Does R810 play CDs?

This answer applies to:

  • R810

R810 does not have a CD player built in, but if you want to play CDs this is easy to do, simply by connecting a USB CD drive to the USB-C socket on the rear of R810. When connected, R810 automatically adds CD to its list of sources and then using R810s RotoDial you can control CD playback just as you would a built-in player, with functions such as play/pause, skip, shuffle and repeat all available.

Most PC compatible USB CD drives will work with R810, but the two we currently recommend are listed below. The first is a good quality but affordable slot loading drive and the second a top end drive in a machined alloy case with damping to control resonance etc. Use your favoured search engine to find out more about each. Please note you may require an additional adapter to convert USB-A to USB-C so please check the specification of each model.
