DiVA CD93 (T) CD Player (Discontinued)

Arcam has a long and distinguished history of getting the best out of CD replay and the CD93 represents a significant advance in sound quality, making it one of the finest CD players of its day. The player excels at bringing out low-level detail from the music and has a wonderfully deep and stable soundstage.The DAC module is designed using the best audiophile grade components, including an Analog Devices sample rate converter, four top of the range Wolfson DACs and a four-layer fibreglass printed circuit board (PCB). Considerable use is made of modern surface mounted components, while the extra PCB layers ensure the best possible layout and allow grounding to be optimised.


In order to extract all of the fine detail and depth of sound absent from many other high-end designs, the CD93 uses sophisticated design techniques to ensure that factors such as clock accuracy and jitter, power supplies, digital filters and audio output stages are all optimised. In addition, the strong steel chassis incorporates "Acousteel" sound damping material for better control of low-level vibrations that can blur the sound.

Used in conjunction with a top quality amplifier, such as Arcam's award-winning A85, the CD93 can deliver a stunning musical performance to satisfy the most demanding listeners.

The CD93 was designed in the UK and available in black or silver finishes.
