The CDT Five has been specifically engineered for sonic performance rather than technical specification, and fulfils all Audio Note (UK) Level 5 criteria. No expense had been spared in any area, and we have used the finest possible components and materials available to construct this truly outstanding, Reference class CD Transport.
Top loading in-house custom modified Philips CD Pro2LF mechanism mounted on sprung sub-chassis, providing vibration-free operation.
Valve digital output stage with valve rectified power supply, custom designed and built output transformer. All silver-wired, Black Gate capacitors everywhere, Audio Note (UK) PALLAS digital interconnect used for internal digital signal transfer.
The CDT-Five is equipped as standard with 1 x single ended / RCA 75 Ohm digital output, as we find this offers the best form of connection for the valve digital output stage. However, a single unconnected balanced / XLR output socket is fitted to the chassis as standard, and this connection option can be specified by the customer at the time of ordering, if required.
