Jay's Audio - CD players and DAC

On this page you will find Jay's Audio products. Jay's Audio focuses on designing and manufacturing CD players, based on the best Philips mechanisms, and high end DACs. According to Jay's Audio, CDs are still the best way to play music. After hearing their products you understand why.

 

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)

CDT2-MK3

The CDT2-MK3 is a high end CD transport. It is based on the legendary Philips CDM4 mechanism and is therefore ideal for enthusiasts with a CD collection who want to enjoy it in the best possible way for years to come.
Only the best components are used, such as Noratel encapsulated transformers, Crystek Femto clock and Neutrik connectors.
This CD transport has captured many audiophile hearts and has a price/quality ratio that cannot be beat.
An external DAC is required.

 

The improvements compared to the very successful MK2 version are:

  • Even better clock (OCXO) for even less jitter and an even better sound
  • NOS / Upsampling (44.1kHz or 176.4kHz) switchable via remote control
  • Dimmable display
  • Improved noise filter
