AcousticPlan DriveMaster Transport and DacMaster DAC

Tone Imports' Jonathan Halpern was on hand to demonstrate the new AcousticPlan DriveMaster transport and DacMaster DAC which retail for $4,200 each and were designed and built by Claus Jaeckle. There is also an optional power supply upgrade for $2,000 that will run two units.

These are small but superbly crafted units, and obviously use a novel approach to spinning a disc. The DAC features SPDIF BNC, I2S, and USB inputs.

Interesting, but I think the DriveMaster transport does resemble the 47 Labs Flatfish CD player, which has been around for ten years or so (http://www.sakurasystems.com/products/47transport.html).

First time I'd seen something where the disc was actually wider than the player though.
