The truth lies in the music. Our passion for this truth that is inherent in everything sends us music lovers further and further through the jungle of possibilities to find equipment with which we can preserve the truth of music. Some voices say that truth is something that emanates from the viewer. This interprets and modifies it. The origin of the music is laid out in the signal and with the subbase concept we succeed in keeping interpretations – errors in the system – largely out of the reproduction. But which electronics is able to make this possible? There are components worldwide that are very special. One that belongs to the absolute top, is now offered by us expanding.
CH Precision has managed to climb to the summit of ultra-high-end Olympus in a relatively short period of time, without the usual tight advertising spending. We have dealt with this Swiss precision in terms of music.
In our experience, these electronics do everything right. In combination with Kroma Audio’s loudspeakers, we have found a partner in CH Precision that reveals to us the richness of each music recording. We spare ourselves the all-present and tired superlatives of the sound description. For CH Precision, terms such as dynamics, transparency, plasticity, spatial representation and Co. are not a yardstick, all this is presented to the highest degree. What is also much more present is the purity of the tonal differentiation of the timbres, i.e. the instrument signature. As a result, each recording sounds particularly natural, depending on the instruments used, the recording technique in general. The tonal preference of the label and of course the manufacturing quality of the source are the factors that divide a very good from a mediocre reproduction quality. Everything becomes a perfect symphony and a grand piano shines like a whole orchestra. Why should we settle for less?
With us you not only get these wonderful music machines, we offer you the service, our know-how and products with which you can realize the best working environment for your components. Another argument for CH Presicion is the update capability. You purchase a high-quality high-end device from CH Precision and after maybe 10 years a further development comes onto the market. All you have to do is send us your beloved device, perhaps a C1 DAC. We take care of the onward transport to the manufacturer. There, the device is converted to the current version and only at the difference price to the new device.
CH Precision A1.5 | mono/stereo power amplifier
The power amplifier A1.5 is already a stereo version a guarantee for a highly musically open performance, but can also be used as a mono power amplifier. It effortlessly provides 150 watts at 8 ohms. He shakes any kind of energy effortlessly out of his sleeve. There is absolute control in the entire frequency spectrum and thus opens up the view of the recording situation.
The signal processing takes place in the input in Class A and in the output in A/B, which has great advantages in terms of sound. All control and regulation processes in the power amplifier are monitored and controlled by a digital brain. The future security of this power amplifier lies in its uncompromising design, in which emphasis is also placed on the sound effects of the components, and the purely analog signal processing. But through subsequent firmware updates, it is possible to optimize the digital processes, which not only affects the usability of the display, but also the sound, e.B. because the noise is audibly reduced. But that’s not all, this power amplifier has the possibility to be gradually adapted to the connected speakers with an integrated feedback! A very useful feature in terms of sound.
Another highlight are the already installed grounding connections for the chassis, digital section and signal ground, which allows it to be connected to our
. Like any CH Precision device, the A1.5 can be inserted into the network via Lan cable and configured and controlled. However, all functions are also available via the front panel.
Incidentally, the functions of the digital brains and the associated possibilities and advantages are inherent in every CH Precision device. As well as the grounding connections and the operability via Lan network.
CH Precision C1.2 DAC (UPDATE from C1 to C1.2 available from November 2022)
The CH Precision C1.2 DAC is described by many as one of the best DACs on the market. We have dealt very intensively with this device and can certainly confirm these statements. He brings a wonderfully natural analog flow into the music, shows recording rooms large – e.B. concert halls – and also small – e.B. intimate jazz cellars – as they are probably designed. In classical concert recordings, every seat is occupied and solos never get lost in the crowd. The energy in the music varies depending on the playing style and warmth, as well as clarity in the recordings is presented in such a way that you feel effortless and believable. Its future security also lies in the possibility of firmware updates but also in its expandability. It can be supplemented with the in-house power supply X1, which can supply up to two devices with the most stable power. For an additional stroke accuracy and thus spatial stability, the T1 10MHz clock is available. These are options with which the sound quality can be taken to another level.
However, the C1.2 DAC also has a few features as the sole DAC that make it an inexpensive all-rounder with fantastic quality. It must be equipped with an additional analog input. So it is optionally possible a (e.B.) Connect the phono stage without having to use another preamplifier. And because it is then necessary, the C1.2 has a digital volume control that works really well. Who thinks that’s it. The C1.2 can also be equipped with a streaming unit. Furthermore, the C1.2 can be synchronized with the CD/SACD drive D1.5, via the Clcok board.
CH Precision D1.5 CD/SACD-Transport/Player
With the CD/SACD drive, CH Precsion has probably developed the best drive on the world market. Like all other devices from the Swiss manufacturer, the D1.5 has a modular design and can be expanded up to a CD player (with analogue output stage). The drive synchronizes with the connected C1.2 DAC or can be clocked via T1 clock from the same company, or a reference clock (10MHz) from Mutech to increase accuracy. The supply with the external power supply X1 is also possible here. We will not list the technical tidbits here, please read the review attached below. This contains all data on the production of the device. It should be noted that the D 1.5 can do everything that can be experienced with the CD today and in the future. Whether MQA or glass CDs, the topic of silver is far from over.
Is it still worthwhile today, in times of streaming, to buy a CD drive in such a price range? A very clear YES from our side if you want to invest the money. If you were allowed to enjoy the D1.5 for some time, you will get a real “headache” when trying to get back into streaming. The level of calmness, commitment and authenticity is breathtaking. What happens here with the music cannot be explained with the usual descriptions, we tried and failed. The music is so real in its depiction and emotionally poignant in its creation that it can be described with two film titles: “A river springs from the middle” and “The infinite lightness of being”
While the Musk’s representation here is 100% perfect, it does not define the performance of this device. The inner coherence of the tones creates a clarity in the musical understanding that one is out when one tries to describe reality /reproduction . An absolute dream machine!
CH Precision X1 | Ext. Power supply
For an extra upgrade to the already fantastic components, there’s the X1 external power supply. The X1 can help up to two CH Precision components – e.g. C1.2 and D1.5 – to achieve sonic flyovers with the perfect supply voltage. In the X1, everything is completely discrete. The components have a separate connector for the X1, which means that the required DC voltages are supplied directly to the individual circuits. The internal power supply of the respective component is only responsible for the control. A clear advantage here is that two devices that exchange data with each other are supplied with an equivalent power supply. In this way, the resulting potential disturbances are kept extremely low. The difference between including an X1 or not is not a small one… No, it’s actually quite large. The sound image gains in size and the instruments become heavier, becoming more massive.
We will not leave you out in the rain after purchasing this exceptional electronics. We offer you our know-how and our subbase creations to generate the maximum performance from the components. CH Precision Elektronik reacts very positively to a
