All products in the Heritage range utilise the same stylish chassis in brushed aluminium that can be obtained in two different finishes, silver or black.
The power on/off switch is located on the underside of the chassis towards the front of the left hand side. The CD transport controls are toggle switches. They are quirky and different and synonymous with YBA, and they are a great thing in this increasingly bland and homogenised world. And they are incredibly satisfying to use. Skipping a track can feel so much better being able to flick a spring-loaded switch up or down than press a button. The same is true whenever you want to pause then re-start play. Pressing the play pause button down to pause play, then down again to re-start, feels totally different and really satisfying.
On the rear panel you’ll find fully-differential balanced output via XLR sockets, plus unbalanced outputs via RCA terminals, a coaxial digital output (handy if you want to use the CD200 as a transport, with an external DAC), coaxial and optical digital inputs (so you could use the CD200 as a DAC with an external CD transport, or an older CD player) and a Type-B USB input, giving the CD200 a computer interface, so you can use it to play files stored on your computer, including DSD.
