BDP150 front

 No longer produced, we have one Level 1 Player version left ex demo for £350 inc shipping.

The Sabre DAC Transformation of the Pioneer BDP150 Universal Player gives  an extremely high quality reproduction of stereo music from a very wide  range of digital music sources, including CD, SACD, DVD-A, DVD-V, BluRay , USB memory device and networked server.

The BDP-150 just provides I2S data, everything else is Chevron  designed and manufactured.

What we add (all Chevron designed):-

    • · A DAC module using two ES9023 Sabre DAC chips operating in differential mode. This mode of operation gives lower noise & distortion than a  single chip implementation. Power supplies to and in the DAC chips are  very low noise, much better than the datasheet recommendation for the  ES9023.
    • · The Sabre DAC chips are asynchronously clocked by a low jitter clock,  this ensures any jitter in the digital sources is reduced to an  insignificantly low level. Clock frequency has been chosen for best  sound quality.
    • · Opamps made from discrete components & operating in class A , only one per channel is  needed to combine the differential audio signals.
    • · A mains transformer & low noise linear power supplies for the DAC module & opamps.
    • · Additional capacitors in the BDP150 power supplies to reduce noise. The BDP150 circuits only have to decode the audio data to i2s format for  the DAC module they are not critical to final sound quality but for a  small cost we have improved them anyway.
    • · Chassis vibration control is added to improve immunity to acoustic feedback.

    Pure Audio€ - A new audio format for Blu-Ray has been released.  Its audio  only similar to DVD-Audio but with up to 24/192 recordings in stereo and multi channel and can be operated without a display or TV connected. We have Patricia Barbers - Modern Cool and it certainly sounds better  than the CD version (which itself sounded very good). Click Here.
