Compact Discs may be a 20th century legacy format, but most people still have a perfectly good collection of CD in their homes. If not used these may just be collecting dust, or sent to landfill. Your CD music is wholly owned and not just licensed from the cloud. So, why not exploit what is yours?


The diminutive 4040CD casework, with its extruded aluminium front panel, matches the 4040A integrated amplifier. Technical advances and circuit miniaturisation over the last 40 years no longer need heavy casework and power supplies to extract digital music accurately from CD.


The 4040CD has an intuitive user interface and sophisticated menu system, which are easily navigated by remote control, or via the discreet front panel push buttons.

Digital Outputs

4040CD offers three types of digital outputs for the discerning audiophile, including transformer-isolated SPDIF (via coaxial RCA), professional balanced AES-EBU (via XLR), and optical TOSLINK.


A useful built-in DAC is included for convenient stand-alone analogue audio output via stereo RCA sockets. However, to ensure the highest quality audio reproduction, it is recommended to connect to the 4040 A by SPDIF coaxial or optical digital output, to leverage the amplifier’s excellent ES9018K2M ESS Sabre32 Reference DAC.

Power Supply

The key to the 4040CD transport / players impressive performance and small size is found in its efficient and rock-steady external DC power supply. The multi-region power supply adapter provides a solid 12V DC voltage to feed internal voltage stabilisers that power every part of the circuitry.


Audio signal sensing enables the 4040CD to reduce power consumption by powering down non-essential circuitry, when not required, to less than 0.5 W. Timeout can be adjusted in the menu.

CD Quality

Properly recorded and well-maintained CDs can still provide resolution equal to most streamed music. The Compact Disc’s native 16 bit 44.1 kHz format is adequate for most music replay and is not compressed.

By comparison, most streamed music undergoes some form of compression to shrink its file size, with consequent losses. As a bonus, CDs provide a positive tactile experience and provide artist and title notes.
