I've tried the Auric Illuminator and several others but the Essence of Music is simply the best cd treatment I've ever tried. It makes me realize it is not putting the data on the cd as much as how we retrieve it from the cd. I never thought cd could do depth very well. But I was wrong. It can also sound effortless in an analogue manner[but still not analogue]..but so close at times I've been listening only to my Essence of Music treated cds. This is a jump in cd playback in my system, in my room. YMMV. But it is simply stunning...such a fullness of notes..etc. cheers, bluenose
When you rip a CD the effectiveness of the rip is a function of how well the CD laser reads the disc, just like it is in real life when you play the CD. so, that's why following whatever regimen one uses for playing CDs when ripping them is a very good idea. Things like EOM, demagnetizing the disc, coloring the disc, ionizing the disc, beveling the disc, etc. All of these things will improve the rip.
