Product Description

Emotiva ERC-4 Differential Reference CD Player provides audiophiles with a genuine audiophile-grade CD player so that they can listen their CD’s in the highest possible quality.

Why the ERC-4 CD Player?

The ERC-4 CD Player combines a premium digital CD transport and a balanced DAC in a single unit, and features many inputs and outputs to suit your audio needs. The ERC-4 is an ideal solution to retrieve the best sound quality possible from your CDs or Red Book CD layer of hybrid SACDs. The transport mechanism handles discs gently but firmly and the precision DAC lets you hear every detail and nuance recorded on your discs.

Solid Construction

The ERC-4 CD player is constructed in a heavy reinforced steel chassis to offer a rugged reliability and to stop external influences from interfering with the performance. The precision tray-loading disc mechanism handles discs gently but firmly, without creating any unwanted noise.

State Of The Art Power Supply

A state-of-art switch mode power supply provides clear electrical power with low levels of audible noise and drives the precision DAC section and high-performance ultra-low-distortion analog circuitry.

Audiophile Grade Electronics

The ERC-4 prioritises superb sound quality by using high grade electronics such as SMPS, which ensures a silent noise floor to eliminate audible hum, Analog Devices AD1955 DACs, to deliver excellent sound quality, and low noise UL distortion LM4562 op-amps in the I/V converter, to achieve a top linearity and noise performance.

Output Connections

The ERC-4 Cd player has balanced and unbalanced analog outputs to connect to a wide variety of audio equipment, along with digital outputs so you can use the ERC-4 as a high-quality digital audio transport with a separate DAC.

Input Connections

Coaxial and optical digital audio inputs are included, each accepting stereo PCM digital audio signals up to 24/192k, and each using the same high performance DACs and high grade circuitry so you get the same top quality performances from your digital downloads and other digital audio sources.
