Cambridge Audio’s New EVO CD Transport: Made to Mate With Other EVOs Only

To my eyes, Cambridge makes sexy gear and their new EVO CD Transport fits that description to a T.

You can choose between old school woody side panels or modern waves to fit your style. The company claims the acoustically dampened metal chassis and drive tray help keep noise at bay. Form and function!

Unfortunately for non-EVO people, the EVO CD’s only output is a single bespoke ‘Evo Link’.

From Cambridge:

Evo CD uses our new S5 Servo, an upgrade on the acclaimed S3 found in CXC. It features even better speed precision and musical data retrieval than its predecessor. Evo CD doesn’t use a multi-purpose disc drive, but a custom designed piece of engineering with the sole purpose of playing audio CDs with unfailing accuracy.

The Cambridge EVO CD Transport comes with an asking price of $1199.
