Goldmund Eidos Reference Blue – Player

 

Goldmund Eidos Reference Blue.

Dal 1978 la Goldmund, con sede a Ginevra in Svizzera, offre agli audiofili oggetti di altissimo livello qualitativo e dall’indiscutibile fascino. Gran parte dei prodotti Goldmund sono in serie limitata e questo CD Player Eidos Reference Blue non fa eccezione, dal momento che è stato realizzato in soli 50 esemplari.
Ognuno di essi è costruito a mano, mentre il modello base Eidos Reference uscito nel 2007 è aggiornabile al prestigioso modello Blu con la modica spesa di 50.000 euro.
Parlare delle caratteristiche soniche di prodotti come questo non ha molto senso. Qui siamo nell’ambito degli oggetti da collezione e dal prestigio assoluto. La leggenda di questi prodotti è iniziata nel 1982 con il celeberrimo giradischi Goldmund Reference. Naturalmente la qualità sonica generale è allo stato dell’arte.

Il materiale

con cui è realizzato l’Eidos Reference Blu è un insieme di ottone e alluminio con un peso di 30 Kg poggiato su quattro sospensioni a molla denominato “Magnetic Damping”. In questo modo le vibrazioni non sono in grado di passare al piano sottostante di appoggio del Player, ma rimangono imprigionate e poi annullate dal lettore stesso.

L’alimentazione stabilizzata con un particolare circuito AC assicura eccellenza nelle prestazioni.
Il prezzo di questa scultura suonante è fissato in 128.000 euro.

Le considerazioni

A questo punto sorgono spontanee delle considerazioni sulla effettiva opportunità di spendere una cifra del genere per un oggetto la cui tecnologia risulta oggi obsoleta. Come sappiamo i CD stanno andando definitivamente in disuso, superati dalla più performante, oltre che pratica, tecnologia dei file audio. Grazie ad essi è oggi possibile usufruire di tanta, tantissima musica stoccata in un semplice HD e facilmente raggiungibile dell’audiofilo senza alzarsi dalla sua postazione d’ascolto. Inoltre la qualità dei file audio, a parità di risoluzione (44.1 KHz) è decisamente superiore a quella di qualunque lettore CD, a patto che l’Audio File Player sia di ottima qualità.

Un eccellente lettore di file costa oggi solo una frazione del prezzo richiesto per il CDP Goldmund Blue.
In ogni caso questo lettore, per i nostalgici del supporto fisico digitale, rimane un vero oggetto del desiderio.

The Goldmund Reference line offers mythical products that have become collectors’ items of extreme rarity and value. The legend started with the Goldmund Reference turntable in 1982 and then, in the digital domain, with the Goldmund Eidos Reference CD and DVD player in 2007.
Today, Goldmund presents the Eidos Reference Blue, a version providing the playback of BluRay discs in addition to the DVD and CD playback of extreme quality already present in its famous predecessor. Designed on a similar base as the Eidos Reference, this player is available as a limited series of 50 units, all hand-built, at the Goldmund Geneva factory.

There is a reason why the Eidos Reference Blue pushes technology above any existing levels. It is because our specialists made absolutely no compromise between the quality and refinement of the finish, the exceptional mechanical construction and the cost. The Eidos Reference brings all the attributes of a phenomenal sonic masterpiece. Its mechanical grounding construction is enhanced by a sturdier table support. Heavily damped brass and aluminum mechanism enclosure (30kg) suspended on 4 spring-loaded suspension pods have been added to its structure to cancel negative effects of vibrations. Its external aluminum transport rigidifying structure cancels spurious vibrations.

 The built

The built-in stabilized power supply uses the Goldmund AC-Curator circuitry. It is totally separated from the mechanism by the top of the table support. The Eidos Reference Blue also includes the Goldmund “Magnetic Damping” technology that considerably improves the image stability and sound transparency.
In a spirit of continuity, and to satisfy the demand of our most faithful customers, our Eidos Reference Blue has been designed to allow an easy upgrade from the Eidos Reference.
The Eidos Reference Blue is multi-zone. Compatibility information is available in the Technical Specifications tab of this page.

Goldmund Eidos Reference Blue

Goldmund says its new Eidos Reference Blue Blu-ray player will be limited to a production run of just 50 players, all of which will be hand-built in Goldmund’s factory in Geneva, Switzerland. However, the company is offering to upgrade any Eidos Reference player to the Reference Blue standard, which is possible because the new player is based on the original Eidos Reference, which played only CD and DVD formats. ‘The Goldmund Reference line offers mythical products that have become collectors’ items of extreme rarity and value,’ says Chris Strom….See more
