Parasound Halo CD1
The Parasound CD 1 is the ultimate instrument for playing CDs and CD-Rs.

The CD 1 frees CDs from CD player technology that dates back to 1980. The result is a significant sonic improvement in CD playback.

CD drives read CD data only once and bit data is sent out at the same rate as the CD is read, 1:1. CD drives do not have the time, computing power or software to perform all of the calculations necessary to locate and correct bit read errors. To hide missing bits they can only estimate the value that the missing bits could be. When there are two or more bit errors a CD drive reverts to its “error concealment mode.” This sweeps bit errors under the carpet, creating distortion and when a CD drive struggles unsuccessfully to hide bit errors in the limited time available for its data processing you will hear a “click.” The “click” is rarely a flaw in the CD. Rather, it results from the technology limitations; even the most expensive CD players suffer from the same limitations.

The CD 1 does not suffer from these limitations because it uses a CD ROM drive instead of a CD drive. CD ROM drives are a newer and superior technology; with three levels of error calculation they are far better at reading CD data. The CD 1 uses its CD ROM drive in a unique way. The CD 1 CD ROM drive was selected for the lowest number of read errors. Its Intel computer runs Linux with Holm’s proprietary software. Without Windows® or superfluous software there won’t be any “blue screen of death” crashes.
