AURUM C3

The C3 doesn’t just look related to the top-of-the-line C5 CD player but shares some of its technical refinements. An intricate process allows the laser unit to calibrate itself. Continuous adjustment of focus tracking and EF balance ensures maximum readout precision — even years from now! A complex passive secondary filter separates the analogue and digital circuitry from each other. Therefore, sound information gets to the amplifier at the right time, with uncompromised authenticity.

Digital technology:

Using a technically demanding process, the CD player’s laserunit constantly under goes automatic alignment and calibration. Because the digital component’s focus tracking and EFbalance are regularly aligned, the device plays all CDs with extreme precision — even years down the road.

For AURUM CD players, AURUM’s developers exclusively use24bit/192KHz Burr Brown D/A converters.

The outstanding converter of the new C5 DA is now able to beused as external D/A-converter as well.

Analogue technology:

To design the highest level of acoustic behaviour into the AURUM CD player, Bessel filters are installed for optimal pulse transmission.

For the audio paths, AURUM developers use BIFET operational amplifiers, making AURUM CD player especially low in noise and distortion. They also transmit a very broad frequency response.The result is a significant increase in music reproduction dynamics.

For the signal paths, our engineers exclusively use premium, Germanmade Polypropylene film capacitors, no lossy electrolytic capacitors. This type of signal transmission very effectively minimizes distortion. Various innovative filters see to it that AURUM CD players operate trouble free.

For the AURUM C3 and C5 DA, particularly quiet drive motors are used.

Power supply technology:

AURUM CD players are designed with a technically complex passive secondary filter. This separates the analogue band from the digital band, so that the two bands don’t influence each other. The result is significant sound improvement versus conventionally designed units.

The AURUM Standby eco-adapter consumes less than 0.5 watts of power.

The transformers have been developed especially for AURUM Electronic. They use innovative spot welding technology and minimize the power adapter’s electromagnetic field. This allows the Equipment to operate trouble-free, and all AURUM CD players of the same series have the same fascinating sound.

Symmetric disturbances are in every power grid, and asymmetric disturbances through a device’s housing or mass negatively influence an amplifier’s acoustic behaviour. However, these are eliminated by a broadband power filter, guaranteeing the greatest possible music enjoyment. Another special filter prevents annoying hum from the toroidal transformer.
