I am pretty sure I read on a German forum that the laser is off during regular operation with no CD and during DAC operation. I would check with Accuphase directly to clarify.

No CD/SACD player in the world shines its laser when it's not spinning a disc. In fact, it could be a safety issue when opening the drawer, as laser beams could escape and damage eyes...

I thought I'd read/heard that somewhere a while ago... good point and makes sense... why would they?

The information i got is from German forum quoting PIA, international larget distributor outside Japan.

“The disadvantage of CD players is still that they do not switch off the laser if it is only used as a DAA converter.

Hello Hans,
Is it hearsay or do you have specific information about it?

Yes, that is the current state of the art from PIA. I don't understand either. Indeed, it would be easy to solve. And such obvious artificial aging is actually not the style of the house...”



Note : laser diode life from 7000 to 10,000 hours continuous use <Non-officially acknowledged hours rating from a MAJOR CD/LD player manufacture>

This is a light bulb in a sense and all light sources will eventually degrade.


Best would be to ask distributor or direct Accuphase Japan ...

the one time I sent a technical message to Accuphase in Japan, they simply forwarded the message to my US Distributor who return a non-answer ..

Good luck getting accurate technical data on anything with them.... they don't speak English, and it appears that it's not your first language either, but you are doing a lot better than I can with Swedish ..

There is a later thread in the same German Hifi forum (the main Accuphase thread, p192) which clarified the information above as "fake news".

A call with the PIA, the German Accuphase Distributor confirmed that there is no issue with operating Accuphase Players as DAC alone. The previous information in the above by Hans and Joerg was confirmed as incorrect and based on possibly outdated information (by 15 years). Unfortunately the link to the actual thread is not allowed per AA forum rules so here is the Google English translation:

"Feedback from the PIA on laser operation:

The laser is only activated when a CD is played - or in pause mode.

Any other statement is not true!

I could hear the frown through the phone ;-)

Who has given this previous answer by the PIA could not be traced either ...

So we can file this under fake news."


So in summary:
The Laser is off unless a CD is on play or pause.

Thumbs up Great news !

Thanks for the information , did no see it posted this November .

Will be able to have full benefit of DP 750 DAC on Qobuz

It would had been absurd indeed to have to buy external DAC ou DAC 50 to save the Transport laser diode...


Fake new or outdated info sorry to relay somehow the issue here by my question

At least I learned something ...
