The Passion 430 CD Player was added to the range in November 2013, filling the need for those users who wanted to own a Passion CD player but did not have a requirement for a CD transport. Modelled on the transport, it has a Cirrus Logic DAC on board. It maintains the same switching array on the front panel as the CDT450 but the rear panel presents an entirely different range of options.
With a choice of RCA or Balanced analog outputs, the CD 430 also has a Coaxial output which has its own dedicated on/off switch for use as required.
