TEAC VRDS-701 CD Player


In stock

Free Delivery  ( West Malaysia Only )


The VRDS-701 CD player employs a newly-developed VRDS mechanism and a TEAC original discrete DAC.
The VRDS is a TEAC-original CD drive mechanism that reduces rotation vibration and other unwanted vibration
by clamping the CD to an aluminum turntable with the same diameter in order to maximize inertial mass.

Furthermore, instead of an ordinary DAC IC for the DAC section, which is crucial to audio quality,
the VRDS-701 has a TEAC ΔΣ (delta-sigma) discrete DAC that incorporates our unique algorithms in a discrete circuit.

Unconstrained by conventional CD player definitions, the VRDS-701 is enhanced with future-forward functionality.
The ability to play MQA CDs using full MQA decoding capabilities and support for 22.5MHz DSD and
384kHz/32-bit PCM formats as a USB DAC are some of the features that make it more than just a CD player.


Vibration-Free Rigid Disc-Clamping System (VRDS)

This TEAC-original CD drive mechanism reduces rotation vibration of the disc itself as well as unwanted mechanism vibration by clamping the CD to an aluminum turntable with the same diameter and maximizing inertial mass in order to stabilize rotation. Servo current is reduced with the turntable by correcting disc warping and distortion and improving the relative optical axis precision of the pickup and disc pit side. This realizes reduced disc reading errors and outstanding audio quality.

TEAC ɅƩ(delta-sigma) discrete DAC

Instead of an ordinary DAC IC, the DAC section, which is critical for determining the sound, is a TEAC ΔΣ (Delta Sigma) discrete DAC that consists of a discrete circuit structure that incorporates our unique algorithms using FPGA. DSD signals are left as is, while PCM signals are converted to either 1-bit or multi-bit signals, according to the end users choosing, using a ΔΣ modulator and then output as high-quality analog signals. The sound field that is wide and perfectly clear can be realized only because of this discrete design. The result is that we can say we have achieved the sound sought by TEAC. With a TEAC ΔΣ discrete DAC, playback of 22.5MHz DSD and 384kHz/32-bit PCM data is possible.

Dual mono structure

Using independent left and right toroidal core transformers, we have employed an indulgent dual mono structure for the circuitry from the power supply circuit through the D/A converter section to the analog output stage.
The dual mono structure has two sets of circuitry that provide complete mono paths for each channel. This prevents interference between the left and right signals and realizes rich musical expression that emphasizes perception of the sound space and three dimensionality.

Fully-balanced transmission at every stage

Fully-balanced transmission of the left and right analog output signals from D/A conversion to the final output stage contributes greatly to improving the signal-to-noise ratio and extending the dynamic range. The sense of air that high-resolution audio sources have can be transmitted without loss in an even purer state.

Inclusion of an MQA full decoder enables MQA CD playback

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) is a high-quality audio codec for playing music with the uncompromised quality of the master captured in the studio. The VRDS-701 includes an MQA decoder that controls waveforms converted from digital to analog at a precision as high as 5ms in order to achieve analog waveforms that are more faithful to the original sound sources. By greatly reducing “temporal blur,” which tends to occur at points when sound pressure differences are extreme, including when sounds begin suddenly, playback sound that is close to the original source in terms of human hearing can be achieved.
The inclusion of an MQA full-decoder not only enables enjoyment of MQA CDs, it also makes decoding of MQA data from the digital inputs possible, allowing playback of MQA files from a computer when used as a USB DAC.

As a USB DAC, 22.5MHz DSD andr 384kHz/32-bit PCM data can be played back

A USB Type-C port is available for digital input. The VRDS-701 is much more than a CD player. Connected to a computer with USB, it can be used as a USB DAC, enabling enjoyment of the computer audio world with high-resolution audio sources.

2×, 4× and 8× upconversion using RDOT-NEO

RDOT-NEO (Refined Digital Output Technology NEO), which smoothly augments digital audio signals, provides a function to upconvert the sampling frequency of PCM digital signals 2×, 4× or 8× (up to 384 kHz). RDOT, which applies an analogous interpolation method using fluency logic, is a technology that was developed to enable the playback of the frequencies higher than 20 kHz that are lost by the 44.1kHz/16-bit CD format. Based on the information read from the CD, analogous data is generated between the waveform samples. As a result, data above 20 kHz is also generated.

Headphone amp

The headphone amp has a dedicated driver that uses a high-output circuit with low distortion, high signal-to-noise ratio and a high 2000V/μs through rate, equivalent to a current transmission enhancing output line driver. This will maximize the potential of your headphones.

Bulk Pet USB communication technology enables stable data transmission

When sending vast quantities of digital data for high-resolution audio sources through USB cables, large discrepancies can occur in the processing loads of both the transmitting computer and the receiving USB DAC. This creates the possibility of the sound breaking up and other problems. Using Bulk Pet USB transmission technology, however, achieves constant transmission at a fixed data volume, enabling steady data transmission by smoothing the loads for processing on both ends. Since the audio quality can be altered by changing the load on the computer, four preset transmission modes can be chosen according to the desired audio quality.

Thorough design for vibration control

Power transformers, which tend to generate vibration, are mounted on a floating structure, separating and isolating them from the bottom panel. The side fins for heat dissipation have been tailored so that each one has a different length in order to eliminate sympathetic vibrations.

Three supporting pinpoint feet made of machined steel with a unique structure

The circuit board attachment screws have been kept to a minimum. Furthermore, steel pinpoint feet that use an original TEAC design with a new structure to provide a suitable amount of play in the connection between them and the bottom panel, are employed to thoroughly control vibrations that could affect audio quality.
