Full Product Overview & Specification
The Fulcrum TX24 CD transport is supplied at 44.1 kHz
up-sampled 24 bit output and is upgradeable to enable
the TX4000 engine to be fitted, utilizing the existing
drive and chassis.
The Fulcrum TX24 CD drive has been designed to offer very
low jitter and high quality error correction. It utilizes a Sony
KSS212B optical block ensuring optimum performance and
reliability. Within the CD architecture there are two types of
error correction. C1 errors which are corrected without loss
of information known as loss-less data recovery and C2 errors
which uses the DSP chips in the drive to interpolate or guess
and reconstruct the data which is missing by looking at the
proceeding and advancing data and creating an average
value. As this data is approximated it is theoretically audible,
the Fulcrum TX24 CD drive utilizes very stable power supplies
and accurate clocking minimizing data loss.
The TX24 features CD TEXT which shows the album title
and track title whilst the disc is inserted. (CDs must support
CD Text for this feature to work) The Fulcrum TX24 uses a
Vacuum Fluorescent Display which may be switched off for
The TX24 incorporates a single FPGA which enables
the increased word length and master clock reference.
Independent power supplies for all stages are fed
by the internal mains filter network.
The Transport also offers an optical Clock Lock Input which
may be used together with the Fulcrum DAC64 allowing the
whole digital replay system to be locked with a single clock,
thus minimizing jitter.
With an SPDIF, AES/EBU and optical outputs this Transport
is very versatile and may used with a wide variety of
The Fulcrum CD Drive is supplied with a universal remote
handset offering 21 programmable tracks and 15 CD functions,
and can also control 7 functions on our remote control amplifiers.
