The digital/ analog conversion circuitry features a fully balanced design with a minimal- length signal path. Featuring a balanced (XLR) output in addition to the normal RCA output, the CD3800 offers best-of-its-class music reproduction when combined with a fully-balanced amplifier such as CEC’s AMP 3800.
