The CD 2.1x/II is essentially a component upgraded version of the CD1.1x. Better parts, such as high grade Audio Note tantalum resistors, Cerafine capacitors and Audio Note copper foil output capacitors make for a more open, detailed and lively performance than the CD-1.1x. The CD 2.1x/II uses the Philips L1210 mechanism and a simple yet revealing DAC made with the 1543 16 bit multi-bit digital to analogue converter chip. This player, like its bigger brothers, features no oversampling, no digital or analogue filtering, making for a highly effective sonic combination all housed in a new, smaller chassis which measures just 91 x 440 x 235 mm (HWD).
The player uses a single 6111WA miniature double triode, each half of the valve running a different channel.
