CD Box DS3 -High End CD Player and Transport

The CD Box DS3 comes equipped with a Texas Instruments PCM1796 DAC to provide you the perfect CD player with all the features you need. Easily control the CD player with the front panel interface, or with the supplied remote control, and the high contrast dot-matrix display shows you all relevant information you need to enjoy your favourite albums.

True Red Book

The drive is specifically optimized for 1:1 playback of the Red Book CDDA standard. Pure CD players are, in contrast to DVD or Bluray Disc players, better in playback of stereo CDs.


Three soft points isolate the drive from external vibrations and one hard point leads frequent vibrations caused by the rapid movement of the laser inside the chassis.

Pure Player or CD Transport

Use the internal Texas Instruments PCM1796 DAC & connect your CD Box with the RCA Line output to any preamp. Or if you've invested in a separate DAC, the S/PDIF coaxial & optical output can feed it.
