CDT3-MK3

THE Flagship Top-loader CD Transport

CDPRO2-LF Laser

Equipped with Philips CDPRO2 LF, proprietary tuned by Jay's Audio chief, Jay Ho. 

The CDPRO2 module is mounted to massive aluminium plate which are in turn affixed with damped mountings for complete mechanical isolation.

Jay stock piled hundred of CDPRO2 LF. Critical audiophiles who demand longevity of the CDT are well covered with the spare parts when needed.

 

OCXO

In digital audio, the quality of the crystal plays a big part in the audio quality. 

CDT3-MK3 is equipped with low noise, low phase noise, low jitter, ultra precision Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator.

The residual jitter at <1ps is undetectable with the test equipment on the market. 

 

Master Clock I.O.

CDT3 can be synchronised with downstream equipment (DAC) via its 10MHz clock I/O.

 

With external clock connected, it bypasses the internal OCXO, the CDT3 is slaved to the Master Clock. 

Mechanical Isolation

Tremendous amount of attentions to vibration control were implemented.

 

Milled high grade aluminium chassis, coupled with milled internal vibration control aluminium structure, the CDT3 is built like a tank that spin the silver Redbook CDT with negligible g-force.
