A 5" LCD color display helps you keep track of your files and playback sources, while an HDMI video output allows you to use the X30 to create slideshows to accompany your music.
Play and Rip CDs
For fast CD ripping, CA X30 uses an optical disc drive (ODD) with 24x high speed. It can rip a one-hour playing time CD in less than 10 minutes. It will catalog your CD collection by album, artist, genre, year, and will store all ripped CDs into the music database. X30 provides four ripping options (encoding): WAV, FLAC, MP3 or OGG

The X30 provides three digital outputs, such as TOSLink, coaxial, and AES/EBU XLR, which support up to 24-bit/192 kHz. This means the X30 can be used as an audio server and source device for those wishing to use an existing external amplifier and DAC
Multiple I/O
It offers various audio inputs and outputs for connection to other audio devices, as well as a TV. Three digital outputs, two analog outputs, two digital inputs and two analog inputs allow high connectivity with multiple devices. And the dual digital inputs mean the CA X30 can be used as a DAC with other digital audio sources
