Sorry that I can't answer your question comparing the two pieces but I just bought the ECD 1 to use with my CDP. The dac is absolutly remarkable. I think it is the single biggest improvement I've made in my system. I would say that if you have a good CDP now use it as a transport and go for the dac and a good digital cable. I would like to compare the Elec.CDP to the ECD 1 also but I can't imagine the difference could be worth the price difference. I would also love to compare my new digital front end to SACD playing red book. The dac is really, really good and I encourage you to listen to it.
