The CD player is 88 mm high, 200 mm wide and 322 mm deep. It is controlled through the device front panel or via infrared with the Joy S208 Remote control. Televisions or DVD players from other manufacturers can also be controlled using the system remote control. Additionally, an integrated RS232 interface facilitates bidirectional control in larger systems.
Through the intelligent interplay of a powerful 192 kHz/24 bit BurrBrown PCM1796 D/A converter, a precision pulse generator and an oscillation-free, bearing-mounted drive coupled with a low-resonance housing construction, the result is a clean and distortion-free audio signal with a dynamic range of 118 dB. The offset-voltage at the audio output is only 0.0005 volt.
The Joy CD Player has internal constant current power supplies and a CD drive with a particularly quiet loading mechanism. The audio signal is provided either through an analogue output or through one of the two digital outputs, coaxial and optical. This makes the Joy CD Player suitable for amplifiers of all types.
