Whilst an off-the-shelf CD/DVD-ROM drive might be fine for your computer, if you’re really serious about extracting every last detail from your discs, you need a CD player that’s been designed to do one thing only - to play audio CDs. The 351C is offers a real taste of audiophile purism – just without the price tag to go with it.
The 351C features a host of top grade components including our house-designed, audio-only CD transport which is coupled to Cambridge Audio’s third generation proprietary S3 servo solution. Explaining how it works is akin to rocket science but anyone who loves music, cannot fail to be moved by the way it sucks data from discs, processes it with incredibly low distortion and most importantly, delivers amazingly dynamic sound to your ears.
Warm yet incredibly detailed...
The new 351C carries over the latest Wolfson WM8728 DAC from its award-winning predecessor but the whole design has been subtly retuned for an even richer performance and sensational levels of detail from music of all types.
And like its amplifier partner – the 351A – this amazing CD player also benefits from a superior toroidal transformer which offers much less noise and distortion than lower cost laminate transformers which are more commonplace amongst the competition.
The best way to experience the wonders of the 351C is to have an audition.
