Quite simply, the AMS CD is the finest digital product we’ve ever made. It combines reference-standard CD playback with a multi-input DAC; it’s the true hi-fi heart of a modern music system.

The AMS CD uses the best possible CD transport mechanism, which is further optimised by being paired with our upsampling DAC design and a unique power-supply suite.

As well as being applied to CD playback, all the sonic benefits of the 24bit/192kHz DAC are available to other digital devices via optical and coaxial and balanced inputs.

From spinning disc to streamed music, digital data is faithfully retrieved and converted, with the absolute minimum of jitter, noise and distortion. The outstanding results are fed on to the amplification of your choice via a pure Class A output stage.

All this plus the premium build quality and fabulous finish found across the entire AMS range. The AMS CD is a reference source you’ll be proud to own and love to listen to.
