About the Integra CDC-3.4

Listen to your favorite CDs uninterrupted

I can still remember the first time I saw a 6-disc CD changer — I was in awe of the machine's ability to play tunes for hours on end. The Integra CDC-3.4 keeps the music coming as long as you like, thanks to a carousel that lets you change out five discs while one keeps playing uninterrupted. It will play your standard CDs, as well as CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and MP3 discs.

Listen to your favorite CDs uninterrupted

I can still remember the first time I saw a 6-disc CD changer — I was in awe of the machine's ability to play tunes for hours on end. The Integra CDC-3.4 keeps the music coming as long as you like, thanks to a carousel that lets you change out five discs while one keeps playing uninterrupted. It will play your standard CDs, as well as CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and MP3 discs.

Noise-free music playback

The player looks sleek on the outside, but the real magic happens inside the chassis. Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry creates a noise-free signal path, and there's a high-quality 24-bit/192kHz Wolfson DAC that renders every note clearly and accurately. The player's 8x oversampling eliminates annoying jitter — timing errors in the digital signal that can reduce clarity and smear musical detail.

Programming and control features

Sure, you could play each CD all the way through, in exactly the order you put them in the carousel, but what's the fun in that? The CDC-3.4 features 40-track memory playback, and a whole host of convenient repeat modes: all discs, random tracks, memory tracks, and more, right at your fingertips. 

The included remote control lets you run the show while you're relaxing on the couch. And there's a Remote Interactive (RI) connection on the back panel for simplified automatic operation of Integra or Onkyo audio/video components.

Features

6-Disc CD Carousel: The Integra CDC-3.4 is a CD changer with a 6-disc carousel. You can load up to 5 discs while one is still playing for extended listening times without interruption. Once the drawer is open, 2 CDs can be changed, then you must use the Disc Skip button to change out the remaining three. It features smooth & quiet mechanical operation, plus a soft blue light which illuminates the disc tray for better visibility.

Disc Compatibility: The Integra CDC-3.4 supports playback of Audio CDs, as well as CD-R and CD-RW discs with MP3 audio files. MP3 discs must be ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2, Romeo or Joliet compliant. MP3 files must have  a sampling rate of 8kHz-48kHz and a bit-rate of 8kbps-320 kbps (128kbps recommended). The CD changer can recognize up to 499 MP3 files and up to 99 folders per disc.

192kHz/24-Bit DACS: The Integra CDC-3.4 utilizes a two Wolfson 192kHz/24-Bit DACs and 128-times oversampling for excellent sound quality reproduction from the digital to analog domain.

Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC): Conventional analog filters reduce digital noise at the D/A conversion stage, and then the VLSC uses a "Vector Generator" to output a smooth and noiseless analog signal. This results in a dramatically improved sound quality for all types of music signals.

Direct Digital Path: Direct Digital Path signal routing provides a shorter, cleaner path from the signal processing PC board to the digital outputs than typically found on other players. This direct signal path routing is used to prevent corruption of the signal by noise from the ICs and power supply.

Stereo Analog Output: The 6-disc CD player is outfitted with a stereo analog RCA output for connecting to your stereo receiver or integrated amplifier. The stereo RCA jacks are gold-plated for excellent signal transfer.

Optical & Coaxial Digital Outputs: The Integra CDC-3.4 is equipped with two digital outputs. There is one optical (toslink) and one coaxial (RCA) digital output. Both digital output support audio sampling rates of 32kHz, 44.1kHz, and 48kHz.

LCD Screen: The Integra CDC-3.4 features a front-panel LCD screen which can display remaining track and disc time, disc and track name, and various ID3 tags for MP3 tracks (such as artist name and song title). The unit's display brightness can be adjusted to Normal, Dim, or Dimmer.

Front-Panel & Remote Controls: There are 19 push-buttons on the front-panel of the CD changer. Front-panel controls include Standby/On, Open/Close, Disc Skip, Disc Select (1-6), Play/Pause, Stop, Previous/Next Track or Folder, Fast Forward/Rewind Track, Repeat/Random, and more. The CD changer also comes with a 34-button IR remote control that will control all of the functions of the front-panel, as well as other advanced functions like direct track access via the remotes numeric keypad.

IR Input/Output: The IR input (3.5mm) can be used to connect an optional IR receiver (sold separately), which can be used to pickup IR signals from the remote controller when the CDC-3.4 is located in another room, installed in a rack, or is out of range of the remote controller. The IR output (3.5mm) can be used to connect an IR emitter (sold separately), which can be used to pass remote controller IR signals received by the IR input along to other AV components.

RI Input/Output: RI remote control input and output 3.5mm jacks allow you to transmit remote codes between compatible Integra components.

RS-232 Port: The RS-232 port is used to connect the CD changer to an external 3rd party controller (sold separately).

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Looking for a high-quality CD Carousel Player to replace my ADCOM GCD-700, which has served me very, very well for approx. 25 years. Lots of use, but it has finally worn out. I like to load up the Carousel and play CDs all day long! Very extensive CD collection. Researched many brands, the Integra seems like the best currently available. I have purchased from Crutchfield before and have always been satisfied. Thanks! [ ROGER  Jul 23, 2019 ]

I have been looking for a good replacement 6 cd carousel changer and this one fits the bill. I looked at the reviews and decided to go with this one. [ TONY  Apr 27, 2019 ]
A
I read the reviews [ Christine  Mar 24, 2019 ]
A
This is not Carol. I am George. Please get your info correct. I chose this item to replace an old Sony CD changer that failed and I wanted a replacement. There aren't many choices at this time so I picked the one that sounded best from reviews and the product description. [ Carol  Mar 09, 2019 ]
A
Best player of it's kind . [ James  Feb 22, 2019 ]

This will my match my Integra DTM-5.3. Also the reviews were great from other sites. [ T  Aug 27, 2018 ]

Q
Will this work with a BOSE 321 box?
[ Marie  Oct 09, 2019 ]

A
Because I am not familiar with the Bose equipment, I am unable to provide a reliable response. I can say that I am 100% satisfied with the Integra, however, and recommend it highly. I am using mine in conjunction with a McIntosh C-46 preamp and a Mc402 amplifier, driving a JBL Paragon and a pair of JBL Olympus C-50 speakers.

Q
Is the scratch & Dent a new cd player?
[ Joseph  Mar 21, 2019 ]

A
no it was not listed as that and looked totally new in perfect condition the player plays as a clear upgrade to my old rotel cd player which was a very good high end product I initially thought I wanted a used rotel from Ebay but had trouble with one and very correctly bought this one it probably sounds as good as or probably better than my old CD 101 classe' that listed for about 3500 from around 2007 might buy one for bedroom
[ sal  Mar 28, 2019 ]
A
I would not know. I bought a new unit.
[ robert  Mar 21, 2019 ]
A
I believe it's the ladtest model. I had a previous version which lasted over 10 years with heavy use. The 3.4 basically is just an upgraded version but operates like the older versions. I think for a multiplayer CD they are excellent.
[ Eric  Mar 21, 2019 ]
A
Mine looks new. I purchased a "scratch and dent" car CD player here almost 20 years ago and it still works. As does my Toyota Camry!
