Ever felt awful when you couldn’t play your CDs because they are old, battered, or scratched? We know that the new wave of iPods and MP3 players make CDs completely unnecessary, but what about the old-school ones you used to listen to before you had your latest iPod? What if your car’s CD player (which also plays data CDs) wasn’t getting the amount of use it could because of all of the scratched up music you had lying around? Well, here’s a solution-a CD player that not only restores music from your CD’s, but also fixes any errors! The 808.3 Signature Reference CD Player comes with several audio input options such as analogue, digital, and a new balanced digital audio SpeakerLink input, along with volume control. It also features an ID40 Sooloos Card to connect it directly to a network similar to a Meridian Sooloos Digital Media System that will render the audio streamed across the network. The 808.3 has the proprietary DSP based ‘apodising’ up-sampling system from Meridian. Its set of twin SpeakerLink outputs helps you connect left and right DSP Loudspeakers directly to the 808.3, making the wiring structure and cables easy to hide. It will be available in three colors-black, silver, and graphite, aside from the many color options of the Meridian Select. So how much? The player is priced at around $19,995.
