Gold Note Favard Anniversary state of the art CD player


The Favard is the top player of the state-of-the-art Diamond Line, featuring top class design in digital and analogue stage, unique twelve tubes design and the most massive power supply ever made for a digital source. The transport mechanism model JPL2580 is the drawer type supplied by Austrian StreamUnlimited a high professional specialised high-end audio spare parts company. It is made of aluminium and it enables the smoothest possible rotational stability reducing the speed fluctuation as well. 

The Favard features a twelve tubes design: eight tubes are dedicated to the Class A output dual mono gain stage while the other four rectify the power supply to achieve an incredibly smooth audio signal.

The extended use of superior class components such as high quality capacitors and resistors redefine new standards in the digital players’ world market. 

The Favard is powered by a double battery automatic rechargeable power supply and eight linear transformers inductive design driving four tubes working as rectifiers.

The Double Battery power supply drives the analogue stage to achieve the best noiseless audio purity.

The massive eight linear transformers inductive power supply, drive the Class A analogue tube output stage. Besides the inductive power supply drives all the digital stages and the mechanic transport guaranteeing perfect stability control.

The Favard features a twelve tube design; eight tubes are dedicated to the Class A output dual mono gain stage while the other four rectify the power supply to achieve an incredibly smooth audio signal.

The extended use of the superior class components such as high quality capacitors and resistors redefines new standards in the digital players’ world market.

The very high mass chassis is also able to control the energy of vibration feedback featuring a high class cosmetic solution that perfectly matches the Demidoff units as well.

The Favard is available in a variety of options being a digital transport unit only but it is even offered as a fully equipped unit featuring DAC solution with four coaxial digital inputs and one USB 24/192 High Speed asynchronous port conveniently converting the signal of any other digital source offering best top solutions.

The Favard features optionally an exclusive atomic master clock virtually eliminating the digital audio jitter problem that creates phase error signal.
