Optimised to be the perfect partner for your Attessa system, the CD Transport integrates with the Attessa amps to become a single system. So you get all the benefits of a cutting-edge Hi-Fi system, like MQA when used with Streaming Amp, plus all the simplicity you could want.
Imagine being able to combine your CD transport and amplifier into a single, seamlessly connected unit. That’s the beauty of the Attessa CD transport, which perfectly pairs with either our Streaming or Integrated Amplifier. This enables Master Quality Audio playback, while the simplicity of the design, with no unnecessary onboard circuitry, enables maximum data retrieval from your discs. Likewise, we’ve designed the system to minimise the length of the signal path from the laser, reducing jitter. With custom firmware developed especially for the Attessa range, playback is clean, accurate and easier than ever to achieve.
Transport only, for your choice of DAC or digital amp
As a transport only, the Attessa CD Transport comes without a built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor). This not only saves you money but also gives you the freedom to choose your own DAC or partner the CD transport with a digital amp, such as the matching Roksan Attessa amplifiers.
Short signal path for low jitter
Minimising the length of the signal from the laser means there’s less space and time for the signal to denigrate. This means lower levels of jitter for a smoother, less distorted sound. Less distortion means more detail and a more natural, lifelike sound quality.
The perfect match for Attessa amplifiers
Blending seamlessly with the Roksan Attessa amplifiers, the CD Transport looks and works perfectly with either the Attessa Integrated or Streaming Amplifiers. By simply using the Maestro Unite communication between CD and amp, the two units are optimised with one another during set-up. They also make the perfect visual match.
BluOS control of the CD player when paired with Attessa Streaming Amplifier
When connected to an Attessa Streaming Amplifier you also get the option of BluOS control. This not only lets you control the CD Transport via your smartphone or tablet but also gives you the potential to play CDs in other BluOS compatible music zones.
MQA playback when paired with Attessa Streaming Amplifier
Another advantage of pairing the CD Transport with the Attessa Streaming Amplifier is the benefit of MQA playback. MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) playback, as used by the likes of TIDAL Masters, gives top quality sound without data heavy files, making it a popular system with streaming companies.
With its low profile, wraparound steel lid and anodized aluminium front panel, the Attessa looks as smooth and seamless as it sounds. Available in black or silver finishes, its classic style blends effortlessly with its surroundings.
