High-speed front-loading Compact Disc drive for ripping CDs
For fast CD ripping, CA X30 uses an optical disc drive (ODD) with 24x high speed. It can rip a one hour playing time CD in less than 10 minutes.

High-quality sound through Burr-Brown HD DAC and isolated power source design
For high-quality sound output, CA X30 features the famous Burr-Brown PCM1792A DAC, TCXO oscillator and isolated power source circuit design for digital and analogue.
High resolution (24bit/192Khz) digital output
CA X30 provides three digital outputs, such as TOSLINK, COAXIAL and AES/EBU XLR, which support up to 24bit/192Khz. This means the X30 can be used as an audio server and source device for those wishing to use an existing external amplifier and DAC.

Multiple inputs and outputs for versatile connectivity
CA X30 offers various audio inputs and outputs for connection to other audio devices, as well as a TV. Three digital outputs, two analogue outputs, two digital inputs and two analogue inputs allow high connectivity with multiple devices.

High performance stereo diigital amplifier with dynamic 100W
A TI high-performance stereo digital amplifier chip, isolated power source circuit design and TCXO oscillator – with low noise and low distortion ­– makes CA X30 an ideal hi-fi component for an existing bookshelf or high quality floor standing (power load) speakers.

Fast CD ripping with CD metadata including album cover art
CA X30 can rip CD with fast speed. It will catalogue your CD collection by album, artist, genre, year, and will store all ripped CDs into the music database. X30 provides four ripping options(endcoding): WAV, FLAC, MP3 or OGG. 

Quick and easy set-up thanks to 5in LCD screen
For high-quality sound output, CA X30 features the famous Burr-Brown PCM1792A DAC, TCXO oscillator and isolated power source circuit design for digital and analogue.
