Woo Audio WTP-1: Top-Loading CD Transport

WTP-1 Top-Loading CD Transport

WOO Audio is proud to introduce the WTP-1 Top-Loading Red Book CD transport. Together with the WDS-1 D/A converter, this transport offers the highest CD playback quality. The special suspension of the drive module ensures highly accurate readout and resistance to vibration.

The WTP-1 has two digital outputs, an S/PDIF output with RCA connector and an Optical output.

High quality construction features include an all-aluminum chassis with no screws visible from any viewing angles, individual power supplies for both digital and analog circuitries, a custom built toroidal power transformer, multi-layer military grade PCBs, and an aluminum remote control. All of the above are the results of our extensive focus on vigorous product development and improvements.

The clock source is an ultra high quality crystal oscillator located at the DAC chip, for lowest possible jitter.

Foot Stands, a set of four: $15
The foot stands are necessary when stacking the WTP-1 CD transport on the top of the WDS-1 D/A. They allow extra stability and keep one of the feet from pressing down on the power switch./span>

AC Umbilical Cord: $10
You will need this cord in conjunction with the WDS-1 D/A. This custom-made short AC cord (30cm or 1-foot) connects between the AC Outlet of the WTP-1 CD transport and the AC Inlet of the WDS-1 D/A. This cord allows one to switch both units on by pressing the top power button.
