Looking for a good quality twenty-one pound CD player that doesn't cost a fortune?
This heavily built wonder from Emotiva should fit the bill quite nicely! This plays CD's, HDCD's, and MP-3 CD's.
The ERC-3 also has a plethora of outputs including optical, coax and the rare AES/EBU. AES/EBU is actually the best of the SPDIF based physical transports because it's higher power rated and has a balanced leg to keep noise out of the digital transmission. If your dac has this input then we encourage you use an AES/EBU connection from the ERC-3.
The ERC-3 has an Analog Devices AD1955 DAC chip in it for high quality digital to analog conversion and features both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) outputs.
Very heavy build quality with a high reliability transport.
