Product Information

A New Life for CD

Evo CD is the compact disc transport developed to exclusively partner Evo network players. It shares the same eye-catching design, is crafted from the same premium materials, and is engineered to the same exacting standards. Evo CD extracts every piece of musical detail from your discs, then passes it seamlessly to Evo*. Your CD collection is now set to join the hi-fi evolution.


  • High quality audio CD transport
  • Custom designed S5 Servo
  • Custom digital output to Evo
  • Gapless playback
  • Acoustically dampened metal chassis
  • Changeable side panels

*Please Note: The EVO CD Transport is designed to only work with the Cambridge EVO75 and EVO150 network amplifiers.

Precision Driving

Evo CD uses Cambridge's new S5 Servo, an upgrade on the acclaimed S3 found in CXC. It improves on S3’s already class-leading levels of jitter rejection and error correction. 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.

Engineered for Sound

The anodized aluminum that encases Evo CD’s precision components not only matches Evo’s purposeful design, but it also contributes to its performance. The acoustically dampened metal chassis ensures that nothing interferes with the signal as it passes to Evo’s Digital to Analogue Converter via its single bespoke ‘Evo Link’ output cable.

Timeless Style

Designed exclusively for pairing with Evo, Evo CD shares the same premium materials and dimensions – for placement below or side-by-side the network player. It’s your call, as is the decision over which of the two styles of side panels to opt for. Together Evo and Evo CD have a confident style, that acknowledges Cambridge's heritage but also looks to the future.

Form and Function

Evo CD’s sole purpose is spinning discs, to pass accurate musical information to Evo, this allows for a minimalist design – with a single button on its fascia, to open/close the CD tray. Everything else is operated by Evo’s remote control or the StreamMagic app on your smart device. CD album artwork, and track information, is rendered beautifully on Evo’s 6.8” color display.

Built to Last

Because it’s constructed from carefully selected and uncompromised materials, Evo CD is as robust as it is good-looking. Like your CD collection, it will stand the test of time – unlocking the music and memories tied-up in those albums for many years to come.
