Arcam FMJ CD23 CD player Measurements page 3
Fig.8 Arcam FMJ CD23, high-resolution jitter spectrum of analog output signal (11.025kHz at -6dBFS with LSB toggled at 229Hz). Center frequency of trace, 11.025kHz; frequency range, ±0.5kHz.
Other than the very slightly high level of the noise floor, this is state-of-the-art measured performance for a CD player. Like LB, I wonder why Arcam didn't incorporate a digital data input to allow the CD23's superb DAC to be used to decode other data sources.—John Atkinson
