CD t - the design

The CDt is an audiophile CD transport widely seen as the best CD transport in its class because it uses many of the top end components put into our flagship CDXt Signature. As well as our unique Servo Evolution disc reading engine, the CDt houses many components usually reserved for players costing a great deal more.

A multi-regulated power supply allows the Servo Evolution software to work with miniscule precision, pulling huge amounts of data from your disc and transporting that to a separate DAC without adding or taking away anything from the music itself.

A complex re-clocking circuit with close tolerance crystal VCO is used, resulting in sound that is pure and full.

In tests, it produces industry-leading read error rates, which is why the CDt is often named the best CD transport in its price range.

Partner this fantastic CD transport with the 82DAC integrated amplifier and digital-to-analogue converter or the Pre₂ DAC.

The CDt can also be upgraded to our CDXt Signature for the ultimate CD player. For more information on our Signature range please read here.

“Yes, you’ll need to add a good standalone DAC, but the CD t is worth the extra trouble. Its level of transparency, clarity and insight is unrivalled at this price, and is an effortless and musical listen.”

“I immediately noticed a tight and timely bass. It is surprising that relatively small boxes can put in such a performance. The other sound aspects, however, are equally well emphasised, as if the whole sound signature was drawn using a ruler. In this presentation, attack and control play the first fiddle. Resolution and large, vivid soundstage also deserve attention. It is a performance that raises the level of adrenaline. Unexpectedly resolving and lively. “

“Nothing has made so good a first impression on me for a long time. Although the equipment was not yet warmed up after its first launch, I had the impression that the system was at least twice more expensive than it really was. In dynamic rock recordings Cyrus delivered a very free-flowing sound, devoid of any signs of aggression or intrusiveness. In addition, we get an excellent tonal balance, speed and natural timbre. No wonder that already during this first listening session the British set crammed me into the chair for long hours. I do not hide that I like such energetic and resolving sound. It is definitely more relaxing to me than the so-called “warm coziness”.”
