NuPrime CDP-9

Brand New from NuPrime, The CDP-9 combines a CD Player, DAC, Preamp and Headphone Amp All in One!


The NuPrime CDP-9 is a highly accurate CD player with an integrated high-end DAC and preamp. A powerful DSP-based decoder that provides all Red Book error-correction capabilities with master-clock control of the entire decoding system, thus lowering jitter significantly. The transport’s single speed minimizes vibration and unbalanced discs. The high-performance DAC, together with a selectable sampling rate converter for the digital output (up to 32bit/768kHz and DSD512) converts the CD format to either SPDIF at highest sampling rate or DSD format up to DSD512.


Highly Accurate CD Playback
• – A powerful ARM chip LPC2103F CD reads, writes and controls error correction
• – Philips SAA7824HL high-end laser reads/writes head control and decodes chips
• – Supports CD-DA CD-R, CD-RW
• – Algorithm reduces digital interference and jitter

A Reference Class Preamp
• – Advanced, FPGA-implemented, switched-resistor ladder network for controlling volume with a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting
• – Individually adjustable volume on each input for precise source-level matching
• – Volume adjustments in 99 precise 0.5dB increments. Full microprocessor control with memory retention

Sampling Rate Converter
• – The sampling rate of any digital inputs, including CD playback, can be converted up or down between PCM and DSD, from 44.1kHz to 768kHz or DSD64 to DSD512
– The conversion is achieved by up-sampling to mega hertz before down converting to the targeted sampling rate with ultra-low jitter and distortion

Headphone Amp
• – High performance op-amp headphone amp

Compatible OS
• – Exclusive driver software for Windows
• – Standard driver software for Mac

Power and Mechanical
• – Low power consumption in Standby Mode
• – Available in black or silver anodized aluminum finish
