The idea behind the CD Di is to provide audio enthusiasts with a high-quality digital source that will not only play an existing CD library to the expected audiophile standard, but will also host an array of other digital sources as one audiophile ‘hub’. By incorporating both the CD player and the DAC into one box, users can both save space by avoiding the need for extra boxes and guarantee consistent audio performance across all digital platforms.
The CD section of the CD Di is based on the established K3 CD. Incorporating premium components and first-class circuit design, the K3 CD Di delivers the same almost analogue sound quality when playing music from a CD.
The DAC section of the CD Di features both optical and coaxial digital inputs that are capable of handling data streams up to 24-bit/192kHz, so a variety of alternative digital players can also be connected to it. By utilising these inputs, other digital sources can benefit from the highly coveted sound quality and the superlative signal-handling that Roksan electronics are renowned for. The digital inputs are selectable via the use of a three position rocker switch underneath the unit.
Aesthetically the CD Di perfectly matches the rest of the K3 series, except for the inclusion of a bi-coloured LED that sits underneath the front plate. The LED illuminates to highlight which digital source the unit is currently set to (Coaxial = White LED, Optical = Blue LED). This adds an extra element to the product that is both striking and appealing.
Usability is effortlessly simple with the supplied system remote, and the usual array of CD Playback modes (shuffle, repeat etc.) can all be accessed easily from the comfort of your listening position.
The K3 CD Di brings all your digital music into one place, delivering one consistent, highly-regarded sound performance to your hi-fi system.
