Accustic Arts DRIVE I

Accustic Arts DRIVE I


CD Transport


The ACCUSTIC ARTS® DRIVE I is a high precision CD Transport made with great attention to detail and designed to deliver optimum performance. If you are very satisfied with your choice of DAC and require a high quality CD transport to enjoy your CD collection for many years to come, the DRIVE I is an excellent choice.

The heart of the DRIVE I is a high-end traction-feed drive which is exclusively designed for audio applications. The drive has a high quality and resonance-optimized CD tray in aluminium and is guided by two metal bars.

There is a famous saying among audiophiles “rubbish in – rubbish out”, which essentially describes the common observation that high quality sound begins at the source component. The role of the CD transport is vital as it reads the CD and delivers the information to the DAC with purity and precision. The execution of this step sets the standard for the rest of the system downstream and the ACCUSTIC ARTS® DRIVE I is a phenomenal choice for this critical role.
