I used to sell the CD12 when it was current and have listened to again it more recently. It is still one of the best transports I have ever heard at any price. When it was current it was considered one of the most musical and well balanced players, and it still is.
If it has any hint of weakness it would be the DAC which can be outdone by some of the best DAC's, but barely.
BTW, you will hear a lot of people claiming that they can equal and/or beat the sound of any CD transport with the best computer server setup via USB, or pro soundcard etc... I've tried to accomplish this myself using the CD12 as my benchmark for comparison and nothing even came close.
