The CD72 is a wonderful sounding CD player with performance equal to players of its day costing twice as much. The latest generation 24 bit DAC from Burr Brown and a main motherboard, incorporating the latest thinking on grounding and power supplies, provided the player with a sound that captivates all who listen. Arcam CD players have always offered a well balanced and detailed sound, but the CD72 represents a significant step forward. The quality of the sound is complemented by the superb build quality. The whole design is upgradable to the CD92 if you decide to improve your system.
