“I was shocked when the ATC went head-to-head with my more expensive Shindo preamp and bettered it in some regards, and it worked very well with my tubed power amplifier. With ATC’s CDA2 Mk2 offering pleasing tonality, resolution, and dynamics, a versatile feature set, and rock-solid build, all for a decent price, it’s impossible not to crown it with the highest recommendation. It can provide a fine starting point for a solid high-end system.”

Ken Micallef, Stereophile

“So as you’ve probably figured out by now, I ended up loving the CDA2 Mk II. It is a beautifully designed component that can do multiple things very well. It does a great job as a CD player, an external DAC, a headphone amplifier and a preamplifier. This might be a perfect buy for someone who is looking to simplify their life, or start delving into a great system without buying a bunch of equipment at once. Time and again I was surprised at how well it got to the heart of the music. I know that ATC designed the CDA Mk II with one of its self-powered speakers. Since I was impressed with their speakers in the past, I’m sure that it would be a dynamite pairing.”
