Yamaha CD-C603 audio CD player, five discs or nothing

The audio CD is not dead, and Yamaha continues to celebrate it with its latest CD player capable of handling five discs simultaneously, the Yamaha CD-C603.

The new Yamaha CD-C603 audio CD player with an optical block with floating mechanism accommodates up to five discs simultaneously, so you can listen to your music continuously without changing the discs. However, the PlayXChange function allows you to change four of the five discs while playback continues, for uninterrupted listening.

Yamaha CD-C603 with Pure Direct mode

Note the presence of Pure Direct mode. Like amplifiers and receivers, the latter cuts the digital audio output and turns off the front screen, in order to enjoy ideal listening quality through the analog output while avoiding sound interference. Please note, in addition to audio CD playback, playback of MP3, WMA, AAC, Wav and Flac music files (up to 96 kHz/24 bits for the last two mentioned) stored on a key or hard drive via a port USB accessible on the front.

Available in black or silver. Indicative price: 599 euros.
