coaxial digital output The coaxial digital output provides a digital audio signal via a 75Ω coaxial
cable equipped with RCA-type connectors. Connect this output to a
corresponding coaxial digital input on your preampliﬁer/processor.
AES/EBU digital output The AES/EBU output provides a digital audio signal via a 110Ω balanced
cable equipped with XLR-type connectors. Connect this output to a
corresponding AES/EBU digital input on your preampliﬁer/processor.
optical digital output The optical digital output provides a digital audio signal via a standard
EIAJ (“Toslink™”) optical cable. Connect this output to a corresponding
optical digital input on your preampliﬁer/processor.
Making any one of these connections allows you to feed the signal in its
digital form directly to your A/V preampliﬁer for further digital processing.
4 IR Input and Output
Your Classé player includes two
-inch mono mini-jacks in order to
support the infrared (IR) remote controls that are ubiquitous today.
Infrared commands exist (for example) for toggling the player between
and standby, in addition to discrete command codes for either
or standby. These codes may be used in “macros” for sophisticated
remote control systems, facilitating the control of the player in the larger
context of a complete system.
The list of commands available is quite extensive, enabling even complex
macros (chains of commands strung together) to operate ﬂawlessly. If this
capability is of interest to you, we strongly recommend discussing it with
your authorized Classé dealer.
Note that IR Input and Output
is a bit of a misnomer: the input and
output of these plugs is electrical in nature, not infrared. They are used
with standard IR receivers, distribution ampliﬁers, and emitters (available
from your dealer) to translate the remote’s IR signal to an electrical signal
and vice versa. The big advantages here include being able to easily route
the signals anywhere they might need to go and the reliability of a solid
Since an IR distribution system such as your dealer may design for you
usually must control many products, your player includes both an IR input
(for the control of this product) and an IR output (so as to pass along the
same signal to the next product). This allows you to “daisy chain” your
control wires from one product to the next.
