Drive IV


Presenting the DRIVE IV: a pinnacle CD transport delivering uncompromising quality. Employing the top-loader principle, it’s designed exclusively for CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs.

At its core lies the high-end CD module CD-Pro8, sporting a solid diecast metal chassis for exceptional stability and damping characteristics. The DRIVE IV prioritizes a perfect power supply, featuring two high-quality, magnetically shielded transformers for pristine voltage feed. Individual power units for various components prevent signal interference.

Every component is meticulously chosen, matched, and finely tuned for perfection. The housing boasts solid aluminum plates and chrome-plated brass parts for both tactile pleasure and stability. The laser’s integrity is preserved by a light-absorbing painted interior and a magnetic puck for precise CD positioning.

Operational simplicity defines the DRIVE IV, making it a refreshing choice in a world of overloaded devices. The user-friendly remote control complements its ease of use.

Combined with other ACCUSTIC ARTS® components, the DRIVE IV produces the ultimate sound experience, ushering in an unmatched auditory journey, all crafted “Handmade in Germany.”
