CES 2012 - Jadis Orphhe CD player
Like the Ypsilon and Oracle players, Jadis uses the same Philips Pro mechanism. It uses an Analog Devices 24bit DAC and all the analog section is valve-based, as you would expect from this particular manufacturer.
The look is definitely retro-Jadis, and it is also a top loader, not the easiest machine to fit in an installation.
A USB connector gives you access to the internal DAC, separately from the CD player.
Very few specs are available for this product, so it is a matter of listening tests only, obviously difficult to appraise at a Show.
What I would expect is a good integration with Jadis electronics to provide a balanced, warm and musical sound, evidence of which was definitely there at the Show.
