Description:


Privilege was the first CD Player built by Monrio. Launched in 1997, the Privilege was the beginning of an uninterrupted series of CD Player characterized by excellent musicality and an aesthetics almost always innovative and particular. Thanks to the long experience in achieving and testing different circuit solutions in the analogue section and D / A conversion, we were able to achieve a world-class CD Player with excellent musical characteristic and construction; the Top Loader Type 3.

The Top Loader Type 3 was born in 2007, is distinguished by its exclusive and original aesthetics matched to a very good electric characteristics but also by its high cost due to the material used and to its complex construction.

Strengthened by this experience, we wanted to make a CDP of equal musical characteristic - if not higher, because in the meantime we were able to experiment with new technology in both digital and analogue section. - but with more affordable cost by simplifying the mechanical construction..

Solid and elegant, the Top Loader Type 2 CD Player combines aesthetics design with the latest and most advanced in digital technology. Combined with the best digital and a fully differential circuit topology with dual-triode vacuum gain and solid state regulation - located directly on the audio circuit board -, the Top Loader Type 2 is a remarkable performer. Power Supply stage, DAC stage and Output stage are isolated electronically and mechanically from the mechanism via a separate chassis. An aluminium stabilizer centers the disc and provides good vibration absorption and achieves strong clamping force without affecting laser performance. The TOP LOADER Type 2 CD Player is housed in a custom built extruded aluminium case and includes a strong base assembly that ensure the maximum stability to the mechanical part. The massive aluminium case permit a lowest resonance across the full system The chassis rests on four stainless steel spikes fitted with aluminium pads designed to decouple the unit from the rest of the system. Digital-to-Analogue stage consists of two Sigma/Delta, 24 bit/192kHz converter. Chosen after careful comparison between the best DAC on the market and after extensive listening tests. Power supply is made up from 10 separate power supplyís feeding the mechanism, micro controller, display, clock circuit, DAC digital and analogue section and output stage. It consist of two parts design - one dedicated to the reading mechanism, servo digital and user control and the other for DAC and output stage amplifiers - with individual power transformers and complete independent lines power.


Analogue output stage uses two 12AU7 triodes, the audio stage features high-voltage regulation using high-voltage transistors coupled to a massive power supply. There are two physically separate printed circuit board for the servo and digital circuits (motor drivers etc.) and for the DAC and output stage. The TOP LOADER Type 2 has a generously rated toroidal transformer with separate windings for the high-voltage, filament, DAC digital and analogue power supply. Jitter-reducing benefits of the I2S bus - which transports the audio and clock data separately instead of merging them, as is done with both AES/EBU and S/PDIF standards. It uses a single master clock for the transport and digital processor section. Balanced analogue output is via a pair of XLR jacks, and single-ended output is from RCAs. Digital output is from coaxial on RCA jacks.

Selection of the highest quality components throughout the digital-to-analogue chain, and superior component placement and chassis design help render as full and distortion free the signal output as possible.

Description:


Transient MKII Asynchronous USB Converter


A versatile asynchronous 24 bit/192k USB converter featuring an XMOS based circuit, low-jitter clocks, multiple digital outputs, Wolfson DAC and high-resolution volume control.


Features

Audio Circuit

The heart of the system is our XMOS based circuit utilizing extremely low-jitter clocks. Multiple digital outputs are available via isolated 75 ohm BNC (with included 75 ohm RCA adapter) and two individually buffered I2S outputs.


High Quality DAC

In addition to the digital outputs, Transient also provides Digital to Analog conversion. The conversion is done by a Wolfson circuit with a built-in high resolution volume control and 2V RMS output. A microprocessor circuit allows configuration for fixed (line level) output, or variable volume control, and also indicates the sampling frequency of the incoming signal.


Chassis and Build

Highest quality parts are used throughout: Nichicon Muse & 2% tolerance polypropylene power supply capacitors, Takman resistors and WIMA polypropylene capacitors for signal circuits, and Canare BNC connector. The shielded anti-resonant chassis is 1/8 thick T6061 aluminum with 3/16” thick front panel, and all hardware is non-magnetic stainless steel.


Runs off the grid

The Transient is powered by the USB cable so you can plug into your computer audio and take it on the go. Our VDC-5 MKII Upgrade Power Supply can be connected to the DC Input port for improved performance.
