What Hi-Fi? Awards 2021: First Winners Announced 4th October!
|Hi there People,|
does anyone out there remember the manufacturer or model number of a passive box which was to be introduced between the CD analogue output and the CD input of the amplifier. This was in the early days of CD (mid 80s ?) and it was "supposed" to make CD sound less digital.
As far as I remember this box was designed to emulate some of the physical characteristics (failings?) of a cartridge, I think crosstalk was mentioned as the main idea behind it. I also seem to remember it was a sealed unit with flying phono leads so it
would replace the existing CD to AMP phono lead. I think it was about the size of a cigarette packet and filled with gunk so how it worked and what it contained could not be ascertained. Pretty sure this was about the time Mr Jimmy Hughes was featured a lot in the magazine.
I never heard it; I am just trying to remember what it was
thanks in advance
