6-Disc CD Carousel: The Integra CDC-3.4 is a CD changer with a 6-disc
carousel. You can load up to 5 discs while one is still playing for extended
listening times without interruption. Once the drawer is open, 2 CDs can be
changed, then you must use the Disc Skip button to change out the remaining
three. It features smooth & quiet mechanical operation, plus a soft blue light
which illuminates the disc tray for better visibility.
Disc Compatibility: The Integra CDC-3.4 supports playback of Audio
CDs, as well as CD-R and CD-RW discs with MP3 audio files. MP3 discs must be ISO
9660 Level 1 or Level 2, Romeo or Joliet compliant. MP3 files must have a
sampling rate of 8kHz-48kHz and a bit-rate of 8kbps-320 kbps (128kbps
recommended). The CD changer can recognize up to 499 MP3 files and up to 99
folders per disc.
192kHz/24-Bit DACS: The Integra CDC-3.4 utilizes a two Wolfson
192kHz/24-Bit DACs and 128-times oversampling for excellent sound quality
reproduction from the digital to analog domain.
Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC): Conventional analog filters
reduce digital noise at the D/A conversion stage, and then the VLSC uses a
"Vector Generator" to output a smooth and noiseless analog signal. This results
in a dramatically improved sound quality for all types of music signals.
Direct Digital Path: Direct Digital Path signal routing
provides a shorter, cleaner path from the signal processing PC board to the
digital outputs than typically found on other players. This direct signal path
routing is used to prevent corruption of the signal by noise from the ICs and
Stereo Analog Output: The 6-disc CD player is outfitted with a stereo
analog RCA output for connecting to your stereo receiver or integrated
amplifier. The stereo RCA jacks are gold-plated for excellent signal transfer.
Optical & Coaxial Digital Outputs: The Integra CDC-3.4 is equipped
with two digital outputs. There is one optical (toslink) and one coaxial (RCA)
digital output. Both digital output support audio sampling rates of 32kHz,
44.1kHz, and 48kHz.
LCD Screen: The Integra CDC-3.4 features a front-panel LCD screen
which can display remaining track and disc time, disc and track name, and
various ID3 tags for MP3 tracks (such as artist name and song title). The unit's
display brightness can be adjusted to Normal, Dim, or Dimmer.
Front-Panel & Remote Controls: There are 19 push-buttons
on the front-panel of the CD changer. Front-panel controls include Standby/On,
Open/Close, Disc Skip, Disc Select (1-6), Play/Pause, Stop, Previous/Next Track
or Folder, Fast Forward/Rewind Track, Repeat/Random, and more. The CD changer also comes with a
34-button IR remote control that will control all of the functions of the
front-panel, as well as other advanced functions like direct
track access via the remotes numeric keypad.
IR Input/Output: The IR input (3.5mm) can be used to connect an
optional IR receiver (sold separately), which can be used to pickup IR signals
from the remote controller when the CDC-3.4 is located in another room,
installed in a rack, or is out of range of the remote controller. The IR output
(3.5mm) can be used to connect an IR emitter (sold separately), which can be
used to pass remote controller IR signals received by the IR input along to
other AV components.
RI Input/Output: RI remote control input and output 3.5mm
jacks allow you to transmit remote codes between compatible Integra components.
RS-232 Port: The RS-232 port is used to connect the CD changer to an
external 3rd party controller (sold separately).
