SOLID STATE DIGITAL
PerfectWave CD/DVD Memory player
A ground-breaking product that removes all digital sound limitations retrieving everything from your CD collection without any jitter or sonic loss.
The PWT plays both standard and high resolution audio and sends perfect digital audio data from its solid state memory directly to your DAC and then onto your loudspeakers. It works differently than other CD players by first extracting music from the CD, then storing to an internal memory and playing from the memory instead of the disc.
Traditional CD mechanisms and computer hard drives are mechanical deviceshopelesslytrying to perform in a world of precise timing. These timing challenges can only be properly handled with non-mechanical means and that’s just what the memory player does: plays from the output of a solid state memory rather than the CD itself.
The results are remarkable and deliver better performance on any system by unlocking all the musical magic stored in your CD’s and hidden from you until now.
