Availability: In stock


A dedicated pure CD-only player will perform better in playback of stereo CDs than DVD or Blu-ray Disc players can. The CD Box (DC) is designed exclusively for playing audio CDs on the "Red Book standard" by Philips and is in this discipline a true master of his trade. To achieve this high-quality, a durable drive is essential for the perfect CD playback as well as a servo control, optimized for audio playback. Our servo system allows real-time scanning with minimal jitter. Together with advanced D/A converter blocks a true hifi reproduction is achieved, that usually can not be found in this price range. For even better performance see also CD Box S and CD Box DS from Pro-Ject Audio Systems.
