”A CD transport that can also play digital files from flash drive.” ’Hi-Fi World’ – 5 Globe review ‘Outstanding’.

The legend that is Leak

During the mid-twentieth century, Leak audio were a leading UK hi-fi company. From their legendary valve amps, tuners and Sandwich speakers, to the mould-breaking Stereo 30 transistor amp, Leak were a first division player.

Return to form
Sadly closed in 1979, Leak is now back with a range of hi-fi products that celebrates the best of the brand but with a modern twist. The CDT features the compact dimensions and classic art-deco style of the original Leak products but with technology that was unheard of at the time.

CD Transport only – the perfect match for the Stereo 130 or your choice of DAC
As a transport only, the Leak CDT 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. Alternatively, it makes the perfect pairing for amps with digital inputs, such as the ideally matched Leak Stereo 130.

Top quality sound
With ‘read ahead buffering’, the CDT minimises tracking errors and disc flaws to deliver smooth, consistent sound. A high quality master clock reduces jitter, giving ultra-low levels of distortion for the most lifelike sound.

Slick, slot-load mechanism
Using a premium, slot-load mechanism makes this player faster to load and cleaner in style. Doing without the traditional loading tray also reduces the chance of resonance, potentially improving sound quality still further.

USB storage device playback
As well as CDs, the CDT also plays back music files from your USB storage device. Simply plug in to the handily positioned, front-mounted USB to play your digital music files. The CDT is compatible with FAT16 and FAT32 formatted devices and plays back WMA, MP3, WAV and AAC files.

Chose the output that’s best for you
Featuring both optical and coaxial digital outputs, the CDT works with almost all DACs and digital amps. 12v trigger sockets make it easy to incorporate the CDT into a home media system.

Timeless design
With its compact case, walnut wood sleeve and art-deco design details, the Leak CDT has a strong, heritage appeal. Modern manufacturing techniques make the finish better than ever, giving you the best of both worlds.

Spin your silver discs in style, with the Leak CDT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leak CDT Had designs on another cd transport/player but saw the Leak CDT on display and I was sold on it. I plan to get the Leak 130 amp and suitable speakers (help!) later but for now I use the optical input to a sound bar and it works great. I can't comment on sound until I get the analogue bits but functionally it works well. A low profile memory stick (the longer ones can stress the usb socket if knocked) with a copy of my in-car MP3 recordings works well with the CDT. James and Rob were very helpful. I would recommend the Leak CDT and Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smart, simple and good quality sold with the amp - my only gripe was that it seemed a bit mean not to include and opt interconnect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit I bought this CD transport to replace my old CD player. I'm running it through a Chord Qutest dac, also an RS purchase, and the sound is excelent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent all round product The Leak CDT Walnut sleeve is a delight, solid wood, not MDF or plywood, the mechanism is totally silent. I have tried several CD transport over the last couple of years, One far more expensive unit, sounded the almost the same as my Cambridge transport. The Leak CDT is feeding a Chord Qutest, The combination sounds fantastic. Very smooth, clean and a detailed top end with good bass & grip. The bass is a bit full at times, but I should be able to tame this, by using a digital cable with more capacitance,
