Manufacturer: Icon Audio
The CD X2 is mid priced CD player developed to have a similar sonics to our more expensive CD X1 but at a lower price.
What we have done:The CDX1 uses the latest 192kHz 24bit upsampling technology for high resolution. But more than this we have paid attention to the all important output stage of the CD X2 in order to avoid the “mechanical” soul-less presentation that some CD players have.
You can expect a more musical presentation with more warmth and colour, being very easy to listen to.Seeking greater stability we decided to use a top loading mechanism to without the “slide out drawer” for improved rigidity. The heavier alloy clamp also acts as a flywheel to improve rotational stability.
