Harmon Kardon HD970:inside view
The overall view.Note that compare to earlier production,this one use a
"two-part" ATAPI drive as opposite to South Korea's DVS drive.

The R-core transformer with 3 separate windings:2 for analog stages and 1 for the others.

Sanyo's SF-HD65 laser pick-up unit,which can be found inside many cheap DVD players.

The ATAPI board,which almost equivalent to a normal DVDROM without:
-Master/Slave/Cable Select jumper setting,
-Analog Audio Output,
-Digital Audio Output.

This one use a VOS chipset rather than the popular MTK chipset.

The 'heart' of the machine:Analog Devices' Blackfin audio DSP.Note that
the adjacent Xilinx's FPGA.

The SPDIF IN/OUT and DAC section.This CDP comes with digital inputs and putputs both on coaxial and optical,with AKM's AK4117 serves as input receiver and a AKM4103 as transmitter.

The DAC section employs a AD1955.

The analog stages:OP275s as I/V converters and OPA2134s as low-pass filter/DC servo.Diamond buffers are also found at the final output stages.

Leolabs 21st July 2007 02:01 AM

Power supply section:Standard adjustable linear regulators for the analog stages,low-dropout for the digital circuits and switching regulators for the ATAPI drive.
