The Unison Research Unico CD Uno is a high-specification DAC with an integrated CD mechanism that is flexible and customizable. The CD Uno combines Unison Research’s high-end sound quality with the broad playback possibilities offered by today’s digital audio solutions. The CD Uno will allow you to playback all the music formats and sampling rates currently available on the market.
The UnicoCDUno boasts a wide variety of inputs and outputs. On the back panel there are inputs for USB and Toslink TM cables, and built inside the housing is a BluetoothTM receiver that allows for wireless streaming from compatible devices.
The audio stage uses one 12AU7//ECC82 double triode, operating in pure class A, followed by a solid-state discrete buffer still operating in class A for a low impedance output and ideal audio behaviour. Aesthetically the CD Uno, like the CD Due, differs from existing Unico products with its new three-fold faceplate, white LEDs and white display. This same aesthetic will pass over to the new Unico 90 and Unico 150 amplifiers, which are designed to be perfect matches for the CD Uno and CD Due.
