The CD-Two MKIII

The new version of a very high quality top loader with perfect sound and great look and feel. A complete hand made CD-Player with CD-Pro2LF developed with understood - built with heart and soul.


The housing was originated 10 years ago and was improved again and again.

Features of the housing:

  • acoustic damped spike feet
  • a multiple bottom made of one aluminium panel (4 mm) and a sub bottom made of special acrylic plastic: very hard and acoustic neutral
  • this combination brings the best resonance absorption
  • in combination with the very stable metal frame the chassis is very stable and impervious against resonances and sub frequencies from the bottom.
  • The top is close with a panel with 4mm thickness
  • the CD-Pro rests in a sub-chassis that fits perfectly and damped the last sonic from the outside and damped also the resonances from the inside.
  • The CD-Pro is recessed  mounted and covered by a multiple cover panel with thickness of 12 mm. (two acrylic panels and one metal panel)

This combination and the the felt inside the CD manhole ensures that no light and sound comes from the outside.

 

The CD-Two - Player is a Top loader of the top class. Here the CD-Pro-2 LF / VAU1254/31LF transport from Philips is used. The module is characterized by a very good error correction and robustness. The CD-Pro2LF consists of a die cast metal frame and a high-quality scanning unit. The transport is mounted in damping stored cabinet.
Together with the mechanical characteristics (weight:12kg) and the complex power supply this provides for a sound on highest level. The digital output is characterized by its very good re-clocking PLL jitter reduction and its output line driver with high current and handmade transformer for AES/EBU and s/pdif output format.

Also installed is a direct I2S output.

The main AC input is filtered with a two stage filtering system. First a integrated filter in the main connector and second a discrete filter section. All important wires are equipped with ferrite powder rings to prevent high frequency disturbances.CD-2_3_klein.JPG

PLL-Recklock System

By the circuit the following improvements are possible, which depend naturally strongly on the input signal and on the following DAC entry stage:

It works all more calmly and more cleared up. The woman's voices are very silky. The high frequencies are less sharp. Everything works more vividly and more audible.

Structure:

The jitter killer corrects the jitters of the afflicted input signals. The time errors of the input are revised by a PLL circuit (phase locked loop). (The PLL is an electronic switching configuration, which corrects the phase position and coherently with the frequency of a changeable oscillator in such a way over a closed automatic control loop affected that as small a phase deviation between an outside reference signal and the oscillator.)
The PLL inserts time correct flanks and separates the signal levels of useless flanks.
From the input signal the PLL wins a sturdy clock pulse, synchronously with that
original beat of the input signal runs. - thus without jitters.

The woman's voices are very silky. The high frequencies are less sharp. Everything works more vividly and more audible.

What does the customers say  CD-Two MKII :

Roman Bargarada, Russian Federation said to the complete CD-Two MKII Transport  with jitter killer:

“Horst, very good Player!!!
Sound dynamic, transparent with a good resolution.
I have "CD transport II" by Audio note (UK, Peter Kwortrup). Good  device. But WENZEL PRODUCTION much, much, much better.
I was very pleasantly surprised for your product.
Maybe I need additional one or two CD transports. Also after a while I  need a DAC.”


Frederic Granger, Switzerland said to the complete CD-Two MKII Transport with jitter-Kiler

Your player is an amazing machine;-)

Now clearly better than my Mephisto in every  domain, like:
-Dynamic, detail ,neutral, timbres and  soundstage...Everywhere! It was not the case in the begining but I was sure that  the burn in would be all benefit for it.”


Francois B., Switzerland

The Player:
Is really fantastic. I am very glad with it. It changes the whole intallation, it is a real "plus". It's the best Player I have ever heard. You can be proud of your work and you must be well-known.
