GENERAL
Congratulations on your purchase of the Audio Note CDT Five CD transport.
Audio Note is highly critical of the digital medium as presented by compact disc; we
sincerely hope that you too will find this transport breaks free from the 'digital mould' that we
are all so accustomed to, and so open a new window on your CD collection.
Please read over this manual carefully in order to obtain the best possible performance
and longevity from your transport.
UNPACKING & INSTALLATION
1.) Please take care when unpacking the CDT Five. We recommend that you store the
packing materials in case the unit requires shipping at a later date.
2.) Next, select a suitable location for the unit, for example, a dry and dust-free area
which is not exposed to direct sunlight. Place the CD transport on level flat surface free from
vibration.
3.) Please remove all 3 transit screws, located on the top of CDT Five and marked with
yellow washers, to release the sprung sub-chassis.
4.) For best results the CD transport and the sub-chassis should be properly leveled.
Please make sure that the CDT Five sits on a leveled surface and then adjust the three chassis
adjustment screws with the 4mm allen key provided. Turn the screws clockwise to raise the
suspension and anti-clockwise to lower it. The distance between rails of sliding door and
borders of sub-chassis should be about 5 mm. The sub-chassis should not knock the main
chassis when pressed down and released. Turning the screws anti-clockwise too much is
unallowed and can cause the damage to the unit.

Connections:
Connectors on the back of CDT Five unit provide a digital output for connection to your
DAC via your digital interconnect with RCA connectors. XLR connection is optional, please
contact your Audio Note dealer if you require it. Your dealer can advise on suitable type and
quality of cable eg: - Audio Note PALACE is an excellent choice.
Power connector: An IEC power connector is available for connection to the local supply.
Simply connect this to a convenient power point using the supplied cable. For further
improvement is sound, we recommend to use Audio Note SOGON mains cable.
The transport's sonic performance will start to improve as the internal parts 'bed' in.
The transport requires about 400-600 hours of operation before the bedding in process is
complete.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Compact disc transports have built-in error compensation circuits to correct minor
manufacturing defects on a disc. In some cases, defects on the disc, which are too large for
the error compensation circuits to handle, may cause the CD player to skip some tracks during
playback. If this problem occurs, play a new disc, normal playback of the new disc indicates
that the previous disc is damaged in some way. However, if the problem continues, it is best to
have the unit serviced.
