It doesn't really sound like other disc players. Its sound is reminiscent of a really good analog system but with no noise or dynamic range problems.
Once you've heard the KW SACD/CD Player, you just can't forget that clarity coupled with a delicacy and softness. Audiophile product designed exclusively for super quality stereo. As you'd expect, the kW SACD'S technical performance is shattering. The DAC is configured as dual mono twin differential upsampling at 192k to 24-bits and then 8x oversampled.
This yields an incredible 128dB noise ratio with an equivalent dynamic range. The jitter is extremely low at less than 135 pps.
The noise ratio, however, is even more extraordinary at about -128dB. Linearity is 0.1dB down to 100dB. The DAC and filter stage in the kW SACD are the best in the world, regardless of price. The kW SACD achieves technical performance which puts most products at any price, in the shade.
The output stage is particularly interesting because it is a hybrid tube/class A transistor output stage. You will be able to select either tube or pure class A transistor output modes. But how does it sound it's not like anything we've made before. The pure fine resolution and grain structure of the sound, coupled with amazing detail retrieval, is a new dimension to disc reproduction. This baby allows you to hear right into the dark shadows and corners of the music.It really is that good! Extremely accurate linearity down to very low levels (typically -100dB). Lets you hear right into the far distant corners of the recording. You can hear everything on the recording as it happened on the day. Everything, but everything can be heard. Two output stages operating at the same time (one tube and the other solid state). By connecting both the output stages to your amplifier. You can switch between tube and solid state and select the one which compliments your hi-fi system and your discs on an individual basis. By connecting both the output stages to your amplifier you can switch between tube and solid state and select the one which compliments your hi-fi system and your discs on an individual basis. DAC architecture 24 bit Delta-Sigma (Bitstream) Dual mono dual differential 8x oversampling Separate stages for valve (tube) and solid state outputs. Analog output impedance 50 Ohms.
