NuPrime CDP-9


CD Player and DAC ideally suited for power amps and active speakers

The NuPrime CDP-9 is a highly accurate CD player with an integrated high-end DAC and preamp. A powerful DSP-based decoder that provides all Red Book error-correction capabilities with master-clock control of the entire decoding system, thus lowering jitter significantly. The transport’s single speed minimizes vibration and unbalanced discs. The high-performance DAC, together with a selectable sampling rate converter for the digital output (up to 32bit/768kHz and DSD512) converts the CD format to either SPDIF at highest sampling rate or DSD format up to DSD512.

SKU: NP-CDP-9 Category:


The CDP-9 takes all of CDT-8 Pro capabilities and adds a High-End DAC (ESS9028), a preamp and a headphone amp which makes it the complete digital frontend. Furthermore, the Sampling Rate Converter is enabled on all digital inputs. This allows the DAC to be fed with more bits of information which could optimize the Digital to Analog Conversion on any digital source.


  • A powerful ARM chip LPC2103F CD reads, writes and controls error correction
  • Philips SAA7824HL high-end laser reads/writes head control and decodes chips
  • Supports CD-DA, CD-R, CD-RW
  • Algorithm reduces digital interference and jitter
  • •The sampling rate of any digital inputs, including CD playback, can be converted up or down between PCM and DSD, from 44.1kHz to 768kHz  or DSD64 to DSD512
  • The conversion is achieved by up-sampling to mega hertz before down converting to the targeted sampling rate with ultra-low jitter and distortion
  • Volume adjustment in 99 precise, 0.5dB increments, which also memorizes the setting for each input for precise level matching of all sources
  • Advanced, FPGA implemented thin-film switched-resistor ladder network for controlling volume, with a single resistor in the signal path at any volume setting
  • High performance op-amp headphone amp
  • USB Asynchronous transfer mode with driver software provided for Windows (driver not required for Mac OS and Linux)
  • Very low power consumption on Standby Mode
  • Includes remote control
