Holfi Xara CD Player 
A multibit integrated CD-player

The HOLFI Xara is a multibit integrated CD-player containing a non-feedback, Class A, single-ended analog amplifier.

The Xara contains five separate power supplies to ensure lowest possible interference between the different digital and analog sections. More than 18000 uF filtering capacity combined with the best component quality available provides the proper filtering necessary for taking care of digital noise and reducing jitter.

The single-ended non-feedback Class A analog amplifier is based on current amplification to handle the output current signal from the D/A converter with as little distortion as ever possible. Actually the analog music signal passes only two transistors before leaving the Xara with 1.25 Volts RMS output level!

All parts of the Xara are mounted on a highly stable steel chassis. Furthermore the chassis is mechanically damped by using heavy bitumen plates. For electrically damping carbon foam plates are placed inside the cabinet taking care of high frequency digital noise.
