Product catchline.

Show stopping.

When the CD-77 came along, we blew the competition away with high-octane, Bit-Perfect audio.

The CD-777 does everything its predecessor could – then runs with it.
Music just got a whole lot better.

A different league.

What sets the CD-777 apart is its flexibility, comprising of several features, including its:

  1. High-end CD processor
  2. Ability to receive a digital signal from your laptop through USB or S/PDIF
  3. Capacity to send digital signals to an external DAC or laptop

And don’t let the CD-777’s compact size put you off either – it may be small, but it punches above its weight division.

The tech spec.

The CD-777 also includes our OptiSample® technology:

  • Digital Master I
  • Digital Master II

Which means, along with its predecessor, the CD-77, it’s one of only a handful of devices that play genuine Bit-Perfect audio.

A love rekindled.

Bringing superb tonal rendering to your CD collection and producing a more natural sound, the CD-777 will make you fall in love with music again.
