CDT-2B is a CD transport developed by ESD Acoustic specifically for audiophiles who seek ultimate sound quality. It utilizes the highly acclaimed and well-reviewed Philips CD-Pro2M transport mechanism.

This CD transport features a top-loading lid design. Specially designed ceramic balls, magnetic levitation, and springs form a triple-shock absorption structure for the mechanisms, further enhancing the precision of disc reading.

The transport is equipped with a constant temperature ultra-low phase noise clock with a frequency stability of up to ±0.025ppm. When combined with the clock management circuit newly developed by ESD Acoustic, it provides the entire system with a high-quality clock reference.

It supports external input expansion of a 10MHz reference clock, allowing users to use a higher-level external reference clock.

This is a CD Transport that supports true balanced analog audio output. It applies ES9038PRO chips for DAC decoding, achieving high-quality digital-to-analog audio conversion.

The Transport employs 13 channels of high-precision, ultra-low noise voltage regulation power supplies to provide high-reliability and high-quality power supply for various functional modules of the entire machine.

The CDT-2B Transport innovatively adopts a switching power supply to achieve AC-DC conversion and can operate within a wide voltage range of 80-280V, completely resolving the most challenging power supply issue for audiophiles.
