This tube CD player was initially launched In 2003. Over the past 11 years, it has gone through quite a few changes to today's MKIII HD version, which includes a 24bit/192khz DAC chip with a superclock.

The past versions have been reviewed many times in North America, UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands. You can read all reviews on the manufacturers website link here

The tube output uses a single 6H30 tube - it makes regular playback very smooth and relaxing. Our tube of choice, the Russian military 6H30, is not only considered an excellent sounding tube but is also very linear. 

The new RCD2.2MKIII HD CD player allows for a digital input from Consonance own high definition digital music interface D-linear7 as well as from other cd transports, cable TV decoders or satellite receivers, either through the CD player's co-axial or optical inputs or with any other device with a digital PCM output. This will not only provide high quality audio but also is very easy to use. The DAC inside is a true balanced direct output from the DAC chip, creating a very pleasing, natural sound.
