CEC’s Belt-Drive CD Transport
In 1991, CEC introduced the TL1, the first product to use a belt-drive CD mechanism. All over the world, audiophiles and music lovers took note and gave the product an enthusiastic reception. Never before had such a wealth of detailed musical information been extracted from compact disc.

And now, CEC presents the TL51X compatible with CD-R/RW discs incorporating the previous sophisticated belt-drive technologies. In the TL51X, the spindle motor, which drives the disc, is completely isolated from the mechanical chassis by the belt drive. Any vibration or electromagnetic noise arising from the motor are either shut out or absorbed at the source. As a result, quiet and smooth rotation is achieved on a level that a conventional CD player cannot reach.

The Super Link allows the input of an external DAC clock and that this clock is automatically recognized by the player as the master clock.
