The French company Métronome has presented an updated model of the Le Player 3+ CD player from the Classica series.
The component is a high-end front-loader CD player combined in a single housing, as well as a D / A converter for external signal sources. The main difference from the previous version is support for the DSD512 stream in its native form, in addition, the built-in DAC can work with a 32-bit / 384 kHz PCM signal.
The Philips GF8 transport mechanism is enclosed in its own separate case called the Pickup Box and is mechanically reliably decoupled from the rest of the structure. The turntable weighs 12 kilograms and has a retail price of 6,000 euro in Europe.
