Product Description

Tim de Paravicini’s Brilliant Tube CD Player! 

TAS Editor’s Choice Award Winner! 

The new EAR Acute CD Player from brilliant audio engineer Tim de Paravicini of E.A.R. is one of the most unique designs in the history of digital audio. The Acute uses a specially designed transformer-coupled tube output stage, which give this player one of the most uncolored and musical sonic presentations you’ll ever hear. Utilizing the highly regarded Wolfson 24bit/96k DAC combined with Tim’s unbeatable analog output stage gives the Acute one the sweetest and extended presentations.

“[The Acute] was smooth in away that does not suppress information or add euphony. It is blessedly neutral in its character and its reproduction of the human voice is quite simply excellent. …Oh yes, this unit works flawlessly, unlike the other and more individualistic players!”
-- Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound, August and October 2006

This player uses a pair of 6DJ8s (6922s) in the output stage, as these are a favorite of Tim’s. Tube swappers can have a blast with this player! This CD player also has enough gain to drive an amplifier directly with an all-analog volume control. We used this player at this year’s Stereophile Show in Los Angeles and everyone was just floored by the stunning dynamics and real analog warmth this player delivered. This has quickly become one of our favorite new CD players! Get one into your system and hear what the Acute can do for your CD collection!
