Accuphase DP-1000 Precision SACD Transport



Precision SA-CD/CD Transport.

The centerpiece of the Accuphase DP-1000 is its ultra-massive SA-CD/CD drive with highly rigid, high-precision construction and low centre or gravity.

This is complemented by an ultra-strong power supply featuring two high-efficiency toroidal transformers and an array of filtering capacitors. The result is an SA-CD/CD transport that delivers a digital signal of unsurpassed purity.


Highly rigid and precise construction

The SA-CD/CD drive is mounted firmly to a strong aluminum frame, and the drive loading mechanism and mechanical base form a massive and highly rigid chassis of considerable weight (total 11.7 kg). The drive unit also has a lower placement than its predecessor for a lower centre or gravity and increased stbility.

Conversely, the traverse mechanism, an integrated structure consisting of the optical assembly including laser pickup and rotating parts, is designed for extremely light weight and isolated from the loading mechanism by a floating suspension arrangement. A large, super-heavy bridge machined from a single block of aluminum is joined to the mechanism base to form an integrated structure.

Programmable playlist function

The Accuphase DP-1000 supports the programmable playlist function. Select your track playing order, then sit back and enjoy your music, your way.

Dedicated SA-CD/CD transport

A digital servo system with a dedicated DSP for control of the optical pickup and the various motors allows optimized operation for SA-CD and CD media respectively, assuring stable and highly accurate signal readout.


Strong power supply with high-efficiency toroidal transformers

Two separate high-efficiency toroidal transformers in conjunction with ten specially made high-quality filtering capacitors (4,700 μF/35 V) are used to separately power the SA-CD/CD drive mechanism and the signal processing section. The result is a perfectly stable digital signal of high accuracy.

A firm and even hold 

The 8-pole magnetized yoke of the magnet ensures uniform force to securely clasp the turntable and the disc to prevent disc wobble.
