audio signals, eliminates vibrations while the digital/analogue circuits were also redesigned to ensure data loss is minimised. The result is a sound that conveys the most subtle nuances of the music and even the emotion in the recording.
