Audio Aero Prestige/ HD

I have owned the Prestige for over a year and
just figured out it reads HD recordings.I have
a quite a few of the Minn orchestra. Nice surprise.
I spoke with Jodi and he confirmed that it does have
the chip HDCD.
Great information, Saxman2. Thanks. It's surprising that Audio Aero doesn't mention this in their literature/specs.
Also, if cd is your only source, try unhooking the analog
inputs. In my system it has a lower noise floor and much
better bass. The results may vary between systems. I am
using the AA into the Dartzeel pre amp with a stealth indra interconnect.
PS; the HD probably has to do with licensing????
