INTRODUCTION
GOLDMUND EIDOS 20CD – CD Player
Goldmund was founded in 1978 and has ever since been dedicated to the accurate reproduction of
sound and image.
At Goldmund, we strive to lead in the creation, development and manufacture of the industry’s most
advanced technologies, including audio and video systems, home networking and music
distribution.
The guiding principle at Goldmund is to produce a precise sound with the least possible loss of
quality through the different stages. Goldmund will never adopt a technology before it is sufficiently
developed to satisfy the high quality standards we set. This is why Goldmund has often rejected
mainstream technologies and developed its own.

UNPACKING
You will find in the GOLDMUND EIDOS 20CD box:
- The player.

ATTENTION
Please keep the packaging in case you need to transport the player at a later date or if you

LINE VOLTAGE ADJUSTMENT
The power supply of your unit has been adjusted to operate with the AC voltage of your
area. Check on the back panel of the unit in any doubt. If you move after purchasing the
player to an area using different mains voltage, do not forget to switch the back panel
selector to the new voltage of your area.
The player has been designed to tolerate both 50 and 60Hz mains voltage.

2.3
CHOICE OF PLAYER LOCATION
Due to the specific quality of its Goldmund "Mechanical Grounding" construction, the
Goldmund Player is less critical than other designs in placement selection. Feedback is
mostly so low that no special precaution is required. Nevertheless, position the player as far
as you can from all speakers if you want to totally avoid the air coupling between the
speakers and the player.
Locate the player on a support providing the most rigid possible connection to the floor.
Solid coupling is essential, and if your support is standing on a suspended floor, at least one
foot should be located over a supporting beam or close to a supporting wall for an optimal
result.
2.4
POWER CONNECTION
Plug the AC power cord into the back of the EIDOS 20CD and in a wall socket. Switch the
back power switch ON and press STANDBY/ON on the remote control to switch the player
on.
You can also use the OPEN/CLOSE button to switch on the player and open the disc tray at
the same time.
When first activated the system will take a few seconds to load and verify all settings before
illuminating the display. This delay is normal. On completion, the front display will be
illuminated as you press any key or when pressing the remote control STANDBY/ON button,
meaning the unit is now powered on.
This player features a screen saver. If the player is stopped or paused and no button is
pressed for five minutes, the screen saver starts.

BACK PANEL CABLE CONNECTIONS
AUDIO CONNECTIONS
The Goldmund EIDOS 20CD is equipped in standard with the following stereo
output standard connectors:
o
o
o
75 Ohm RCA coaxial SPDIF connector.
TOSLINK optical cable output.
HDMI Output connector
You may use these connectors to connect your player to a D/A converter or digital
preamplifier.
Goldmund recommends that the greatest care is taken when selecting the cable
linking the player to the D/A converter or digital preamplifier. The very accurate
signal provided by the EIDOS 20CD can easily be impaired by an imperfect
connection.
Use a "Goldmund Lineal™" cable from the coaxial output if you want to reach the
most accurate jitter-free connection for CD playback.
