TSD1 CD/SACD Transport

EMM Labs

Solid-state CD/SACD transport from EMM Labs
how it sounds

Like the DAC2, its companion converter, the TSD1 transport has been endowed with Meitner Digital Audio Translator (MDAT™) signal processing technology. Connect transport and dac via the single-cable EMM Link interface and your CDs and SACDs are automatically upsampled to 5.6 mHz, double the SACD standard sampling rate. MDAT™ also dynamically adapts to the transient nature of musical signal instead of addressing it conventionally, as a series of sine waves. This technology enables the TSD1 to do something unheard of in the world of digital audio: preserve the phase and frequency integrity of the original signal.
