Dedicated to disc
As a CD only transport, the Audio Analogue AAdrive is optimised for CD and CD alone. Based around a modified Teac CD5020A transport, it offers optimised sound quality from your CDs – just add a DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) or connect to a digital amp or AVR.
Optimised CD transport
The heart of this CD transport is a Teac CD5020A mechanism. This is designed specifically for audio use, meaning it doesn’t have the noise and performance compromises of more general CD-ROM drives. Although totally fit for purpose in its own right, Audio Analogue have made it even better. Adding a solid aluminium support clamp, for example, improves the rigidity for lower levels of read error, giving reduced distortion.
Choice of outputs
With a choice of coaxial or balanced XLR outputs, the AAdrive connects to a wide range of components. Use the coaxial to wire up to your DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) or digital amp, or, better still, connect via XLR to a compatible ‘pro’ grade DAC, such as the matching AAdac.
AAdac – the perfect partner
Connect to the AAdac, preferably via the XLR interface, and you have a world-class CD player. Designed together, these components sound even greater than the sum of their individual parts. As both components are half width, placed side-by-side they take up no more space than a regular CD player. Plus, they look exquisite.
With its sleek metal facia and minimalist design, the AAdrive reflects all that’s best about Italian design. The high quality finish extends to the remote control, which is housed in a metal case that matches the CD’s front panel in design.
Treat your CDs to the best they can get, with the Audio Analogue AAdrive.
