INTRODUCTION
GOLDMUND EIDOS 36T – 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.

area. Check on the back panel of the unit if in any doubt. If you move after purchasing the

selector to the new voltage of your area. The unit can operate at 50 or 60 Hz mains.

CHOICE OF THE PLAYER LOCATION
Due to the specific quality of its Goldmund "Mechanical Grounding" construction, the
Goldmund Eidos 36T 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 the speakers if you want to totally avoid the air coupling
between the speakers and the player.
Locate the player to provide the most rigid possible connection to the building construction.
Solid coupling is essential and the support used (Rack, Table, Shelf) must be as rigid and
solid as possible.

POWER CONNECTION
Plug the AC power cord to the back of the Eidos 36T and in a wall socket. Switch the back
power switch to ON. The front display will light up as soon as you press any key or when
pressing the remote control STANDBY button, meaning the unit is now powered on.

AUDIO CONNECTIONS
The Eidos 36T is equipped with the following to connect your player to a D/A converter or
digital preamplifier:
o
75 Ohms RCA coaxial SPDIF connector.
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 36T can easily be ruined by an imperfect connection. Use a "Goldmund Lineal™"
cable from the coaxial output if you want to achieve the most accurate jitter-free connection
for CD playback.
