Goldmund introduced today the company's first high-end Blu-ray player, the Eidos 20 BD, priced at $16,900.
Swiss-based Goldmund is well known among the ultra-luxury audiophiles worldwide. According ot the company, their first high-end Blu-ray player
includes the "AC-Curator" power supply circuit which improves picture and sound stability and dynamics, and the "Mechanical Grounding" construction which removes from the player mechanism spurious vibrations blurring the video signal and increasing jitter. In addition, the new Eidos 20 BD uses the Goldmund "Magnetic Damper," a device lowering the reading errors, a feature that previously was exclusive to Goldmund's highest end devices.
"As a result of last week's news in regards to the format wars, Goldmund decided to launch the Eidos 20 BD earlier than we had originally planned to capture the attention of the industry that believes in the superior technological merits of the Blu-ray format," said Michel Reverchon, president of Goldmund. "The Blu-ray player is the perfect addition to our Goldmund Media Room, which requires high-definition playback and is the pinnacle of technological excellence."
Goldmund's Eidos 20 DB is priced at $16,900.
