Gato Audio CDD-1 CD Player / Digital Analogue Converter

Gato have combined a creamy summation of all the best technological breakthroughs stemming from the developments in the CD's 30 year history, and in addition included a couple of innovations we are proud to have made specifically for this ground-breaking DAC/CD drive.

Digital to Analogue Converter

Especially highlighted is the true 24bit/192kHz digital inputs via USB or Coaxial connector, that enables a sonic performance vastly above that of any CD. Use the CDD-1 as a digital connection point for your computer, iPad and streaming devices and it will give you a stunning performance with effortless soundstage and musical details in return.

CD Transport

The CDD-1 will also play ordinary CDs, retrieving all the fine details of your music collection through the professionally specified and widely acclaimed Philips CDpro2 mechanism.

Awarded Editors Choice - "Although the attention-grabbing design is a big part of the package, these luxurious products offer a harmonious listening experience too, especially together. They sound relaxed, presenting instruments and voices with realistic textures, rather than edging them with 'hi-fi' super detailing." Hi-Fi News, Oct 2013
