Enjoy stereo sound from CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, data CDs, and compatible USB drives with the Silver Yamaha CD-S303 CD Player. It uses a 192 kHz / 24-bit digital-to-analog converter for detailed audio reproduction from the stereo RCA analog output, or you can use your own DAC via the optical or digital coaxial outputs. A remote control and stereo RCA cable are included as an added convenience.

Designed to Deliver Enjoyable Sound Quality

Inheriting many of the sound quality features of the high-end CD player components, the CD-S303 CD player delivers sound that will satisfy devoted music fans. In addition to CDs, it also provides high-quality playback of music files stored on USB memory devices via a USB port on the front panel.

Sophisticated Circuitry and Layout

Yamaha technicians devoted a great deal of time and effort to designing the overall interior layout of parts and circuit boards, a factor that significantly affects sound quality. As a result, the power supplies for the motor drive, display, and USB sections, as well as the digital and analog sections, are individually isolated, eliminating electromagnetic interference among them. To achieve ideal weight balance for stable performance, the drive mechanism is located in the center of the unit.

Short Signal Paths

The logical and symmetrical internal layout of parts and circuit boards are designed to keep the signal paths on each board as short as possible. This purposeful design also keeps the paths between sections straight and short, minimizing the chance of signal loss or interference.

Pure Direct Mode

The CD-S303 offers Pure Direct Mode, which is the same popular feature included in Yamaha amplifiers and receivers. By pressing the button on the front panel or on the remote control, it shuts down the digital audio output and turns off the display. This achieves the lowest possible noise interference and, therefore, the highest sound quality of the analog audio output.

Well-Matched, High-Quality Parts

Each of the individual elements in a CD player influences the sound quality, which is why Yamaha puts a great deal of effort into the selection and matching of parts and materials. A high-grade acoustic capacitor, a low-noise, high-gain bandwidth op amp, and the use of damping material under the transformer and around the signal cables are just a few examples of the Yamaha commitment to great sound quality.

High-Performance D/A Converter

Utilizing a 192 kHz/24-bit DAC, the high-performance D/A conversion system takes full advantage of the digital technology refined by Yamaha over a period of many years, ensuring excellent conversion precision, S/N ratio, and dynamic range.

Enjoy Your MP3, WMA, LPCM, AAC, and FLAC Music

The USB port on the front panel gives you an easy way to enjoy high-quality sound from MP3, WMA, LPCM, AAC, or FLAC digital music files stored on USB memory devices. You can also play files recorded on CD-R/RW discs.

Laser Pickup Floating Mechanism

The laser pickup is isolated on a floating mechanism so its delicate operation cannot be affected by vibration.

Intelligent Digital Servo

Conventional tracking servo circuitry cannot completely overcome errors caused by a warped disc, dust, and other defects. This system uses a dependable DSP, exclusive for CDs, to monitor the signal, adjusting pickup tracking and focus, as well as spindle motor speed, to compensate for any problems.

3-Mode CD Text Display

Information about the currently playing CD is shown right on the CD player’s display. The 3-mode CD Text display shows the CD’s title, the artist’s name, and the title of the track.

Program Play (Audio CDs Only)

It’s easy to program the tracks you want to hear in any order. You can clear the program at any time with a single touch.

 The latest addition to the new Marantz MusicLink series is the HD-CD1, a high-quality CD player in the same compact form as the HD-AMP1 amplifier, for which it is the perfect match. Combining more than 30 years of Marantz expertise in compact disc playback with the latest developments in digital audio technology, it's ideal for use as a CD transport when used with the HD-AMP1, or as a CD player in any situation where a compact form-factor is required without any compromise on sound quality. Small it may be, but it makes use of state-of-the-art Marantz technology carried over from our Award-winning CD players, including a high-resolution 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter from Cirrus Logic, a high-accuracy system clock, and the famous Marantz HDAM-SA2 amplifier modules, as found in our flagship Reference Series CD players and amplifiers. Selected components are also used throughout the audio signal path, for the very best reproduction of your music. A centralized CD mechanism, able to play MP3, WMA and AAC files as well as standard CDs, is also used for ultra-accurate disc-reading and, along with its analog audio outputs, optical and coaxial digital connections are provided, allowing the HD-CD1 to be connected directly to the HD-AMP1's ultra-high-quality digital-to-analog conversion. The HD-CD1 also features the stylish MusicLink design, with a solid aluminum front panel, double-layer chassis for vibration isolation and retro-style side panels. It also includes a high-quality integral headphone amplifier with adjustable gain to drive high-end headphones for personal listening and comes complete with a remote control for all its functions, also able to 'drive' a complete system of HD-CD1 and HD-AMP1. It's a superb Marantz CD player—in miniature!

Key to the audiophile performance offered by the CXC CD transport is our S3 servo solution. The vast majority of optical drives in use today are designed with computers in mind. While they can read all manner of disc media, they lack the precision and finesse of a dedicated audio drive. To address this, we have written our own software to precisely control the driveʼs laser and motor assembly.

  SIMPLIFYING THE SIGNAL PATH

The CXC is simplicity itself to setup and use, because we handle digital to analogue conversion in our amplifiers. Thereʼs a good reason behind this philosophy. Maintaining the audio signal in the digital domain for as long as possible minimises potential analogue signal degradation. Our CXC transport has one job to do and it does it very well indeed.

 

Our proprietary Cambridge S3 servo solution effectively turns a universal disc drive into a dedicated CD spinner; it can calibrate and monitor the speed of the disc, holding it steady and constant. By managing where the laser head is and what itʼs reading, as well as maximising error correction, we can get the maximum amount of clean data off the disc as possible, with the minimum jitter.

BUILT TO LAST

The CXC utilises a low-resonance acoustically damped metal chassis, with an ultra-clean low noise power supply. Beneath the hood, our PCB design employs double-sided surface mount technology, which eliminates wire links and ensures an ultra short signal path, thereby reducing signal deterioration.

C-BUS POWER SYNCING

Cambridge C-BUS connection means that one remote can be used to power on and off both CXC and CXA in sync.
