About This Listing

Accuphase DP-80 & DC-81:
A phenomenal CD player and DAC combo for digital audiophiles!

The Accuphase DP-80, released in 1985 during the “Golden Era” of Japanese high-fidelity audio equipment, is an audiophile-targeting high-fidelity CD player that features Accuphase’s proprietary high-performance technology. This is a pure-digital CD player, meaning that the output is a digital signal delivered via optical fiber. Unlike many other CD players, this modular concept allows you to use your own DAC for audio reproduction, a huge bonus for many audiophiles with particular D/A needs and tastes. However, it was designed to be used with the DC-81 DAC in particular, which is included in this sale (information below). The DP-80 features a single master clock timing system for all of its components, which reduces any timing-originated beating from occurring, subsequently enhancing overall signal and audio quality. Overall vibrations are highly attenuated by both the rugged chassis construction and a floating-disc-table design which isolates the CD itself. All of these factors bring to the table a fantastic device with the highest possible quality in playback of audio from CDs. Like other Accuphase equipment, the DP-80 is gorgeous in appearance, with an emphasis on luxury.

The Accuphase DC-81, released in 1986 during the “Golden Era” of Japanese high-fidelity audio equipment, is an audiophile-targeting high-fidelity DAC featuring Accuphase’s proprietary high-performance technology. It was designed to be paired with the Accuphase DP-80 CD player. The DAC is a current addition type which can achieve the 16-bit theoretical limit by discrete configuration. The digital filters are L/R independent and 2x oversampling, with 121st-order composition. The low-pass filter is a discrete GIC-type 9th-order Butterworth active filter. In this unit, each bit signal of the digital filter output is optically transmitted (by a total of 34 transmitters, 7Mbit / sec) in the L&R channels and converted into an electric signal for the D/A conversion. As a result, there is complete electrical separation which eliminates noise and interference via conductors. The DC-81 features XLR balanced outs as well as two RCA outs (fixed and variable). It's the perfect match for the DP-80!

These units are in very good condition, with minor signs of use and aging, including some scratches and coloration (please see photos). These units work perfectly and have been thoroughly checked and tested by our professional technician, confirming their flawless operation. The sound quality is superb, as expected.
