FMJ CD23 Compact Disc Player

The first product that incorporated this custom chip set was the Alpha 9 CD player. This player has astonished the most experienced listeners in the hi-fi community and has been the subject of rave reviews from around the world. The goal of the FMJ team was to improve on this already superb player. To achieve this the CD23 has a new motherboard and a totally new power supply configuration. We have added a high quality toroidal transformer to supply the sensitive audio circuitry in the Ring DAC converter board. The player will also decode the latest HDCD discs. The extra rigidity provided by the precision machined 8 mm thick aluminium alloy front panel also contributes to a performance that is so assured you will find new life in even your oldest CDs.

CD23 Text version

Introduced towards the end of 2001, the CD23 Text version incorporates the new Sony mechanism which supports CD text and improved CD-RW replay capability. Other features include:

  • New dual layer motherboard, with improved power supply grounding and buffering of clocks and audio data to give a cleaner signal
  • New Ring DAC board which reduces distortion in the audio band
  • Improved master clock and clock output distribution circuitry on the Ring DAC board
