Vincent CD-S1.2: Fully Balanced Hybrid CD player

The Vincent Audio CD-S1.2 hybrid CD player is equipped with a Philips transport mechanism with a classic front tray (plays CDs and HDCDs) and a USB port, through which the player can serve as an external DAC for a computer – the new product has a Burr-Brown PCM1796 circuit (24 bit/192 kHz). The output decoupling of the built-in preamplifier (this is what makes the player a hybrid) is made using two 6N16 tubes. At the same time, the new product is made entirely according to a balanced design.
