M1CDT - Overview
- The M1 CDT is designed to do one thing brilliantly: play your CDs.
- A CD player typically integrates both a transport section and a digital-to-analogue converter (DAC), along with other ancillary components.
- The M1 CDT is a transport only, allowing us to optimise its ability to read the digital discs and deliver the data with no interference from analogue circuitry.
Accuracy is further improved by our use of a premium stabilised clock system, which ensures low-jitter performance. Again, that means you%&&&%ll hear more from your music when it%&&&%s played on the M1 CDT.
For sound and styling, the slot-loading M1 CDT is the perfect partner for the M1 CLiC or M1 DAC. The resultant compact pairing will take up the same space as a conventional-sized CD player and yet deliver so much more in terms of flexibility and performance.
M1CDT - Design and Build
- The M1 CDT is a high-quality, slot-loading CD transport – a dedicated player of your compact disc collection.
- Removing the digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) and any other extraneous components leaves a pure digital disc transport, with no interference from those other elements.
- Jitter is another unwanted element of digital replay – and one with the M1 CDT minimises thanks to our use of a premium stabilised clock system.
- The M1 CDT shares the same compact casing design as other members of the M1 Series, but it%&&&%s not just a styling match – there are strong performance reasons why you should pair it with the M1 DAC or M1 CLiC.
- The M1 CDT can be connected in true balanced mode to the M1 DAC via its AES/EBU output. This audiophile option delivers optimum, audible performance benefits.
- As the Hi-Fi Choice review said of this M1 pairing: "the overall impression is one of even-handedness, and there is a sense that [its] main ability is to get out of the way of the music and let the disc speak for itself".
- The M1 CDT also offers optical and coaxial connections, enabling it to partner perfectly with the M1 CLiC – adding CD to music streaming capabilities, giving you the best of both worlds.
