AudioLab M-CDT CD Transport

AudioLab M-CDT CD Transport

Sorry, This product is no longer available



While we may be living in the age of digital downloaded music and streaming, many of us still retain a valued CD collection, and often prefer the detailed and rich sound that these discs provide. Audiolab recognise the demand for this more traditional way of playing music, and for that reason have produced the M-CDT, a CD transport that's been designed and engineered to match the M-DAC and Q-DAC pre-amplifiers flawlessly, in terms of astonishing performance and in aesthetic.

While the tray and slot loading mechanism is convenient and durable, the true beauty of the MCDT is found within the digital reading aspect of the machine. A sophisticated digital decoder feeds coaxial and optical outputs allowing for a versatile number of connectivity options. 

Trigger In/Out links allow you to power up and down the M-CDT using a remote control, while also powering up and down other units within a stack of components, which in turn allows for a much more convenient method of operation. The transport's control functions can be operated from Audiolab's M-DAC remote control.
