The Red Book standard specifies the physical parameters and properties of Digital Audio Compact Discs (CDDA). Pure CD players are, in contrast to DVD or Blu-ray Disc players, frequently better in playback of stereo CDs. The drive is specifically optimized for 1:1 playback of the Red Book CDDA standard. 

A CD drive is only as good as the servo which controls it. The Blue Tiger CD-80 servo developed by Stream Unlimited is the most advanced on the market. 

The CD Box DS3 uses the famous PCM1796 which has been used in many high-end CD players and designs in the past, and has the most analog, sweet and easy to listen sound character. The CD Box DS3 also offers a line level RCA output which can be used for any pre- or integrated amplifier, and also two digital outputs to further pass a digital signal to another DAC.
