The matching CD 50n digital player uses a 32-bit ESS Sabre DAC chip with custom in-house filters, catering for PCM files up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD data up to 256 via its USB input. Alongside CD playback, it can also act as a network player with access to streaming services including Spotify, AirPlay 2, Tidal and more, with HEOS built-in. And with an internal volume control, it can also be used as a digital preamp in its own right, making it very versatile.
