Musical stunner....

I was looking for a valve CD player, and came across the CS-55CD from CAYIN - I was not too familiar with the brand , but the reviews I did find all sang the praises of their range - fast forward to it now nestling sweetly in my set-up (Quad Pre and Power), and I can say without hesitation that this CD player has truly brought a wonderful new dynamic to my listening - it is organic and fluid, but has all the 'sparkle' that makes the music really sing , it also creates a somewhat three dimensional feel to the music, and I love that !

I have also been able to get even more performance with a change to the stock valve (12au7) - I have (on AE's recommendation) gone with a Golden Dragon valve, and it added another 10% for me - thank you again, I am a very happy chappy !

Best CD player I have owned.......

Having owned quite a number of solid state and valve CD players over the years , I feel well placed to make comment here - to say that I have been utterly thrilled to own this Cayin CS-55 would be an understatement - Audio Emotion said it would blow me away, and it has done exactly that .........

    Product Information

    AUDIO CLUB : 100 Points - Price/Performance - "Outstanding"

    The Cayin CS-55CD CD Player brings a while new dimension of performance to the sector........

    On the digital side Cayin have brought it's most advanced designs and technology available to the table - the results are nothing short of outstanding.

    The transport mechanism is housed in the specially damped Cayin designed mini-chassis, this reduces jitter considerably and further enhances the musical experience.

    Two digital outputs are provided for those who wish to utilise the CS-55CD as transport only - again these outputs are first processed to ensure the highest possible integrity of the data stream, and again promoting the very lowest jitter for the external DAC.

    On the output side, the CS-55CD simply spoils the listener with the very finest musicality.

    Tube technology allows Cayin to bring an incredibly organic and fluid presentation to the fore : A carefully selected  12AU7 tube is used in the analogue output stage, and this ensures that the resultant soundstage is one of both analogue and silky flavours.

    Cayin has also implemented an over engineered toroidal transformer, this gives the CD55 an incredibly low noise floor, with separate windings for digital and analogue circuits - musical results are enthralling.

    The Cayin CS-55CD is available in either silver or black and on request there is an exquisite solid aluminium system remote control allowing all the functions of the CS-55A CD Player can be controlled.

    The customer can also add a very high specification USB DAC Module - this allows any Digital Streamer or PC/Laptop to be connected directly to the CS-55CD - based on the incredibly powerful Burr-Brown PCM5101, this D/A converter is able to reach even the very highest resolutions and can read music files up to 32bit/384KHz.
