About the Primare DD15

A solid foundation for great CD sound

Primare's DD15 is a compact high end CD transport with a stylish minimalist look. If you've only ever owned CD players, you may be puzzled by the concept of a CD transport. But accurately reading the information on your discs is the first step to great CD sound. The Philips slot-load disc drive that Primare chose for the DD15 was originally developed for automotive use. It's extremely reliable and well isolated from both external and internal vibrations, ensuring long life and low noise.

A solid foundation for great CD sound

Primare's DD15 is a compact high end CD transport with a stylish minimalist look. If you've only ever owned CD players, you may be puzzled by the concept of a CD transport. But accurately reading the information on your discs is the first step to great CD sound. The Philips slot-load disc drive that Primare chose for the DD15 was originally developed for automotive use. It's extremely reliable and well isolated from both external and internal vibrations, ensuring long life and low noise.

Many years ago I got to audition a separate DAC and CD transport from another respected high-end audio company. I was mainly interested in the DAC, so I started by using my CD player as a transport and, sure enough, the DAC easily outperformed the one in my CD player. Almost as an afterthought I replaced my player with the CD transport, and was startled by further improvements in sound quality. Among other things, the transport provided tighter mid-bass.

Pair it with a high-quality DAC

No matter what DAC you plan to use, sending it the purest digital signal will ensure the best possible sound. Primare suggests partnering the DD15 transport with one of their Prisma components with a high-quality built-in DAC, such as the SC15 Prisma preamplifier or I15 Prisma integrated amplifier.

Stylish sound from Scandinavia

Founded in Sweden in the mid '80s, Primare relies on a talented team of designers to create its innovative high-end audio components. Among audiophiles, their equipment is admired both for its exceptional sound quality and its elegant appearance.
