The chassis is made of high mass steel coloured with a specially selected dampening thick black paint made for Blacknote® exclusively.
The aluminium transport if of the drawer type and is designed to achieve excellent rotational stability helped by a sophisticated servo controlled system called Natural-Speed™ that generates the minimum vibration possible let spinning the disc quite as slow as an analog turntable.
The internal DAC uses a proprietary filter that enables the unit to reproduce a very large bandwidth with low signal compression.
The five transformers super linear power supply of the CDP-500 enables the unit a high quality total control of all the different stages taking care of the critical areas of the unit. The five transformer also allows the unit to have a particularly efficient electronic stability.
The transport motor controlled by a custom Blacknote power generator enables the SACD/CD player to lower the speed fluctuation to less than 0,0001% in any electrical system within 100 to 260 volt range.
Also the power generator electrically isolates the CD Player to guarantee the best sound performances available.
