"This is a very impressive two-box CD player, with lovely timing and dynamic expression plus a sweet and delicate presentation. Add in exceptional DAC input flexibility, a sensible remote handset and costeffective construction at prices well below today's high end norm, and as a result deserves my confident recommendation."

"Since the company was founded almost sixty years ago, the Japanese manufacturer CEC has repeatedly made people sit up and listen with its innovations. The ingenious belt drive in its CD drives has now long been standard; the latest generation continues to provide good service in the form of the TL3N. The DA3N D/A converter which has now come out is the ideal partner for the TL3N and scores, among other things, by using the latest D/A chip whose use has so far been limited purely to the professional field.
You get sound reproduction quality at its finest. The calm, supreme composure and confidence with which the TL3N and DA3N produce music together recall the playback by an analogue mass-loaded turntable. Great job!"

"What is definitely true is that CEC is back, and back with drums, trumpets and lots of new devices…
CEC combines the best drive system, an excellent transfer concept and precise signal processing to create a CD drive/converter package with superior sound quality which shows the capacity of the CD in a very impressive manner"
The DA 3N works perfectly with 5 kinds of digital sources.
AES/EBU, COAX., TOSLINK and USB in addition to CEC original SUPERLINK. For SUPERLINK the BNC 4-cables connection (for TL 1N, TL 3N..) is available in addition to the traditional D-sub 9 pin connection. (fot TL 1X, TL 2X, TL 51..)
Inside the CEC DA 3N we use the new ESS Hyperstream
ES9008 DAC chip (the world's first 8-channel audio DAC that opens up real professional digital audio), which performs up to 24bit/192kHz music signal and assures the highest level of sound quality.
The digital filter is switchable between standard FLAT and ringing-free PULSE.
Balanced circuit design achieves the high quality signal path keeping the sound quality very natural and clear.
Full balanced analog stages with various outputs: 2x Balanced XLR (fixed and variable), 2x unbalanced RCA (fixed and variable) 1x 6.3mm headphone. The analog outputs offer connection with amplifier via the fixed RCA or XLR outputs. The variable outputs can be controlled by the volume control on the front and also by remote contol as
well as the headphone output.
