S507 top loading mechanism-like analog players



Inheriting the sound quality of the model S303A "notebook CD Player", this new model also has a non-oversampling D/A converter built in at a minimal size, and is finished as an integrated CD player.


From our investigations, we successfully improved the technology to further reduce the noise level, enhancing the fine expressive power. S507 is compatible as a high-end CD transport, where two digital output types (S/PDIF, I2S) are supported: CD transport type (S507t) with or without built-in DAC. As for the built-in DAC models, there are two types of signal modes available: conventional voltage-mode (S507v) and a new approach current-mode (S507i). Once you listen to the sound quality of current-mode (S507i), you will never forget the sound quality!

How does the voltage-mode and the current-mode work?

By adopting superior current-mode signaling in exchanging audio signals, dramatic progress is made from the conventional audio system to significantly improve the purity of the sound quality.

Sparkler Audio  - model S304: nostalgia      $775.00

Broadcast FM/AM Tuner (analog tuned DSP radio)


In the quiet of  the evening, we sometimes look forward in listening to   voices from distant, far off places. We switch on the radio, turn the dial and tune in to our favorite broadcast. We have long been familiar with the analog tuning dial since the first crystal radio set was developed. With the addition of a DSP (digital signal processor) chip, analog tuned radios have been reborn with the model S304. Incredibly clear, distortion free, and high class listening have been achieved with the DSP and fully discrete buffered amplifier. The model S304 analog tuner supports both FM stereo and AM (MW) band frequencies that can be switched from the front panel.

Easy to operate.  The model S304 analog tuner consists of a round analog frequency display dial, tuning knob, FM/AM switch to select bands (overseas model uses a different dial) and a signal indicator light tuned (green), FM stereo (red).

Trend DSP radio with analog Tuning - Extraordinary high sensibility, clear, transparent and warm sound.

The Silicon Labs DSP chip receiver chip brings reduced interference and superior signal reception, increased signal sensitivity and reduced signal drift for unmatched sound quality in an analog tuner. The model S304 analog tuner also uses a transformer and discrete regulators. A non-switching power supply are used to reduce  internal noise. A discrete buffer amplifier for line output is used for incredible, warm, clear, and rich sound.

High sensitive AM(MW) - Receive middle-wave weak signals with clear sound.

To increase AM(MW) band sensitivity, the ferrite bar antenna can be set on the receiver. This antenna holder is adjustable with magnets (installed at the base of the wooden supports)

Supports any FM/AM bands from all over the world!
