My head is in the cloud still after reading this post. Thank you all for your input. :) by the way!!
Ok. Assuming I have a great outboard Dac and want to invest in a CD transport. I know some of you rolling your eyes right now.....lol. I am a big fan of old tech and have found CDs sound great if the recording jives.
Below is taken directly from the Cambridge Audio website:
Inside most transports, you’ll find:
- A transformer for power
- A laser to read the information from a disc
- A motor to spin the CD at the right speed for the laser
- A servo that operates the motor for how fast the CD spins under the laser
- A CD tray to carefully align the disc with the motor and the laser
- A digital output.
Correct me if I am wrong! Base on this information above, a CD transport doesn't have anything to do with the built-in clock, recock, converting the digital signal to Analog etc...purely carries digital signal to the Dac for processing...
1. Wouldn't it make sense to purchase a decent unit without breaking one's bank account?
2. Why is it the more costly one such as Mark Levision no.37, for example, is justifiable purchase?
I am torn..inexpensive or expensive CD transport.....LOL.
