Audio Note is highly critical of the digital medium as presented by compact disc; we sincerely hope that you too will find this transport breaks free from the 'digital mould' that we are all so accustomed to, and so open a new window on your CD collection.
Inside this front-loading model, a Philips L1210/S transport and its integral logic board are mounted atop three robust nylon pillars, themselves bolted to the floor of the steel chassis.
Behind the aluminum faceplate is a second, larger logic board, made in-house and containing the basic user controls—buttons for open/close, stop, play/pause, back and forward skip—as well as the bits needed for communicating with the CDT One's rather basic remote-control handset.
A length of Audio Note's AN-V symmetrical-silver coaxial cable carries the digital signal to a small output board, which itself connects to both balanced (XLR) and single-ended (RCA) outputs.
The last and largest element inside the CDT One is its power-supply board, which contains two separate mains transformers and three solid-state rectifiers.
