CDT3-MK3

The CDT3-MK3 is the flagship top-loader CD transport.

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.

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.

CDT3 can be synchronized 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.

Tremendous amount of effort has been paid to vibration control. Milled high grade aluminum chassis, coupled with milled internal vibration control aluminum structure, the CDT3 is built like a tank that spins the silver Redbook CD. (Redbook CD transport only. Doesn't support HDCD/SACD/DSD)
