The CD1.1x is the first full width CD player within the Audio Note range. The extra space inside over the smaller CD Zero featured elsewhere gives room for a second transformer to help keep the digital and analogue stages separated, as well as Audio Notes own tin in oil output coupling capacitors (the two silver cans visible in the picture below). There are more sophisticated power supplies and improved component quality too. These changes primarily bring upgrades to refinement and tonality, even further reducing the ‘mechanical’ sound that digital sources invariably impart to a degree. The classic combination of a multi bit DAC (in this case the TDA1543) used without oversampling and filters running into a triode valve output stage (the remarkable sub miniature 6111WA dual triode) has such a sense of rightness that you will wonder how you ever enjoying CDs any other way.
