I'm looking to purchase a new CDP. I've been using a Nakamichi MB-1 w/Wadia DigiMaster 32-X D-to-A converter for 16 years... I've been very pleased with them both they still sound great and function very well. I feel the MB-1, is getting a little long in the tooth and I think it's time for retirement she has served me well.
I'm interested in recommendations for a new CDP and/or Transport.
If you have the itch or its time for something different sounding Meridian is very musical. Try to demo a couple of different manufacturers to give you an idea of what your looking for. Esoteric and meridian are very different and you would like 1 over the other but both are great players.
Raysonic 168. Add cryoed NOS Russian tubes (www.tubeman.com), Herbie isocup/balls, Morrow Audio MAP 2 power cord, Machina Dynamica Code Name Tourquois and you've got a player that rivals the Zanden separates- or so says Srajan of 6moons.
