The ERC-3 is a high-performance audio CD player and transport. The ERC-3’s heavy duty CD drive mechanism and powerful LASER mechanism enable it to play virtually any Red Book audio CD with ease. The superb quality internal DACs deliver true audiophile quality audio performance, while the flexible digital output options enable you to use the ERC-3 as a high-performance digital transport with your favorite external DAC or and preamp or processor that has digital audio inputs.
Even in today’s download age, most of your best music is still on CDs. You probably have hundreds, if not thousands of them. But finding a player that can treat them right and bring out their best can be difficult, especially if you don’t want to spend thousands… until now. The all-new Emotiva ERC-3 sets a new standard for exceptional compact disc playback, at a price that will leave you breathless.
Everything about the ERC-3 was designed to extract the best possible performance from your discs. Pick it up and feel the rock solid 21-pound chassis. Strategically placed steel dampers add additional mass loading, reducing vibration and resonance to negligible levels. Feel the smooth action of the high-reliability tray loading mechanism. We spared no detail in creating a tough, precise, and gentle playback platform for your treasured discs.
The legendary Analog Devices AD1955 Multi-Segment Delta-Sigma DAC’s joined to our all new Differential Reference™ analog circuitry deliver class-leading audio performance, whether you’re looking at the numbers or listening to the end result. You don’t need an external DAC for a nuanced, engaging, and resolving musical presentation with the ERC-3—just connect the balanced or unbalanced analog outputs and get ready to hear what you have been missing.
