Accuphase DP-700 SA-CD Player (Used) $6,900.00 – SOLD

SKU: 3482 Category:


This was one of the best SA-CD Players ever manufactured.

When Accuphase introduced the ultimate separate-type SA-CD/CD player, the models DP-800 and DC-801, a new epoch in audio history had begun.
Garnering worldwide acclaim both for their technological excellence and sound quality, the transport and processor pair has become the new reference for SA-CD reproduction. The new DP-700 is an integrated type SA-CD player incorporating that very same state-of-the-art technology.
In the transport section, a dedicated DSP chip controls the digital servo to assure accurate readout of the signal recorded on the SA-CD. Another vital aspect is the single-lens/twin laser diode pickup mounted to a high-speed positioning mechanism, providing a significant improvement in read access times and accuracy.
The processor section features the innovative MDSD principle forming a sophisticated moving average filter circuit, together with the MDS++ D/A system that keeps conversion errors to an absolute minimum and at the same time acts as high-cut filter efficiently removing noise components in the high frequency domain.
Internally, the transport and processor sections of the DP-700 are kept entirely separate. Digital inputs allow independent use of the processor section for external sources to enjoy music reproduction with the same superb quality.

Some of the features are:

  • High-rigidity, high-precision SA-CD/CD drive
  • Innovative digital signal processor with MDSD technology
  • MDS++ D/A converter with eight DACs driven in parallel
  • “Ultra Jitter-Free Plus” PLL circuit
  • “Direct Balanced Filter” with totally separate balanced and unbalanced signal paths
  • Transport outputs and digital inputs m Accuphase HS-Link digital interface

This Player was originally sold by us, and is in excellent condition, except for a small chip on the front perspex.

It is a one owner unit, and comes complete with all original packaging.  It was recently traded in on a Chord Blu2 and Dave DAC.
