The Fusion 21 is designed to compliment both the A21 and A21SE Signature integrated amplifiers. Utilising a high speed transport mechanism and on board memory, the Fusion 21 is a technically advanced CD player. To reduce jitter and control errors during play back there is a dedicated transceiver circuit, this re-formats data prior to the digital to analogue converter.
A unique conversion method is employed without oversampling or filtering in the digital domain, instead we chose an analogue filter allowing a very wide bandwidth.
Important as technology is in the digital domain, the potential can only be realised if the analogue output is capable of producing a high quality sound. The use of a class A output stage and trans-impedance amplifier ensures superb sound. A useful additional feature of the Fusion 21 is a digital input. This allows the connection of an eternal source like a music streamer or AV component.
