Quad Platinum DMP is a CD Player with built in Pre Amplifier and is Quad's premium digital integratation device. With multiple digital inputs and a USB input along with a built in CD player and high resolution DAC capable of reproducing up to and including 24-bit/192kHz files.


Product Description


The Platinum DMP (Digital Media Player) incorporates a high-quality CD transport constructed from die-cast aluminium and ABS compound. The CD tray is supported by high-grade steel rods running through sintered bronze bearings. This construction reduces noise and vibration through critical damping of the mechanical components, allowing the laser to read the disc with unerring accuracy.

From the CD mechanism, data is passed to twin Cirrus Logic 24-bit/192kHz Delta-Sigma D/A converters. The DAC configuration utilises the D/A converters in double differential mode with a dedicated D/A converter to each channel for optimum stereo performance. In addition to CD, the DAC circuit can handle audio data from external digital music sources, converting data of up to 24bit/192kHz with minimum jitter and maximum accuracy.

A fully balanced pre-amplifier is built in, enabling direct connection to its partnering Platinum Stereo or Platinum Mono power amplifiers.
