Audionet Planck2

Pre net – German firm Audionet have been around before there was a worldwide net. So have CD players. It's only fitting then that Audionet's new Planck² [€14'490] and Art G5 [€8'490] would honor the format at an uncompromised level. The 23kg flagship top loader integrates a slate plinth for premium resonance control, runs a class A output stage and can process external sources via USB-B, coax and Toslink. Similarly the CD signal can output externally via 3 x S/PDIF and AES/EBU. Analog out runs on XLR or RCA. The smaller machine shown combines MDF, aluminium and granite with the Philips VAU 1254/31LF transport and a DC-coupled signal path.
