NuPrime CDP-9 CD Player DAC Preamplifier

NuPrime Audio Logo

The NuPrime CDP-9 is a highly accurate CD player with an integrated high-end DAC and preamp. A powerful DSP-based decoder that provides all Red Book error-correction capabilities with master-clock control of the entire decoding system, thus lowering jitter significantly.

The transport's single speed minimises vibration and unbalanced discs. The high-performance DAC, together with a selectable sampling rate converter for the digital output (up to 32bit/768kHz and DSD512) converts the CD format to either SPDIF at highest sampling rate or DSD format up to DSD512.


Highly Accurate CD Playback

A powerful ARM chip LPC2103F CD reads, writes and controls error correction

Philips SAA7824HL high-end laser reads/writes head control and decodes chips

Supports CD-DA CD-R, CD-RW

Algorithm reduces digital interference and jitter

Sampling Rate Converter

•The sampling rate of any digital inputs, including CD playback, can be converted up or down between PCM and DSD, from 44.1kHz to 768kHz or DSD64 to DSD512

The conversion is achieved by up-sampling to mega hertz before down converting to the targeted sampling rate with ultra-low jitter and distortion

Headphone Amp

High performance op-amp headphone amp

Compatible OS

Exclusive driver software for Windows
Standard driver software for Mac

Power and Mechanical

•Low power consumption in Standby Mode•
Available in black or silver anodised aluminium finish
