The CD62 followed on from the phenomenal reaction to Arcam's CD72 which is a recognized world beating design. Arcam looked at ways of reducing the cost of producing a DiVA CD player that offers most of the CD72's performance by stripping away the upgrade path to a CD92. The power supply that is needed to support the extra circuitry of a Ring DAC is no longer required to be quite so large and is therefore cheaper. The use of a simpler and cheaper remote as well as using a less sophisticated chassis construction makes the CD62 a leaner but no less mean machine. The output stage is also simpler and uses an AC coupled output stage rather than the more sophisticated servo assisted DC coupled stage used in the CD72.
