The CDA2 Mk2 is well equipped, sound great and reduces your system’s box count and wire mess. What’s not to like?

THE EAR-NET REVIEW
http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/atc-cda2-mk2-cd-player-dac-preamplifier
The CDA2 Mk2 is well built, comprehensively equipped and highly revealing, but more importantly it makes familiar material engrossing, it makes you listen longer and dare I say it, louder. ATC has driven down distortion and noise so that more of the crucial timing and imaging cues can be heard, in the process they have delivered their finest digital product yet…

Hi-Fi News Verdict
The music centre, ATC style: the CDA2 Mk2 may have all the air of ‘a horse designed by committee’, as it does so much, but this is more thoroughbred than camel, with a wide-open sound, masses of detail and unrestrained slam. It makes a fine partner for power amps and active speakers alike, getting on with the business of delivering the music without adding or subtracting anything. If it does all you need, it’s a bargain.
