The Obelisk DT is a dedicated compact disc audio transport, reading both conventional and HDCDs, and outputting flawless digital data to any high quality Digital-to-Analogue processor.
We designed the DT to be one of the best optical disc players available. Its uncompromising technical approach makes it well suited for partnering with a wide variety of DACs, from our small Dactil 1.2 card module (as used optionally in many Heed components: Obelisk Si, Obelisk PRE, Dactilus, Canalot) up to more high-end devices such as our Obelisk DA, the DT’s ideal partner.
It must be strange to offer a standalone CD-transport in a market, where the digital-to-analogue converters advertised as the most important elements of a digital system. However, we think that the best data retrieval and transfer from a source disc is a very complex task and must be made with extra care to achieve a great sound. Like a phono cartridge and its preamp stage, the disc readout and the DAC have two entirely different role, and they must be separated to achieve the best results. As we have a DAC upgrade card system for our amplifiers, we have designed the Obelisk DT to be a no-compromise transport for the 12 cm discs.
Of course, we strongly suggest a serious audition to hear what this exceptional transport is capable of. If you are a discerning music lover on the lookout for a truly musical player, even by the highest analogue standards, the Obelisk DT may well be your ultimate CD-playing device.
