Main Highlights and Design Features :

The Philips CDM 12 Pro 2 metal chassis has been significantly customized by METRONOME TECHNOLGIE and provides a stable foundation to very accurately capture the signal.

The Delrin clamp and proprietary shaft designed by METRONOME TECHNOLGIE permit a better stability of the CD and consequently to reproduce the best possible sound with a low jitter.

Continuous ground link from the disc surface to the electrical earth permits the dissipation of static electricity for better working conditions of electronic and optical components.

The power supply with individual power transformers and completely independent regulation lines for each critical part of the transport - display, servo mechanism, motor, digital output stage - provides an inter-stage EMI/RFI radiation protection and insures a dynamic analog-like sound quality.

The T5 becomes T6 with a high front plate and in a T8 with external ELEKTRA power supply.
