    Nowadays, fewer and fewer people want to invest in a high-end £600 CD player like you might have done many years ago. As CDs continue to lose relevance, eventually it might just end up as a big black box that sits idle next to the rest of the beautiful HiFi-System. However, the sound quality of those expensive players from back in the day is still sought after by many audiophiles. We want to offer our customers a unit that comes as close as possible to the sound of these old players by making use of modern DAC converters and excellent, sophisticated CD transports. All this, at a price-point that is more competitive in today‘s shifting audio-landscape.

    Pure CD players are, in contrast to DVD or Blu-ray Disc players, frequently better in the playback of stereo CDs. The drive is specifically optimised for 1:1 playback of the Red Book CDDA standard. It is put in a torsion-resistant cabinet. Our servo system allows real-time scanning with minimal jitter.

    But, the CD Box DS2 must also stay an important device that continually sees use in modern stereo systems, which is why it is more than just a regular CD player. The built in extreme quality AK4490 DAC chip is used by the most renowned companies of the world because of its outstanding sound and performance.

    CD Box DS2 offers four digital inputs and can be used as a standalone DAC in addition. The USB input can be used with any computer, it offers high-resolution file support for PCM up to 32bit/384kHz and even DSD256. The optical and coaxial inputs can be used up to 24bit/192kHz.

    CD Box DS2 also offers digital filters to shape the sound to your liking; five filters for PCM files as well as two filters for DSD can be chosen.

    It also offers two digital outputs to further pass a digital signal to another digital to analogue converter. A line-level RCA output can be used for any pre- or integrated amplifier.

    Future proof functionality and diverse feature-set
    All this functionality combined makes the CD Box DS2 the digital centre-hub of your HiFi system. Upgrade options are possible by connecting external DAC‘s, further adding to CD Box DS2‘s longevity and staying power.

    CD Box DS2 offers a very high build quality with its full aluminium cabinet and can be further improved aesthetically with great looking wooden side panels in walnut and eucalyptus!

    CD Box DS2 is a real delight for any modern music lover and displays a future proof design with its versatility. In respect of the feature set and audio quality, CD Box DS2 is a true audiophile bargain.
