When the Classé Design Team started the design of the new CD/DVD-1 player they asked potential buyers what they wanted, and needed, in a player that would be used for both two-channel and Multi-channel listening. Classé realized that a flawless picture from the DVD player was a must, but we also knew we needed to take into consideration the Audio CD output, something which is usually forgotten during the desgn of a DVD player .

Classé made it a mission to build a great addition to not only a customers' home theater, but also to their critical-listening sound systems. When you take home a Classé CD/DVD-1 you will discover that it gives a brighter, richer picture, more articulate dialog and impressive effects and real sonic imaging from your favorite DVD's. As a bonus, or perhaps more importantly, you will also realize that the CD/DVD-1 brings out more detail, more clarity, and more music from your CD collection.

If you put together a system with one or more of our amplifiers and one of our surround sound processors with the new CD/DVD-1, you will find that it can now be used as a CD and DVD transport. Since we know our customers want the very best quality, we have provided a coaxial and optical digital output, and also an AES/EBU digital output. The CD/DVD-1 comes complete; the player has Component Video and S-Video outputs. It is designed to play CD's, HDCD's, CD-R's, CD-RW's, Video CD's, and DVD's. We've even added volume and mute controls for the Classé Surround Processors to the remote so you don't have to search around for another remote when you're watching a movie.

The new Classé CD/DVD player is designed to be both an upgrade and a replacement for the acclaimed CDP-1.5 player. We have upgraded the CD/DVD-1 mechanical mechanism with a brand new model from Philips, and also upgraded all of the DACs for CD playback. The Video output is unmatched. The new CD/DVD-1 is all Classé. You owe it to your ears and eyes to give it a listen, to give it a look.
