last year I had the pleasure of listening to both the Aesthetix Romulus cd player & the newest Parasound spinner.
The owner reported that both of these players trump the EAR, in fact, he will not stock the EAR anymore.
Still, I would like to demo the EAR mk III just for a comparison against the Aesthetix & Parasound.
Keep me posted on this matter- Happy Listening! -JA
The Romulus does everything right- no faults. The dealer/retailer is John Fort Audio -Dallas TX. Go on a Saturday for the best listening experience. JF is a pleasure to deal with- no pressure, mix/match gear for your audition.
He will concur that if you are unable to spend the higher price for the Aesthetix, the Parasound is a very close 2nd.
Keep me posted & Happy listening!
Thanks Jafant, I've taken the plunge on the Romulus which I'm expecting to arrive in a couple of weeks. It will be replacing my current source, a Cary 306 Professional. I'm a beliver in keeping it simple, the Romulus will be paired with an LFD NCSE II integrated amp, Joseph Audio Pulsar speakers, along with Shunyata conditioning and Zitron cabeling through out. Looking forward to posting my impressions soon.
I do look forward to reading about your listening sessions.
I have always wanted to demo the Cary 306, as I have a large collection of SACD(s). This will be a wonderful shootout.
Are you going to keep or sale the Cary 306?
Keep me posted anytime on this very interesting matter.
