Everything about the ERC-3 was designed to extract the best possible performance from your discs. Pick it up and feel the rock solid 21-pound chassis. Strategically placed steel dampers add additional mass loading, reducing vibration and resonance to negligible levels. Feel the smooth action of the high-reliability tray loading mechanism. We spared no detail in creating a tough, precise, and gentle playback platform for your treasured discs.
The legendary Analog Devices AD1955 Multi-Segment Delta-Sigma DAC’s joined to our all new Differential Reference™ analog circuitry deliver class-leading audio performance, whether you’re looking at the numbers or listening to the end result. You don’t need an external DAC for a nuanced, engaging, and resolving musical presentation with the ERC-3—just connect the balanced or unbalanced analog outputs and get ready to hear what you have been missing.
Already own a great DAC? The ERC-3 is also a top-class digital transport, providing optical, coaxial, and AES/EBU digital outputs to interface with your DAC of choice.
Do you have MP3 CDs, HDCDs, or Hybrid SACDs? The ERC-3 plays them all. Sit back and use the included solid machined aluminum remote control to stage a command performance you’ll remember!
