CD Players - CS4396-KS based CD players
As we are falling in "love" with the CS-4396 created by Crystal, which is for us the BEST DAC ever made even if now there are new components, we propose some CD players using it.

There is not a lot of products using this chip: 2 from Italy, 6 from UK and 3 from Asia, without forgetting the outstanding COUNTERPOINT DA-10 upgrade performed by Mike ELLIOTT in the USA, which is deeply reviewed on this site.


JOLIDA- SHENDA (CHINA)

Not cool: this JOLIDA version is only for the US and Asia markets. So here in Europe no 4396 !.


NORTH-STAR (ITALY)

Yes, it's a long period since this NORTH STAR product started to be manufactured. Very slim and great perfomances.
Italians have understood before all the others companies the power of Crystal, but they do not have the commercial surface to be the first.
North Star Model 192 DAC


OPERA (CHINA)

A new asian brand well knowed in Asia.
As usual, perfect box and lights and great performances.
Consonance CD120


CREEK (UK)

They have never said anything but they always do a great job like the Italians. Here is the CREEK website.
A perfect match with the Crystal products made in England.

QUAD (UK)
