A new aluminum loader tray modeled after that of the CD 306 Professional Version adds elegance and greater disc handling care. Four Burr Brown 1792u digital to analog (D/A) converter chips run in a true balanced parallel offering an extremely low jitter D/A converter. A word about jitter is in order. The master clock jitter is below measurable levels, utilizing a digital buffer circuit. In other words, the data stream read from the disc is stored in RAM buffer circuits and then released to the D/A conversion.

The new CD 303T SACD Professional Version will up-sample a Redbook CD disc from 44.1 kHz to 96, 192, 384, 512 or 768 kHz to release all the information available from your disc library. This is the fourth generation of the Cary Audio Design CD 303 series of CD players. The Cary player simply gets the music across to you in a well balanced, "grab you by the throat," viscerally captivating way. Nothing stands out as being either excessive or lacking. All without a hint of stridency, glare, grit, or other digital nasties, often misinterpreted as detail and resolution. The Cary CD 303T SACD Professional version is another true "tour de force" CD and SACD player in the Cary Audio Design stable.

The new Cary Audio Design CD 303T SACD Professional Version is now shipping.
