CD Player With Integrated High-End DAC & Preamp

The NuPrime CDP-9 is a highly accurate CD player with an integrated high-end DAC and preamp. A powerful DSP-based decoder that provides all Red Book error-correction capabilities with master-clock control of the entire decoding system, thus lowering jitter significantly. The transport’s single speed minimizes vibration and unbalanced discs. The high-performance DAC, together with a selectable sampling rate converter for the digital output (up to 32bit/768kHz and DSD512) converts the CD format to either SPDIF at highest sampling rate or DSD format up to DSD512.


Highly Accurate CD Playback

    • A powerful ARM chip LPC2103F CD reads, writes and controls error correction
    • Philips SAA7824HL high-end laser reads/writes head control and decodes chips
    • Supports CD-DA CD-R, CD-RW
    • Algorithm reduces digital interference and jitter

A Reference Class Preamp

    • Advanced, FPGA-implemented, switched-resistor ladder network for controlling volume with a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting
    • Individually adjustable volume on each input for precise source-level matching
    • Volume adjustments in 99 precise 0.5dB increments. Full microprocessor control with memory retention

Sampling Rate Converter

    • The sampling rate of any digital inputs, including CD playback, can be converted up or down between PCM and DSD, from 44.1kHz to 768kHz  or DSD64 to DSD512
    • The conversion is achieved by up-sampling to mega hertz before down converting to the targeted sampling rate with ultra-low jitter and distortion

Headphone Amp

    • High performance op-amp headphone amp

Compatible OS

    • Exclusive driver software for Windows
    • Standard driver software for Mac

Power and Mechanical

    • Low power consumption in Standby Mode
    • Available in black or silver anodized aluminum finish

Using Bluetooth and WiFi Audio Receivers and Dongles

NuPrime defined an USB Type-A port to carry S/PDIF data and 5V power for connecting to external wireless audio receiver using just one standard USB cable.

The NuPrime Bluetooth dongle BTR-8, D-Stream Audio Primo HD (24-bit/192kHz) and NuPrime WR-100/100D (24-bit/96kHz, co-developed with D-Stream) wireless receivers have a micro USB port that is compatible this specification. This allow a standard off-the-shelf USB-A to micro USB cable to be used for power for the receiver as well as wireless audio data transfer in S/PDIF format.
