dts CAD-5 professional
Had this some years now and just never had it fully connected up for vintage dts use. I may soon.
Its sort of rare as these hardly ever show up on ebay. I got mine though private sale. They may show up on other selling sites but again pretty rare and so is the user manual as well. I can't find a single manual for it besides other dts CAD encoders.
