Stemfoort SFCD-200 Compact Disc Player


Stemfoort SFCD-200 Compact Disc Player

The SFCD-200 is designed to complement the Stemfoort SF-200 Passive Line Power Amplifier. Utilising a high speed transport mechanism and on board memory, the SFCD-200 is a technically advanced CD player. To reduce jitter and control errors during play back there is a dedicated transceiver circuit, this re-formats data prior to the digital to analogue converter. A unique conversion method is employed without oversampling or filtering in the digital domain, instead Stemfoort chose an analogue filter allowing a very wide bandwidth.

Important as technology is in the digital domain, the potential can only be realised if the analogue output is capable of producing a high quality sound. The use of a class A output stage and trans-impedance amplifier ensures superb sound. A useful additional feature of the SFCD-200 is a digital input. This allows the connection of an external source like a music streamer or AV component.

As with the SF-200, top grade materials are used throughout the SFCD-200’s body work. Other case materials are steel or aluminium that have either been anodised, galvanised or powder coated to protect the finish and maintain appearance during many years of use. All fine finishing is carried out at in-house to ensure complete quality control.
