Anyone who says the era of the CD Player is a thing of the past has probably not taken into account the vast collections of music owned in this format by millions upon millions of people!
YBA will continue to produce players of the highest quality and the Heritage CD100 is indicative of the company’s dedication. However loading CDs has moved away from the old traditional open/close drawer format.
As you can see from the photograph, you load discs into the Heritage CD100 simply by pushing them into the thin slot on the front panel immediately alongside the display. This provides for a tastefully minimalist CD player design where the only features on the front panel apart from the signature YBA display window are the control switches, including one to increase the sampling rate.
Having both analog and balanced outputs together with digital input and output capabilities, the CD100 is a CD player for today.
There’s no doubt that the YBA Heritage player delivers superior CD performance… so superior that it’s easily the sonic equal of players costing many times its exceptionally competitive price.
