In more detail

The 351C features a host of top grade components including our house-designed, audio-only CD transport which is coupled to Cambridge Audio’s third generation proprietary S3 servo solution. Explaining how it works is akin to rocket science but anyone who loves music, cannot fail to be moved by the way it sucks data from discs, processes it with incredibly low distortion and most importantly, delivers amazingly dynamic sound to your ears.

351C CD player internal Key components:

1. Custom CD servo
2. Custom CD transport
3. Toroidal transformer

Warm yet incredibly detailed...

The new 351C carries over the latest Wolfson WM8728 DAC from its award-winning predecessor but the whole design has been subtly retuned for an even richer performance and sensational levels of detail from music of all types.

And like its amplifier partner - the 351A - this amazing CD player also benefits from a superior toroidal transformer which offers much less noise and distortion than lower cost laminate transformers which are more commonplace amongst the competition.
