Get Maximum Realism from Your CDs
Don't expect your universal Blu-ray disc player to bring out the best in your CDs. Universal disc players are designed to do many things well, but they don't have the dedicated circuitry to excel with the unique requirements of compact disc playback. They typically cut corners and make compromises.
In contrast to DVD or Blu-ray Disc players, a 'pure' CD play is usually better with CDs. But for top-drawer compact disc performance, there is no substitute for using a dedicated CD transport plus a high quality DAC. That's the way to get maximum realism from your CDs.
A Pure Audio CD Transport
The Pro-Ject CD Box DS2T is designed exclusively as a pure audio CD transport, sending digital "Red Book standard" signals to an external DAC (not included). It is a true master of its trade. In addition to providing the highest quality sound, it uses a durable drive that's essential for the perfect CD playback. For best performance, Pro-Ject houses its CD drives in vibration-resistant cabinets.
Pro-Ject's servo system allows real-time scanning with minimal jitter. Pro-Ject decided to make its newest generation CD Box a pure transport, because ideally the DAC electronics and the CD drive should be separated from each other to realize the best possible sound signature.
Capabilities and Convenience Features
The CD Box DS2T excels with CD, CD-R, CD-RW, and Hybrid-SACD discs. Its complement of digital outputs consists of 1 x co-axial (S/PDIF), 1 x optical (S/PDIF), and 1 x XLR (AES/EBU).
For convenient operation, a wireless remote control is included. You can also operate the unit via the front panel controls. A rear panel 12-volt trigger in/out makes for easy system integration
Enjoy your CDs at a new level by using the CD Box DS2T with any advanced D/A converter, such as Pro-Ject's DAC Box DS2 Ultra. Together, these components achieve high end sound reproduction that simply can't be found anywhere in this price range.
