Arcam CDS27 Audiophile CD / SACD Player & Streamer


​CDS27 is “Outstanding” and awards the player the highest accolade


Introducing ARCAM’s all new audio disc player with UPnP and CIFS streaming up to 192kHz/24bit. This player once again raises the performance bar and is potentially ARCAM’s finest audio disc spinner to date! It houses the class leading TI/ Burr Brown PCM1794 DAC and also uses a high precision re-clocking system along with a new specially designed power supply. The player has single-ended and balanced outputs and also comes with IR and full duplex IP and RS232 control.

Few specialist manufactures have ever stepped up to the plate and succeeded where development of digital disc playback is concerned. The technological know-how required for the successful design of high performance digital audio sources is vast. With more than twenty-five years of digital audio experience, not to mention global recognition of its efforts, Arcam is proud to announce the arrival of it’s newest disc player, the CDS27. 

To ensure the CDS27’s music performance meets “reference” standards the class leading TI/Burr Brown PCM1794 digital to analogue converter (DAC) is used. This device, coupled with a linear phase Bessel output filter and high precision re-clocking system results in a level of audio quality required in a dedicated audiophile CD player. Even the CDS27’s power supply has been specially designed for outright performance. Discreet sub-regulated power supplies on the drive, audio and DAC boards deliver significant benefits to the overall performance of each element and thus allow each section to work truly independently and without interference.

UPnP and CIFS compatibility allow for effortless integration into networks allowing the CDS27 to access stored content with ease. As with all its FMJ devices, Arcam has gone to incredible lengths to maximise the performance of this next generation player. As an example the CDS27 benefits from a critically damped cover and chassis to virtually eliminate damaging microphonic vibration from reaching the sensitive electronics inside. 

The CDS27 is designed with a single purpose; to deliver the very best music experience for discerning owners. It also features a full suite of discrete IR, IP and RS232 codes making it perfect for integration within a high performance home cinema installation.

Still crazy after all those years
Thursday, 3 March 2016  | 

Considering English not being my mother tongue its gonna be tough to write a review about a CD player. Id rather be brief. My setup at home is an Arcam A32 stereo amplifier and two Fischer SN370 slate speakers. The old Rotel RCD 971 now had to be replaced by the Arcam CDS27. I must confess that although Im already in my mid fifties this player is able to create goosebumps again on my skin. Beautiful air around voices and instruments, width and depth of the stage and much more punch than the Rotel. Im excited again as in my twenties. At 595 this player is a real bargain and Im happy to have found you guys on the internet. I ordered the player on a sunday and it arrived the following thursday morning in my homeplace close to Cologne. Very fast and friendly reactions in communication by the shop owners, very fast delivery and a player in perfect condition. Today you made my day
