The CD Box DS2 is a premium CD player and Hi-Res DAC with four digital inputs, so it can function as both a CD player and a standalone DAC.

The CD Box DS2 is based on the popular CD Box DS2 T transport, with its four-layer suspended system, for maximum retrieval of digital information from a playing CD. However, for ultimate convenience the transport is paired with a high-fidelity DAC in the same box. The AK4490 DAC chip employed ensures every piece of information is effectively converted into a clean analogue signal for a detailed, musical experience. 

With four additional digital inputs, the CD Box DS2 is also a comprehensive standalone DAC. The USB input works with any computer operating system, and it offers high resolution file support up to PCM 32-bit / 384kHz and DSD256. The optical and coaxial inputs can be used with sources up to 24-bit / 192kHz. For added personalisation, the CD Box DS2 also offers digital filters to shape the sound to your liking; choose between five filters for PCM files and two filters for DSD.

The CD Box DS2 is effortlessly simple to use with the supplied remote or using the front-mounted control buttons, and for CD playback the dot-matrix display gives clear information. Connectivity is equally versatile, with two digital outputs and a fixed line-level RCA output for passing onto a pre- or integrated amplifier.  

With all this functionality in one compact box, the CD Box DS2 is capable of acting as the ultimate digital hub for any mid-priced hi-fi system. 

Like all other DS2 products, the CD Box DS2 is available in a variety of finishes, including with or without retro styled wooden side panels (read our FAQ for more information).
