JungSon makes another Impression
JungSon has put all its cutting-edge solid-state and valve audio technologies and experience into its new Impression II top-loading, hybrid (solid-state/valve) CD player. The Impression II uses two PCM1794 and ten OPA604 chips as the D/C and I/C converters as part of a fully-balanced two-channel signal path and can up-sample CD signal formats from 44.1k/16-bit to192k/24-bit, with users being able to select one of three sampling rates (44.1kHz, 96kHz and 194 kHz) to suit their music tastes.
To ensure the purest sound quality, the Impression II’s circuit boards and power supplies are located in five completely isolated aluminium alloy chambers, which completely eliminates electronic interference. The solid aluminium alloy body has a triple chromed stainless steel top panel which serves two functions. First, and most importantly, it effectively reduces vibration. Second, it ensures the appearance of the Impression II is as elegant as its sound quality.
There are two completely separate valve output stages inside the new JungSon Impression II CDP as well as two independent solid-state outputs. One of the valve stages drives one of the three line outputs fitted to the Impression II; the other valve output stage is provided to drive whatever pair of headphones you’d like to plug into the JungSon’s headphone output. The two solid-state outputs are unbalanced (RCA) and balanced (XLR) analogue line outputs. There are also three digital outputs: Optical, Coaxial and AES/EBU.
The Impression II retains JungSon’s traditionally elite prestige, uncompromised craftsmanship, romantic characteristics and superior sound quality.
