"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler." -- Albert Einstein
While Albert Einstein may not have been an audiophile, he did have a pretty good head on his shoulders. So when it came time for EMM Labs to create a statement digital product, it seemed only logical to keep Einstein’s statement in mind.
Our goal, after all, was nothing less than a quantum leap in performance. And that’s just what we achieved with EMM Labs’ new XDS1 V3 CD/SACD Player. Inside its sculpted, brushed aluminum chassis is a silky smooth Esoteric™ drive mated to the industry’s most sophisticated digital and analog electronics.
How did we make the XDS1 V2 the best player we’ve ever created? In general terms, by simplifying. We decreased complexity. Shortened critical signal paths. Reduced parts count while increasing parts quality. Now let’s get specific.
BETTER DIGITAL STARTS WITH BETTER ANALOG
We started by simplifying our analog circuitry. Instead of the two to three gain stages typical of most player output sections, the XDS1 V2 features just one active gain stage from DAC to output. The circuitry is discrete (no op-amps) and operates in pure Class A.
MDAT2™: YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE WHY IT SOUNDS BETTER
The XDS1 V2 features our most refined Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT2™) circuitry yet. But it’s what the updated MDAT2™ does that makes it so amazing. Conventional digital players convert a digital signal (the ones and zeroes) to analog by processing it through a reconstruction filter that uses interpolation (oversampling) to smooth the analog waveform. The process works beautifully in the frequency domain, but in the time domain, errors are introduced in the form of pre and post ringing.
With MDAT2™ processing, there is no pre and post ringing. Which is why MDAT2™—quite unlike any other processing technology extant—is unique in its ability to preserve the phase, frequency and dynamic integrity of the waveform. Once you've heard this level of improvement in terms of resolution, nuance and dynamic shading, there's no going back.
NEW DAC + NEW CLOCK= NEW PARADIGM
At EMM Labs, we develop and manufacture our own proprietary conversion circuitry in house. For the XDS1 V3, we created something truly extraordinary—the MDAC™ module, which contains our most exquisitely refined conversion circuitry ever. Unlike off-the-shelf DAC chips in competing products, the MDAC™:
Is a cost-no-object (rather than inexpensive) solution
Is a discrete dual differential (rather than integrated) circuit
Is free from differential nonlinearities
Gives us complete control of the digital and analog data streams
In tandem with our new clock—one that establishes new benchmarks in jitter performance, temperature stability and vibration resistance—the result is astonishing. It’s as if the noise floor has dropped through the proverbial basement, leaving behind live, flesh and blood performers carved out of a precisely defined three-dimensional soundstage. The gains in transparency, image density, tonal color and realism are substantial.
HELLO MFAST™, GOODBYE JITTER
Most converters utilize PLL (Phase Lock Loop) circuits to lock onto the incoming data stream. For the V2, we developed a better solution: MFAST™ (Meitner Frequency Acquisition System) technology.
MFAST™ has two distinct advantages over PLLs. It’s a high-speed asynchronous system that acquires any data stream almost instantaneously. Further, unlike PLLs that merely attenuate jitter, MFAST™ strips it out of the audio stream completely.
Hook a digital audio or video source to the XDS1 V3—computer, music server, MP3 player or whatever you like—and it becomes a standalone converter. MFAST™ ensures that you’ll enjoy pristine sonic clarity, whether the incoming data stream is pure or anything but.
THE POWER OF A SUPERIOR POWER SUPPLY
Not only is our new high-isolation resonant mode power supply the greenest we’ve ever developed, it’s also the quietest—significantly outperforming typical switchers and linear power supplies in this regard.
Proprietary to both EMM Labs and the XDS1 V3, this power supply synchronizes its operating frequency (or resonant mode) to that of every other system within XDS1 V2—reducing digital noise to the vanishing point. It also offers ultra-tight regulation and virtually complete isolation from power-line impurities and fluctuations.
The EMM Labs XDS1 V3 CD/SACD Player. Everything about it is better than everything that has come before it.
It’s just that simple.

DCL-200FD Home Cinema Projector
Single Chip DLP® With Advanced LED Light Engine
The DCL-200FD produces film-like images from nearly any source – from standard definition TV shows, favorite DVDs, to the latest generation high definition broadcasts and Blu-ray™ discs. The projector’s extremely advanced engine delivers razor sharp images via its single 1920 x 1080 (1080p) 0.95 DLP® chip set from Texas Instruments. But unlike most other single-chip platforms, the DCL-200FD has eliminated the traditional UHP lamp and color wheel: this unique projector produces an image via three separate RGB (red, green, blue) high-current light emitting diodes (LEDs). These LED emitter panels are superbly efficient light sources, with an extremely wide color gamut that exceeds today’s HD broadcast standards. There’s no color wheel involved and thus no visible “rainbow” artifacts or light flicker. And best of all is the extended life of the LED panels: a typical UHP projector lamp must be replaced and recalibrated every 2000 hours or so. The DCL-200FD’s LED panels are rated to deliver accurate light output for at least 30,000 hours of continuous usage.

Walnut Burl on display
It is with great excitement that we, after a long process of research and development, can present our new addition to our new TD-series, and what a speaker. The TD3.8 is an absolute beast and a dream-project. The project was born out of demand for speakers with bigger drivers, and also because of the passion for taking Raidho to the next level.
The TD3.8 is a completely new design in our range but with the signature Raidho-look. For the first time, we have a midsized floorstanding speaker with big drivers, implementing our new patent pending driverdesign in a new 8” woofer in a dual configuration, that guarantees a deep and articulated low frequency reproduction which is still lightning fast and controlled. These are used in conjunction with two new 5” midranges sharing the same, new driverdesign.
Both midranges and woofers are with our new TD-cones (Tantalum/Diamond). It´s a 5-layer design with higher inner damping and increased stiffness, and together with the driver-design, the new magnet system, the new proprietary, edge-wound voicecoils and one of the strongest motorsystems in the world with more than 1.1 tesla, we have a speaker that is extremely dynamic, authentic and easy to listen to. The chassis is designed with an absolute minimum of reflections, giving the driver optimal conditions.
The tweeter is upgraded with a more powerful magnetsystem and a changed chamber-design eliminating reflections and lowering the already extremely low level of distortion by an additional 35 dB, while at the same time increasing sensitivity by 2 dB. We have achieved an even more open and detailed sound without sounding clinical. This is what makes our ribbon-tweeter among the best in the world, and in combination with the two new midranges, the musical experience is on a whole new level.
The enclosure is a new design with optimized acoustic flow internally. The crossover is a completely new design, with increased out-of-band filtration, lowering distortion further, as well as greatly increasing the powerhandling on each driveunit. Due to the increased efficiency (91 db 4 ohms) and extremely low levels of distortion all the way through the design, this speaker will reveal new layers in the music for you to experience, no matter which amplifier, you use. During the construction and trimming, timing, phase, low distortion and dynamics has been the absolute keywords. TD3.8 will give everything in authenticity and live-feeling, and a very honest approach to music and musicality.
Prepare to be amazed.

Jena Labs produces a very wide spectrum of interconnects and speaker cables for home stereo and professional applications. We are proud of the reputation they have achieved, and customer loyalty has been remarkable. We firmly believe that anyone who produces the best of something is eventually going to develop the reputation he or she deserves. That kind of reputation cannot be bought. That is how we have survived and thrived for so long.
We developed a concept that continues to this day, our interconnects are built to an supreme standard of excellence in performance. The application of Science and Art is not mutually exclusive but one must not be subservient to the other as regards to the main goal of Supreme performance. In the end, it is the performance mark that defines what they are made of, how they are made and what these products look like. We will continue to make cables of that caliber, in every category and type we produce.
Immersion cryogenic treatment included on all models.
All braided interconnects and power cords will have variances in lengths which is a product of both the braiding by hand and the phase length control we employ to ensure the highest performance possible. we carefully calculate to hold something close to a specified length with precision of replication but in reality they might be a little longer... such that an interconnect ordered to be 3 ft might actually be 3 ft 1 inch-ish, sort of. Perfection of sound is the goal, not accuracy of absolute length which will vary even with handling a finished interconnect... They are braided and not with a machine, yet is to physical/electrical phase match.
Our RCA type Cardas / JENA modified connectors can no longer be ordered with Gold Plating* The only offering is Rhodium Plating which is the only plating available now.
Additionally the XLR types can also be ordered with Gold Plated pins instead of the normal Silver Plating which is stock. These will have black housings.
The general effect is a slightly warmer sound with the Gold Plating... The Rhodium is known for its more neutral sound profile.
