I own the CDQ. What would you like to know? I don't use mine as a pre-amp, but as a CDP and I stream 24 bit FLAC with my laptop through the USB. It has 6 or 7 filters, which is way overkill IMO. I finally settleed on one filter because I found myself switching filters in the middle of songs. The tray is a little flimsy, but so has everyone I've ever owned. It sounds fantastic with my setup. The owners manual is amazing, which is a good thing because the CDQ is complicated if you take full advantage of it. It runs very warm, and sounds best after its warmed up for 10 - 15 minutes. My plan is to purchase a SS amp to run in the summer and use it as a pre amp so I don't have to run my tubes.
