[#1] Bang & Olufsen CDX and CDX2    

I have been reading some discussions here with regards to the Philips TDA1540 and TDA1541 DAC Chips.

Needless to say these two chips are very old dating back to 1980's technology.

That said there are many people keep going back to the older CD players. Models like Philips CD100, 101, 104; Sony CDP-101, Studer A725 and Marantz CD 63. They may be old but not cheap.

I always love the Bang & Olufsen(B&O) designs and their products. I have long been wanting their Beogram CDX which was based on the Philips CD-104 mechanically though it is a completely B&O design.

Now, I finally managed to find not just the CDX, but also the CDX2!!

CDX would have used Philips 14Bit TDA1540P x2 while CDX2 would have Philips 16Bit TDA1541 x2.

What do they sound like? Well, why not put them together to have a comparison?

This is exactly what I am going to do.

First part would have some CDX played videos as I had it first.

Now, it's time to make a real time comparison between the CDX and CDX2.

It's going to use the same system(amp and speakers)so the performance is as close as you can get.

Your cdx no modify rca? original rca plug, and with the really thin cable? My one keep all original I bid from eBay U.K. 220v
After I listened cdx I buy 1more CD player inside 1541s1 crown, both chipset really make cd alive, you'll regret ever saying that CD sucked.

No modification on both.

Yes, still the original thin cable.

CDX2 does have the RCA sockets so you can connect with your cables.

At the moment the CDX still edges over the CDX2. No idea why? In order to run in I am just using the CDx2 mostly for now.

May be cdx original power plug ? kill hi end plug, most pro musician only use industrial level gear not Hong k0nger will spend like half million for a rca cable.
Tks for the video u make, in your footage the audio part very nice, your system very balance. Which microphone u use for recording this clips?

I hear audio note peter qvortrup saying 14bits & 16bits sounds horrible which I don’t agree.
Link for peter

The power plugs in both CDX and CDX2 are both ordinary 13amp plug you can buy from a DIY shop. I did have some old MK plug but I don't know if they make any difference. I think the power supply in your domain is more significant than just a plug. Most people in HK are living in apartment buildings and just imagine the complexity of the system! Moreover, the white products noise must be a serious issue.

I use a ZOOM H2N digital recorder and mostly using the "Mid-side" recording configuration and sometimes X-Y.

We shouldn't be surprised to hear that Peter Qvortrup is dismissing the old technology otherwise how can he manage to sell his new DAC's? Apart from the basic entry level DAC 0.1x(Philips TDA 1543) all the others are using 18Bits (AD1865).

Peter Qvortrup is a cunning businessman and he is only interested in making profit.
