The CD-T was designed to play compact discs with a stunning level of resolution, dynamics and musical naturalness. The overall sense of transparency and purity is simply breathtaking, offering a sense of relaxed intimacy with the recorded performance. The playback mechanism continues to be the unsurpassed Philips PRO-2 and still one of the best dedicated CD mechanisms available and providing world class performances in a perfect engineered design.

We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our pre-amplifiers to date have used single-ended pure class-A circuitry. The shorter the signal path is, the less possibility of sonic degradation from various sources, including the wire itself. Even on the circuit boards, the copper traces are kept to a very minimum length. The completely redesigned circuit board provides a more straightforward and direct approach to the signal paths.
The power supplies have been further refined with new components and enhanced AC line noise filtration. Separate power transformer windings and filters provide total isolation between the CD-mechanism and digital signal.
The type of parts used therefore must have a synergistic relationship to the circuit they are placed in. It is this relationship of which type of part to use where, that ranks our products apart from the mass.
The high grade aluminum chassis impart a richer, more lustrous tonality with a cleaner back-ground and less hash and grain. All brushed anodized anti-vibration-resonance and non-magnetic chassis′s are fully hand assembled to insure the highest level of craftsmanship.
