True Red Book
The drive is specifically optimized for 1:1 playback of the Red Book CDDA standard. Pure CD players are, in contrast to DVD or Bluray Disc players, better in playback of stereo CDs.
Three soft points isolate the drive from external vibrations and one hard point leads frequent vibrations caused by the rapid movement of the laser inside the chassis.
Pure Player or CD Transport
Use the internal Texas Instruments PCM1796 DAC & connect your CD Box with the RCA Line output to any preamp. Or if you've invested in a separate DAC, the S/PDIF coaxial & optical output can feed it.
