Le Player is the last-in-date integrated CD player from Métronome laboratories, and was unveiled at CES in Las Vegas January 2015.

This CD player combines the high requirement quality standards of Métronome and a fabulous reproduction of sound.

Main Highlights and Design Features

The transport mechanism from Philips was customized by Métronome, in particular for the top-loading requirements.

Continuous ground link from the disc surface to the electrical earth permits the dissipation of static electricity for better working conditions for electronic and
optical components.

The power supply with individual power transformers and completely independent regulation lines for each critical part of the transport - display, servo mechanism, motor, digital output stage - provides an inter-stage EMI/RFI radiation protection and insures a dynamic analog-like sound quality.

Le Player is only available in Silver finishing
