Chord Blu Choral CD Transport overview

Chord Blu transport

Manufacturers Product Description

Representing our flagship CD transport, Blu features our most advanced technology and is the perfect companion to our range-topping DAVE DAC as part of a dedicated two-box CD- replay solution. As a state-of-the-art CD transport, Blu takes full advantage of Rob Watts' advanced WTA filter technology as used in our DACs.Blu is capable of bit-perfect data extraction from CD and features selectable up-sampling from 44.1 to 176.4kHz to maximise accuracy before the signal is passed to a partnering DAC.Blu benefits from a suite of high-performance digital outputs including 2x AES/EBU, 2x BNC for the Dual Data output, plus BNC and Toslink optical for standard data output (all selectable via a toggle switch).Blu is thoughtfully versatile in use, too: all its functions have direct access buttons on the CD transport's fascia and the unit is also supplied with a fully functioning remote control.Further features include Chord Electronics' high-frequency switching power supply, a dedicated CD-only laser mechanism for uncompromising performance music and a self- supporting lid design that automatically stops play when lifted, and also holds the disc puck in perfect place. A dedicated two-shelf Choral equipment support is also available for use with DAVE.
