The X-D500 is a CD transport that concentrates on its main task: reading the purest digital information from the CD. The analog conversion will have to be done via a digital to analog converter (DAC) or an amplifier with digital inputs. The linear power supply is based on 2 toroidal transformers for a perfect separation of the different power supplies. Circuits necessary for the operation of the product such as the management of the mechanics, the handling of the signal coming from the laser will benefit from such high quality power supplies.
An Up-Scaling function makes it possible to change the original digital signal (16bit/44.1kHz) into a High-Definition type signal (24bit/96kHz or 24bit/192kHz). The X-D500 has a very rigid chassis thanks to its mechanical design. Each circuit is separated from the others by a compartmentalized construction that guarantees effective shielding. Equipped with digital outputs such as coaxial (RCA), optical (TOSLINK) and AES/EBU (XLR), the X-D500 is a high-end component for your Hi-Fi system. It is compatible with all Advance Paris products (except the Xi50BT) and allows you to enjoy your CDs, media that are still a reference for their sound quality.
