Precision SA-CD/CD Transport.

The centerpiece of the Accuphase DP-950 is its ultra-massive SA-CD/CD drive with highly rigid, high-precision construction. 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.

External vibrations reliably blocked by super-massive sturdy chassis 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). 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.

Dedicated digital output only SA-CD/CD transport for highly accurate signal pickup

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 and custom-made filtering capacitors

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.

Chucking magnet using neodymium is designed to firmly and evenly hold the disc to prevent wobble

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